Although I think for most of us Spring is still waiting to show its sunny side, I do have a couple of things to show you that may brighten your day.
The lovely Betty of Betty the Wood Fairy recently organised a Spring Bouquet Swap, the idea being you make or buy something spring themed for your swap partner. I was teamed with Andrea over at MemeRose who creates the most amazing crochet and has a wonderful flair for home interiors.
Andrea has now received her swap parcel so I can tell you all about it.
Andrea and I emailed each other and I did lots of stalking on her blog and found out that she loves pastel colours and has a thing for swans. So with my trusty google search engine I surfed the net looking for just the right fabric and boy did I find it!
Now, although the fabric did have flowers on it they were roses so not very springlike so to incorporate the spring element I searched the web again and found a tulip shaped bag pattern which I used to create a bag just for Andrea.
The pink fabric is recycled from a curtain sample.
I found the perfect button in my button box.
I also enclosed some very sweet cotton reel chocolates that I found in NEXT
and a pretty pansy embroidered mini hoop that I picked up on one of my many charity shop trips.
I can't wait to show you what Andrea sent me........
