Dolly Dollop's Colour Swap

Back in February the lovely Claire at Dolly Dollop organised a colour swap with a deadline of posting by the 31st March .... a very important date at Lala Towers as I will be clocking up yet another year.  Today the postie brought an early birthday parcel for me from my swap partner Bridget at Born To Sew and I am absolutely thrilled.  Bridget's chosen colour was blue and with a bit of luck her parcel should be delivered today (that's if she's not under a couple of feet of snow!!) and my colour was green.  These are my lovely goodies

In case I forget who I am .... highly likely given my time of life ;-)

Bridget this is fabulous and you must have been reading my mind as I was thinking that some Lalabibaby bunting would be just perfect for my stall at craft fairs .... I was like a child in a sweetie shop when I opened this and my OH gave me the oddest look .... I've been trying to explain the principle of blog swaps to him and I think he's finally getting it!

Some lovely Rowan yarn to Get Creative with (thinking cap on again) and a pretty hand made card

A very handy pin cushion to attach to my sewing machine .... why didn't I think of that ..... I'm forever cursing when mine gets knocked on the floor or I stab my legs because it's squashed in between my knees!

Something very very tasty for nibbling on (alright scoffing) when I sit down with my crochet hook this evening ....

Somewhere to rest my teapot ..... in my favourite crazy patchwork .... Bridget is obviously a girl after my own heart and uses every last piece of lovely fabric ..... isn't it amazing how a pile of offcuts can be transformed into something so pretty and useful.

Thank you Bridget ..... I am absolutely thrilled and I hope your like yours too x

and a big thanks to Claire for arranging the swap .... she has been a very busy Easter Bunny and has just opened a web shop Patch Fabric & Haberdashery ....  pop over and take a look at all the lovely goodies x
