I really look forward to this swap every year...
Such a great opportunity to make something lovely & mail it off - accompanied with some additional love - to someone else in blogland.
This year, I made Initial Swap items for Linda, who blogs at Sew Nicely.
Using a very pretty thread & design, I made a pincushion & needlebook, adding Linda's initials.
Some lovely little extras were added too - the (hopefully) useful sort, & the yummy sort😉
As Linda lives in Ireland, I mailed off nice & early, so she would have it for Valentine's Day.
Got to love these pins... with their heart-shaped heads💟
Although I've not heard from Linda yet, I'm sure my parcel has arrived to her & I can safely share these pics.
No Initial Swap parcel for me yet... not to worry, mail that doesn't have a window is welcome any time!
Thank you Cheryll for another great swap xx
My family have been celebrating for other reasons last week, too, in addition to V's Day.
We attended separate Graduation ceremonies for my DDs... one on Monday night, the other on Friday night.
While they are very grand & somewhat long events, they are also the formal recognition of the hard work of each student & their achievements. Both my girls have further studies to do before they can begin to establish their careers, but they're well on their way. I'm so happy for them in their achievements... they work so hard & are so focussed.
I still haven't made the binding for my Sow's Ear Quilt... really must do that this week, so it's ready for when the quilt comes back from the quilter.
Have a Great Week Ahead
