I participated in the Initial Heart Swap this year, run by Swap Mama Cheryll.
I was to send to Pam and I also received from Pam.
Here is what I sent to Pam.
This was my first ever heart finish and also the first thing I made up on my new sewing machine this year. I found a pattern for a heart shaped oven mitt and followed the instructions but instead of using batting and making it flat, I filled it and made it into a stuffed pillow instead. I cross stitched the "P" on some white linen and used some fabric roses as embellishments.
I also sent along a box of fruit shaped jellies, some hand dyed thread and a roll of ribbon.
Here is what I received from Pam.
A gorgeous Michelle Ridgeway stitchery design made into a mini wallhanging. As you can see from the photo, I found a hanger for it straight away and its already displayed on the wall. Pam also included a large bag of jelly jube lollies which are my favourites.
Thank you Pam for a great exchange, I really enjoyed it, and thanks to Cheryll for organising.
Until next time, happy stitching/quiltingLisa
