Spring Sewing Swap 2014

July 3, 2014

I signed up for Kerry’s annual Spring Sewing Swap again this year – I mean, who doesn’t love a bit of guilt-free fabric shopping, and also receiving sewing parcels in the post?  Not to mention getting to know some other bloggers!

I was paired with Annika of Naeh Connection, and she was much more organised than I am.  She contacted me early on, and sent me my parcel with loads of time to spare.  I bought Annika’s main thing at the Minerva Crafts meet-up, but didn’t get round to actually posting it until the last minute – but thankfully just in time for the deadline.

From Annika’s blog I could see she likes sewing for her children (who are a similar age to mine), and she likes sewing with jersey for herself.  She likes bright, colourful prints and geometric designs.  At the Minerva meet-up I was so pleased to find some lovely geometric-print jersey, and bought 1.5m of it which should hopefully be enough for Annika to make a top for herself or something for one of her children.  The fabric was the main thing, but I threw in a few extras, of course!

Annika sent me a total winner of a parcel…

1.3m of gorgeous polka dot Georgette with co-ordinating thread, buttons, zip and trim, and a lovely card.  Thanks so much, Annika, I love it!  Such a happy colour and of course I’m always going to love polka dots :-)  This might end up as a dress for Little Tweedie…watch this space!

I also sent Kerry a little something to say thanks for hosting the swap.  I hope both recipients of my parcels were happy.  I’ll be stalking Kerry’s blog to find out what goodies everyone else received!

    Hi Louise,
    thanks again for your nice parcel. That geometric print is so fun. I’m knee deep into sewing projects that I have to finish before our vacation, but afterwards there is going to be some nice “me” sewing ;)

      Hello. You are very welcome! Glad you like the jersey. I’m going to use the georgette to make my daughter a dress. I bought the lining today, so hopefully I’ll have something to show you soon! Have a lovely holiday.

    How lovely, a sunshiny parcel. Glad you’re happy with your parcel and that you enjoyed the shopping too, that’s a big part of the fun isn’t it?
