paper bag swap


Most of you will know I'm a member of the Handmade Craft Forum where lots of chatting , swapping , sewing and crafting goes on .Recently we had a "paper bag swap " all this meant was we sent a paper bag full of various crafty bits to our swap partners eg. fat quarters , ribbons , buttons etc . We then were able to make whatever we liked from the bag and then sent it back to our partner . I was so lucky to be partnered with Sandy (no blog) as from all the various bits she put together this lovely stitchery . It is so nice when you can see how much effort and friendship goes into the work . Thankyou again Sandy .
