It all seems to be swaps and giveaways at the moment - normal service will resume shortly! BUT before it does I had to show you the amazing swap goodies that Wendy sent me. I've been reading Wendy's blog The Crafter's Apprentice for a while and loving all the different crafts she tries so I was very excited about this swap. And with good reason, look at all the lovely things she sent me! First up some gorgeous granny bunting:
I haven't decided where to put it - probably in my bedroom as I think it will look fab hanging above my bed.
Next, a gorgeous owl softie. Wendy knew how much I loved her bunnies in a similar style but if its possible I think I love the owls even more.
If you love them as much as me then you could head over her shop and snap one up yourself!
If that wasn't enough look at all the other goodies I got too:
Wendy sent me a lovely lavender filled heart (the package smelt amazing), a gorgeous pouch which I have already started using:
A really cute card with a mini quilt on:
And finally this beautiful bracelet:
Hehee - I am a lucky girl! Thanks so much Wendy - I love it all so much. Once again I feel that the package I sent is nowhere near as good as what I received!
Wendy told me she liked red and blue together and I think I went a bit mad on the theme. Here is what I sent:
One of my octomonsters! I never would have made one in these colours but I am really pleased with the results.
I know Wendy loves bunnies (she has FOUR!) so I included this cute little amigurumi rabbit.
And I put the two fused glass necklaces I was sending in this little pouch:
I've really enjoyed doing the two swaps I've done recently - what could be more exciting than receiving a package full or surprise goodies in the post? It is so fun! If anyone else fancies doing a swap then please feel free to get in touch (although I might need a little break to get on with all the other stuff I need to make!) and I'd love to arrange something :o)
Hope you all have a lovely week xx
PS. The bunny and pouch will be going up on ravelry soon so if you want to know where I got the patterns you should be able to find them on there!
