I have been waiting all week to show you what I made for my Secret Easter Swap and this morning Leanne at Lizzie the Quilter has received my package....
I was really nervous about so much, would it arrive in time for Easter, would it arrive at all! would Leanne like it... etc etc!
Well I made 3 things and sent 2 of them... First I made a crochet beach bag and after 6 balls of Rowan cashmere soft and 2 balls of King Cole cashmere I finished it only to realise that it was quite a heavy piece of work especially once I had lined it
I will take a picture this week and add it!
Then I made a Daffodil wall hanging which I designed myself and used a heart shaped hanger, unfortunately I lost this on the Thursday and I was suppose to be posting it on the Friday!
Now I don't usually panic but oh my I was so annoyed that the little hanging had disappeared I phoned my mum, I phoned Joanne I even had my children looking for it....
I gave up and did the only thing I could and spent all weekend making another item.....
and Miss bunny was born!
I was late posting and on the Monday I was frantically packaging my parcel and I picked up a pile of fabric to put it away and there was my wall hanging
So I quickly stitched up the opening where I turned it and popped it into the box
Hence the lack of photo! doh!!
Leanne has emailed and she loved the wall hanging and little Miss B plus I sent some fabric from my stash and some chocolate hearts.... so all's well that ends well.
The lovely lady that has organised the swap was Julie from Bush baby jag and I would like to thank her for organising this lovely swap, she has had a few swapee's let her down at the last minute though and I think its a real shame when people sign up and then don't send something, I realise that it takes time and postage cost money but I feel its a really nice way to make new friends all over the world and its worth every penny and every hour of my time.
Happy Easter everyone
