Blogger swap

So we're a little bit late to this party as everyone else posted about their swap at the end of February, gosh we're almost a month behind, where did the month go???  Back in November I took part in the super fun blogger swap organised by Miche and Martyna, so when they asked who was up for another go, I jumped at it. My partner was Jenny from the experimental crafter, she writes a crafting blog with some really cute stuff.  I recommend checking out her latest post about making a yarn pendant, I love it! However, we were frowned upon by the postal gods and the first parcel Jenny sent me went missing in the post (hence the lateness of this post). Jenny very kindly offered to send me a second package which luckily did arrive safely. Here's what she sent me:

One beautifully wrapped parcel. So much better than my poor wrapping effort. 

Such cute ribbons for crafting or accessorizing some of my me-made clothes.

I love this sewn illustration that Jenny has made. It may have to become a patch on an item of clothing at some point. 

I don't know what this is (apart from a piece of fabric) but I LOVE the pattern. I'll have to think of something fabulous to use it for. 

Jenny sent me one of her own illustrations. It's so cute and I'll have to find a spot for it in my sewing room. 

This last item came from Austria. The dancing people are so sweet. I have no idea how I would use this so any ideas are really welcome, please comment. 

Check out the swaps that these lovely ladies did.  I loved seeing their posts and discovering some new blogs.

Contact Miche or Martyna if you want to take part in the next swap. It's a really fun thing to do.


  1. I'm glad this package made it to you safely! I'm having lots of fun with my goodies :)

  2. Such a cute package! What material is the last piece made of? Maybe it could be used as a coaster, or a patch or maybe even glued on to a notebook cover!

    Thanks for joining in on the swap again :)
