Hi everyone, I signed up on Cherylls Blog to make three mini quilts this year and the first one was an Easter Swap for my partner Kerry, I made this mini quilt using this Easter sampler pattern from Red Brolly.
I included a hand made gift tag that was made in Photoshop using the Easter design I had stitched and I used a photograph of the fabric so that it all co-ordinated, I then made some hand made gift tags and a bag topper to match. (You can locate the round gift tags and the gift bag topper as a free download on my freebies page.) The little yellow crochet pin cushion was a perfect match for this set so I included that too.
In my next post I will show the gift that Kerry sent to me.
I also signed up for a swap on Ravelry, my partner Heike lives in Germany and this is what she sent me. Thankyou Heike, I loved it all!
Heike sent me some Kit Kat and Mars Bar chocolates that were demolished pretty quickly, a hand knitted shawl in my favourite colour, some gorgeous silk yarn, a cookery book, coffee, a pretty pin and knitting markers, as you can see everything was so nice, I am really pleased with these gorgeous gifts. I cannot show you what I am sending Heike until she receives my gift, she should receive it by the end of April and then I will show pictures on my blog.
