One of our swaps for the Friends Having Fun Swaps this year is wool. I mentioned that I will have to start collecting some as I didn't have any in my stash. The lovely Fiona (Bubz Rugz) offered to send me some.
A big fat satchel arrived! I don't think Fiona could have stuffed any more in! Now it's got my mind working thinking about what I will make my partner. Thank you so much, Fiona. It was so lovely of you to start my stash!
Yvonne from Yvonne W Designs recently had a giveaway of a button set she used for her Triptrych that is in the January edition of Homespun. I was the lucky winner. How pretty is the paper the buttons were wrapped in!
Here they are. Yvonne makes gorgeous buttons and brooches, as well as designs lovely patchwork and stitcheries. You can see them here.
I finish the little sparrow stitchery for Operation Sparrow that Jenny of Elefantz told us about. You can read all about it here on her Operation Sparrow post. I'll give it a good press and then pop it in the mail.
I made this little wall hanging for my Great Niece, Ava,
for her Naming Day yesterday. The fabric is
so much prettier in person. This was one of the lovely fat quarters I won on Donna's (Donna's Lavender Nest)
