This was not a secret swap so we were able to get to know who our partner was and what they like. Agnes of @finallysewing was my partner and I sent her a set of hot pads, a hanging tea towel and a trivet for her kitchen.
I also made some greeting cards - a hobby I have recently re-visited. I made my own cherry and leaf stamp to make these.
I added some candy, a couple fat quarters in her favourite colour (pink) and a cherry cross-stitch kit and posted it across the ocean.
Agnes sent me the most amazing Social Tote - I have wanted one of those forever and have not been brave enough to make one!! A cute cube pincushion came in it. Look at the perfect fabrics - birds and cherries everywhere!
Agnes also made me a needle-turn applique mug rug/mini quilt - very well done :) She sent loads of extras too -- a frixion pen and cherry charm....
...and some amazing wooden spools with washi tape on them and...
...Cherry Koolaid , a sausage dog pen, fabric and some cherry stickers! I was spoiled rotten - thank you 'sew' much!!
I really do love swaps - you get to know someone new and get to be creative in what you make and send. Then - you receive an amazing parcel full of surprises!! So fun!
Yes, the #verycherryswap was awesome! Thank you Agnes x
I love the hot pads and towel. They are so pretty brightening up my kitchen and are used daily! Glad you like the social tote because if you hadn't I would have kept it. ;-) One day I'll make another...
