Swaps


Isn't blogging so much fun? I recently did two swaps with two of my dear blogger friends, for one of my strawberry pincushions. The top photo is the swap received from Sarah from 'If Only I Had Chocolate' blog (in Tasmania). Sarah made some fabulous pushpins and magnets for her market stall. I was admiring them, and asked if she'd like to do a swap. She also added a bundle of assorted red ribbons. I do love red!  Lovely!
We caught up recently, when she was here in Queensland. We had a morning shopping at the bustling Eumundi Markets.


The next swap is from Amanda of  the 'Krafty Panda' blog (Queensland). Amanda made these gorgeous owl pin toppers, don't you just love them.....each one is different. They are made from polymer clay. Amanda has a tutorial on how to make the cutest little mushroom pin toppers - do have a look.

I am one happy girl.....
Cheerio,
Sandi x

P.S. If anyone would like to do a swap for a strawberry pincushion (see sidebar for photo), let me know......
