a swap for all seasons no. nine - what I received from my partner

We've finished number nine at A Swap For All Seasons, can you believe it?! I sure can't!

Yesterday I received the sweetest sampler from my partner Elizabeth, at Tales From The Pond. So darling, I love it so much Elizabeth! Thank you bunches, it was a pleasure to meet you and be your partner.

Elizabeth wrapped everything up so charmingly in the colors of Fall, made me smile. (Oh how I wish it were Fall here in Los Angeles - I can't remember when it wasn't hot, it's been hot for so long here.)

Hope you're having lots of fun out there crafting and stitching!

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

Number nine sampler completed and received in A Swap For All Seasons, only three more to go now.

Dear Debbie, of Kitten Creates, was my partner to create something for this time around. Debbie loves to sew and quilt and I had found this fun fabric with a notions theme and thought it might be something she would enjoy.

And talk about serendipity and convergence of craft supply hoarding LOL! I found the fun vintage graphic for the card in a 1938 issue of "Home Arts Needlecraft" magazine I picked up several years ago and I found I had a vintage pack of rick rack and made a copy of the magazine graphic and rick rack label to use - both blues matching perfectly, like they were meant to be together. YIPPIE!

It's been a pleasure being your partner Debbie, I had so much fun making you a sampler!

Happy Stitching!

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

Can't believe we've completed eight rounds of our mini samplers in A Swap For All Seasons now! So much fun and so much delicious creative Happy Mail. 

Yesterday I received my sampler from my lovely partner, Jan, of Jan's Arty Junk. So charming! I love it so much Jan. I adore house images and Jan made it even more special and dear, by adding our address numbers to the wee hoosies. Made me giggle out loud, so very sweet. Thank you so much Jan!

I've begun number nine for my partner, so there'll be more to share hopefully soon.

Wishing you very happy remaining days of summer and a lovely long holiday weekend!
