A friend of mine asked me to join a swap she was organising and I did.
We are to swap 4 different items over the year.
We've just completed our second swap, which was

I was lucky to receive gifts from Christine and they were perfect!

Thank you Christine.
(sorry should have rotated the picture first)

I was to send to Cheryl.  I have never met Cheryl so this made the task a little tricky.
Plus we were in the process of moving house, so most of my sewing supplies were in boxes.

I made a pouch with a Tilda illustration that I stitched on the front.

I used Tilda fabric for the back.

A scissors keeper/pin cushion combo and stork scissors.
Again using Tilda fabric.

A hoop holder and small needle case,
again using Tilda fabric.

A flour sack tea towel that I embellished with a strip of Tilda.
These are great for drying dishes.

It all fits inside the pouch.

All wrapped up and ready to go.
There was also a box of chocolates that almost didn't make the trip.

A fun swap enjoyed by all, I think.
