We the People Mini Swap

This terrific mini swap was organised by Tracey over at Itching 2B Stitching. Thanks Tracey!

My swap partner was the delightful Kerri-Ann from idlenotions. I encourage you to visit her blog. She is a young mum with a beautiful 14 month old daughter. She doesn't get to sew and craft as much as she would like but she has made some very pretty things.

I was so happy to receive from Kerri-Ann a lovely parcel of goodies including a variety of fabrics (including some pieces of her school formal gown) along with pretty ribbons, buttons and threads. Fantastic!

What Kerri-Ann doesn't know is that I just love hot pink and lime green. I made a blouse in those colours a couple of weeks ago. I also love purple and have been collecting purple fabrics for a quilt. I'm thinking I could make some cards with some of the pieces Kerri-Ann has given me.

Thanks a bunch Kerri-Ann! I really enjoyed sending my parcel of goodies to you. It was a fun swap.

Happy Stitching


  1. I'm so pleased you liked you little pack of goodies. I'll have to remember to include some chocolate next time as well! I do hope you'll be able to find some use for the pieces I sent you.

    I am just overwhelmed with your generosity - just so kind. And I'm sure there will be plenty of mischief for me to get into when my little Miss Chief Mischief lets me get to the sewing machine!! :-) Thanks again. This was a fabulous swap!

  2. You are a lucky lady. New "toys"
    Have fun.

  3. How great that Kerri-Ann included fabric from her formal dress! it looks like you recieved a lovely package :)

  4. Lucky you!! Hope we get to see some of the results of this little goody bag. :o)

    I am sure you will make good creative use of them!!
