Friends With Benefits Swap!

 I was in the Friends With Benefits Sew-Happy House Mates Swap organised by Kathy of Sew-Happy House. My partner was the gorgeous Cheryll of Gone Stitchin'. Cheryll and I had a lot of fun teasing and taunting each other about our "secret sewing"!
 Cheryll made me this lovely hanging. The words on it are "Feather your nest with love and friendship".

 Look at the beautiful tea cosy Cheryll knitted for me.

There was also some fairy dust to "put some sparkle into my life", a note book and pen, a chicken hanger and some friendship tea.
Thank you Chez for my lovely presents.
This is what I made for Cheryll. When I went looking for a hanger I was so pleased to find this one. A heart between two friends. So appropriate for our swap. I also bought the same hanger for my hanging from Chez.
A close-up of the wording.
Thank you Chez for being such a fun partner. I enjoyed making this special friendship hanging for you and putting your parcel of goodies together.
Thank you also to Kathy for organising this fun swap.

wonderful gifts on each side. There is something very special about a handknit tea cosy. My sister has made me three which I use daily, changing them when washing is required. I have bought a book of very imaginative cosys that I am looking forward to making, specially after viewing your new one.
