I also want to quickly thank snippa and Johanna for nominating me for awards recently. You're both very kind and I'll look at them in more detail when I'm back in the UK next week...I'm currently sunning myself in gorgeous Portugal!
But the real reason I'm writing today is because of Kerry's (Kestrel Finds and Makes) genius Summer Sewing Swap idea which she announced back in May. I knew I had to play! The concept of throwing your name in the hat, getting randomly paired with a fellow blogger and then exchanging sewing goodies, is simply a stitcher’s dream!
For me, this dream became even more perfect when I found out I got paired with Katie from The Little Red Squirrel. If you haven't had the pleasure of discovering Katie's blog, you really are missing a treat! This beautiful lady will blow you away with her sewing and knitting skills, as well as her fabulously retro sense of style.
Anyway, here's what Katie sent me in the swap:
Some lovely teal cotton pique, pretty pearl buttons, a chic 1960s sewing pattern and a cute 1980s crop-top sewing pattern, together with a very kind note!
Thank you so much Katie for my amazing goodies...I can't wait to get back to the UK to start hatching plans for them. And thank you Kerry for coming up with such a fun concept!
To see what I sent Katie, just hop on over to her post here.
