Itching 2 B Stitching - An Easy Swap

This terrific no fuss swap is being hosted by Tracey at Itching 2B Stitching. The swap involves sending 15 scraps of nice fabric (at least the size of your hand open and fingers spread slightly) to your swap partner. Click here or on the picture above for more details.

There was a parcel waiting for me at the post office yesterday from Jen at Life's Just a Ferball. Jen makes the most amazing things - quilts, bags, soft toys, knitted items, etc. She is a very talented and creative soul. She is also lucky to live in beautiful Tasmania ( off the southern coast of Australia). You must visit if you ever get the chance.

In the parcel was this delightful little chap and a piece of amazing hand-printed fabric by Kristen Doran Designs. Unfortunately, this photo does not do justice to the earthy, organic look and feel of the fabric. It's printed with Matroyshka Dolls.

Thank you Jen for this lovely present!
