Spring swap part 2

Me again!

In my last post I shared all the gorgeousness Steph made me so now is the time to share what I sent to Steph. 

As you know I've been learning to crochet so I made a small granny blanket (moon pie sized let's say!) in colours that reminded Steph of spring. It's funny we both said yellow and green, Steph said white too and I said purple/lilac. Here you can see it with two new sock of the day candidates, a unicorn bag and some bits that went into the parcel.  

I made Steph a daisies in the lawn biscornu, it's funny that we both used daisy buttons on the biscornu! 

I also made Steph a felt book too, I made it so a page can be added each swap. The purple is the cover and green the spring page. The four seasons design is from a book called 2 hr country cross stitch that I've had for years. 

The inside cover has a place for cards and the spring page has an iris on which is one of my favourite flowers. 

The other side had a pocket to hold a mini cross stitch kit. 

And the back cover has a 4 seasons charm on some lovely hand dyed felt Laura gave me ages ago.

As it was Easter I made this little bunny cushion with Pom Pom tails. I found the chart here 

I enjoyed making all of this but I think my favourite make - just, was this stitch. It's a design called spring ride from The floss box and I knew as soon as I saw it it would be perfect for Steph. I finished it with some fairytale fabric into a cushion. 

The box wouldn't have been complete without some crafty bits, I really liked the varigated wool and the tortoise fabric was cute! 

I always end up with a last minute make and this was it. My daughter goes to preschool down a village lane and there is a bank of muscari which inspired me to bead this. 

So that was the spring swap. The ideas for the summer swap are already in flow and I've even made a few sketches and have several bits on various wish lists on t'internet!! 

Next up is the wedding and a few holibob pictures. Thanks for reading xx

  7. Thank you so much for my amazing Spring treats! *hugs* Mmm..well, the granny blanket might well be Moonpie sized but he's not having it!!! ^_- Actually he has stolen it several times and I have reclaimed it! The fabric book is so beautiful and so clever that pages can be added. I wore the brooch to the Pop In and it has had lots of favourable comments ^_^
