Spring Sewing Swap
What a wonderful thing a sewing swap is. I've never taken part in anything like this before and i'm already looking forward to the next one, it's such a great way to find new sewing friends and i'm so glad that Kerry at Kestrel Finds and Makes set this up.
I was partnered up with Helen from Grosgrain Green, I've loved looking at her blog to help me figure out what I'd include in her parcel - staying within budget was tricky, but I managed it, adding a book that I'd got two copies of. - I hope she has fun using the stuff I sent her.
I received my parcel last week and Helen had given me such beautiful and carefully chosen items. There was a cute little button box and hidden inside was the most exquisite binding I've ever seen. Red gingham bias binding, with a crochet picot edge. I'm looking forward to using it soon. A selection of stunning buttons from the polished button and some beautiful silk thread in my favourite shade of turquoise/green. I've seen this stuff on Etsy before and I can't wait to use it!
Thank you Helen.
