wow, everything in the gallery looks great!!
i have pics to post up from day 7 onwards..i know i've been slack but i've been working like crazy. when you work two jobs in retail christmas isn't a holiday at all!!
so, the last of the smalls was a blue and white crochet bookmark:
now, onto the mediums:
a punnet of knitted strawberries! admiteddly for about a second i thought they were real strawberries but then realised my partner wouldn't have been silly enough to send real fruit in a swap lol!
an embroidered patch with a butterfly. i'm thinking i wil use this to embellish one of our plain boring calico "enviro" shopping bags.
and two placemats with cross stich embroidery
some lovely scrapbooking paper as well as a scrapbooking magazine
for "hello kitty day", a knitted hellokitty purse with a matching coin pouch
and now for the large items:
a gorgeous hand beaded pin cushion. the beads make a bird pattern and there is a pair of bird shapes sewing scissors attached. Sansa said this was the item she found hardest to part with and i understand why, it is really beautiful!!
and on Christmas day:
my favourite item, an Amy Butler weekender bag!! the fabric is gorgeous, blue and brown is my favourite colour combination!! and it will be the perfect size to take to uni on days when i have take my laboratory coat!! for an idea of how big it is, i used a pillow to pad it out and make it stand up for the photo
thank you so much Sansa for such a great swap!!
