I have been busy getting my swap gift completed for the Maker's Swap that was orgainsed by the evervescant Miya. Miya has paired us with a swap buddy and mine is Mari from Kentucky, US.
I must admit , when I peeked at Mari's shops on Artfire and Etsy , I suddenly became very nervous trying to decide on what I could make for her , that would not look too poorly in comparison to the stunning jewellery that she makes. ( I knew I should not have looked !!)
We were all supposed to have our swaps posted by 1st April, but mine is a tad late and will be sent this afternoon. Fingers crossed Mari likes it!.
I discovered the lovely blog of Gail Pan Designs who has some gorgeous quilt and stitchery designs and was lucky enough to be the winner of her giveaway !
Do pop over to her blog and have a look, Gail has a sweet freebie BOM Christmas quilt stitchery that would be easy to make and be a great gift for someone special this Christmas.
Yesterday was a lovely warm Autumn day and Emily pottered around in the sandpit then had a wee rest underneath the rose bushes.
When I approached her she asked me to "sshh"and "be quiet please Mummy...you might scare the fairies !! " .
I hid back around the corner and listened to her having the sweetest little conversation with her fairy friends !
Oh, to be 3 again !!
