I took part in The House of Pinheiro's recent Craft Swap, it was my first time taking part in one and it was really quite exciting (maybe I don't get out enough...!).
I was paired with Kate who blogs/blogged here and after a few emails I bit the bullet and got making! The swap was nautical themed and I struggled a little but this is what I came up with...
|A rosette corsage|
|Swarovski and Sterling Silver Earrings|
|A Bow Hairband|
|Some Nautical Charm stitch markers|
I put all these things in a red with white polka dot makeup bag which I forgot to take a photo of then popped it in the post to start it's trip to the other side of the world!
A few days later the postman brought me a rather exciting parcel with an Australian postmark....
In it was a gorgeous pair of fingerless mitts (which have inspired me to start knitting my jumper, more on that another day),
some fab sticky labels to mark pages (it will make a change from using ripped post it notes) and a double ended crochet hook which I am excited to learn how to use!
Thanks Kate for a fab swap :)
Now, off to knit my jumper....
