Scrap Bag Swap 2012

It’s always exciting getting parcels in the mail… and today I received my parcel of fabric scraps inside a beautiful scrap bag as part of the Scrap Bag Swap 2012.

My partner, Tracy from Stitcherynz was extremely generous and had obviously done her homework on me.

* Gorgeous vintage fabrics: tick!

* Super mind reading skills: tick!

…Somehow knowing that I really wished I had more of a certain Alexander Henry bird fabric that I had used the absolute last of on a little wee project… (see the fabric on the far right of the pic above.)

…Annnd Tracy must have read this post, to know that I needed more vintage boat fabric to make Noah more shorts!)

* Heaps of more lovely fabric, not mention a lovely professionally made bag: Tick!

I’m just finishing up making my own scrap bag to send off tomorrow, and after receiving this lovely haul – I have to admit that I’m just slightly feeling the pressure and hoping mine is loved by my recipient as much as I love mine!

Actually the parcel in the mail was perfect timing as I was just about to start a project inspired by this pin.

Well, I’m actually just planning on doing a pillowcase like this – for when Isabelle goes into her big bed, in order to tie the colours from her quilt and duvet in together.

It turns out some of the fabric that I received in my parcel is going to work in perfectly!

Have you had any lovely mail recently?

I'm doing a t-shirt embellish swap so next week I'll be expecting two little t-shirts for my two little gentlemen and I'll be sending the two t-shirts I embellished around the country... so not yet, but I'm looking forward to a lovely parcel in the mail!!
