Yes I am one happy girl!! I think by now you know that I am a little obsessed with swaps and participate in them frequently, right? Well let me show you why I am so happy!!!
Nicky set up the Stamp it Up Swap shorty after Fat Quarterly Retreat because she loved the Rubber stamp class we took with Tacha. I HAD to join in that swap because I love printmaking too!! For my secret partner I made a pencil stamp and stamped some pencil 'fabric' and made that into a sleeping bag pencil case (tutorial by ayliN-Nilya).

Of course the most exciting thing about secret swaps is that you get something sent to you in return!! After seeing all the fab things being posted in the Stamp it Up Swap Flickr group and wondering which item would become mine, I received this PERFECT little open wide pouch from Sonia of Fabric and Flowers. She chose my fav colours and even added some hand stitching along the base. And look - a yummy red zip. Isn't this the sweetest thing? Thank you Sonia - I LOVE it!!!!

What did I receive? Well let me tell you! I am thrilled that I received a pair of perfect Flea Market Fancy and linen box pouches AND a huge length of Flea Market Fancy scalloped bunting!! Lucky duck me or what!!?? I've wanted some bunting for my sewing closet for ages and this is awesome!!! And the sewing on the pouches is very very professional - I am in awe!! Thank you Rachel / Creative Quilt Girl for stalking me so well!!
