Still Here And A Strawberry Swap....

Good afternoon everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Wow....where does the time go?..... It has been a while since my last post...about 4 months to be exact but I promise I have been very busy....not much crafting done but busy all the same.

I thought a blogging break would be good for me over the summer as I felt that my posts were getting just a tad boring and a little stale....so there has been a reason for my absence....

Anyway I'm back and one thing I have done over the summer is to take part in a swap....

Tracy at  Mad About Bags hosted a Strawberry Swap and I was partnered with the lovely Kim from Wisdom With Needle And Thread and this is what I received from Kim....


The beautiful stitched plaque is now in pride of place in my kitchen where the colours match perfectly and the lip balm is in my work bag....I love lip balms and am never without one. Thank you Kim for such gorgeous gifts.

And this is what I sent to Kim...


It was such a pleasure to put together this strawberry themed package for Kim but it was so much harder than I thought to find strawberry themed items.

I also made a card with a strawberry theme to send to Kim...


My water colouring wasn't perfect but it's been a long time since I'd made a card and I really enjoyed colouring this cute little image.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I hope you are all still out there.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Hi, Debbie! So happy you liked the gifts - I must say, you definitely outdid yourself with the ones you sent to me. I'm still searching for the perfect frame for your card - it will hang in mu studio next to the little stitchery that says "I Love Strawberries". THANK YOU so much, my friend!
Hugs
KimM

That looks like a great swap. I took part in a 'box of sunshine' swap a few years ago. I have such fun making and finding all sorts of sunshine themed things
