Published by at 7:48 pm under Uncategorized

The day finally came to open my swap. The swap was organised by  I was partnered with Jo of  Jo is amazing with all the sewing and knitting that she does. She even sews laundry bags for soldiers. Check out her blog.20161221_105522Look a whole box of pressies for me! I was so excited. Alycia and Cassandra helped me to unwrap the gifts. We all got a massive buzz opening all of the items. Jo, you are amazing. 20161221_105536The first item is this really cute bear pin cushion. Isnt it adorable?20161221_105603My next favourite items are the jar covers. Wow, they look really time consuming to make. They are beautiful, I just want to look at them.20161221_105904Jo, stacked them on top of a jar that was filled with cardboard blackboard tags with some white chalk. I can see these lining up in my pantry. If you have a pattern for these I would love to make some for my friends. I am too selfish to share these because I like them too much.20161221_105734Here is a lovely pastel coloured bag that folds into a smaller little bag as seen in the following picture. Jo even sewed my initial on the front.20161221_105911You do amazing work, Jo.20161221_110230I love these face cloths. The yellow one even has my initial on it. They are so soft and colourful.

    I am so happy you like my gifts. I don’t feel it is enough for what you sent me… The jam covers were done by any x-stitch or stitchery you like, add a circle around it add some lace and back it. I didn’t have a pattern. Hopefully made them fit some jars. Glad you are happy with them. I liked those chockies too. We all need to drink more water so hope this helps…. enjoy them…

    Did you notice on the red cloth is a rolling pin, a saucepan and a flour pot…. anyway I think that’s what they are. You can use them as dishcloths too.
