Spring Swap

May Kristin sent me an email yesterday that the Spring Swap package I sent to her has arrived! She hasn't posted on her blog yet, probably because she is about to go on a trip, but thats okay, I can finally share what I made for her!! I sent a tote bag, a little wall quilt, a pincushion and some sugary goodness: Peeps and Pez.



This little wall quilt pattern was in the most recent Australian Homespun Magazine (those of you in Australia probably have had a couple of issues since this one, because we seem to get them with a delay). I decided not to use the little alphabet border that was part of the pattern.


This pincushion was from a tutorial that I saw on a blog somewhere a while ago (sorry, I don't remember where) and I used a DVD as the template for the circle.



And the totebag was one of those patterns that I recently ordered from Australia. The pattern is from the Rivendale collection. This was VERY hard to give away, I really wanted to keep it for myself!!

Beautiful work! Your swap partner is very lucky.

Where do you find Homespun around you? I can't find it locally. :(

Such a lovely parcel you sent Tracey, I can see why you had a hard time parting with the tote.

That is one gorgeous bag, I can see how it would be difficult to part with it.

What great springy gifts! They are beautiful. I'm sure it was hard to part with them especially with our less than springlike weather here in CT.
