Spring Sewing Swap

I recently participated in Kestrel Makes' Spring Sewing Swap. My first sewing swap. What fun! I was paired with Stephanie of 10 Sewing Machines and a Serger who lives in the US.

It was very exciting to get to know someone through their blog and choose things to send to them.

Once I had sent off my parcel to my Stephanie, I was stalking the post box waiting for my parcel to arrive, like a child at Christmas!!

I got the following:
Knit fabric
A Silhouttes pattern (Dana's top)
A marking pen

I had never heard of this pattern company and am very keen to use the fabric Stephanie sent me to make up the V neck version of this top.

Love the sewing themed card!

 I unfortuantely did not take a pic of what I sent Stephanie, so I have shamelessly "borrowed" a pic from Stephanie's blog to show what I sent her!


  1. It was great fun! Thanks again for all the lovely goodies :)

  2. Sewing swaps sound so fun. I'm excited to see what you do with your goodies!

  3. I've never heard of Silhouettes either, but that pattern looks like a great basic to have in your collection.

  4. I love your blog; I've nominated you for an award.

  6. Wow! Such fabulous treats - I love the 'in anticipation' photo! I've just posted about my goodies from the lovely Philippa - do come and take a look! Thank-you Kestrel for setting this up :)
