a swap for all seasons no. eight - what I made for my partner


Time is surely flying! Can hardly believe we've completed our eighth sampler in A Swap For All Seasons! Two thirds down now, one third remaining.

I made my eighth sampler for Linda, our swap creator and hostess.  I knew Linda enjoys vintage fabrics and images and combined that with a vintage embroidered doily I had in my stash. 

It was such fun to be your partner and make a sampler for you Linda!

Happy stitching everyone!

a swap for all seasons no. seven - what I made for my partner


ACK! Terrible photos, I could kick myself. I took these with my iPad and forgot to take some ("slightly") better ones with my camera (I'm monumentally camera challenged). sniffle sniffle. 

My partner in A Swap For All Seasons for July was darling Jan, of Jan's Arty Junk. I always need a theme to get going and July and summer = the beach, to this Southern California native. 

It was such fun to meet you Jan and make a sampler for you!

This swap is such a delight - meeting all these lovely kindred crafty souls and (surviving LOL) the challenge of thinking of something new each month and trying new things. So inspiring.

Wishing you new crafty adventures!

seven of twelve

Seven of twelve, mini fabric samplers now received in A Swap For All Seasons.  Loving this group of creative ladies, inspiring, supportive, kind and this fun swap. It's a real challenge for me every month to come up with an idea but so very rewarding. 

Thank you again Linda, for hosting this swap. Thank you Joyce, Marti, Linda F., Joy, May, Sherry and Patty for my darling "seven of twelve". Excitedly awaiting eight, nine, ten, eleven and twelve!
