I received a package from New Zealand, with this fun zippered pouch enclosed.
Stitched up by Sally Reynolds, there was also a sweet brooch enclosed.
I love her tagline, "Upcycling as fast as I can"! To see Sally's artwork click here and her handcrafty shop here.
I sent a package to Mara in Greece. She has two blogs. She writes about her family and crafty projects here. Her other blog is filled with beautiful images of Greece, and I could not resist stitching her a handmade gift that reflected all the Aegean blues I saw there.
I decided to use some of the lovely bee ribbon I had been hoarding in my sewing cupboard.
I also used a bit of the custom twill tape I had ordered from Lillalotta when she was having a sale earlier this spring. (I long to get back to my Etsy shop once we have shifted gears in the big scheme of life!)
I am very grateful to Anne for getting all of us organized...I'm guessing it took quite a bit of time and energy!
