It's Swap Season...

I have had the busiest time these last few months with lots of lovely swaps, after the two Magic balls, and two Fabric Swaps I also joined in the Cupcake Swap, the Autumn Swap and the Handmade Christmas Decoration Swap... I am loving it!

The only drawback to swapping is you can't show what you've made until you have sent your things, so it may look like I'm not making much but trust me I'm beavering away in the background.

The most recent swap was the Cupcake Swap, organised by my my twitter friend Jodi I was paired with Jo from Pickle Lily.  We got in touch and agreed to send 6 items and we turned this around quite quickly.
Look what arrived this morning...

 

Gorgeous! I love it all, especially the felt needle case made by the talented Pickle Lily, Jo's daughter.

 
This bag is my new crochet bag, it's just perfect!


My current WIP, mini crochet squares for my throw,


Jo has blogged about this too here, but this is what I sent to Jo, I actually missed a little gift out and have posted it separately (not shown here!) due to my scatterbrain!



Great minds think alike, we both sent a very similar cupcake keyring,

Thanks again lovely people, and thanks to Jodi for hosting it really enjoyed this one x

I mentioned above I've joined in the Handmade Christmas Decoration Swap hosted by my friend Lynda over at Hookin' With Laalaa ~ pop over and have a look, I'm looking forward to this one.


Right, on with the Autumn Swap...

... before that, I think I need to make a few cupcakes now, it would be rude not to use those pretty cases wouldn't it?

I love the colors of everything!! And that IS a great crochet bag. Right now I'm working on a knitting project and I have everything in a plastic bag - very professional, I know. I just sent off my first swap ever, and I forgot to take pictures. Grrrr....
