A direct swap, this one. She sends to me, I send to her.... Keep it simple, no great mystery, but great fun.
Her preferences? simple bright cheerful colours. Happy and bright. Other than that, anything I like.
Now swap guidelines are maximum measurement, 9". Must have a fastening of some description. And a surprise.
So I did a teensy bit of stalking, and decided I had some really cheery red linen that would be perfect. But you cannot leave it there, now, can you? so...
And a few lines of stitching with my Sulky,
And we have a pouch. Simple, but, I hope, sweet.
And the surprise?
a dumpling pouch, they are sweet, useful ( I keep sewing machine needles stashed in one of these, then I know where to find a new one... ) and fun to put together.
And I made a pincushion to put on her machine.but somehow, no pictures of that...
And I received, a beautiful linen pouch in return!
And a small notebook included, for the surprise.
Thank you Karin! It is perfect.
