Spring Sewing Swap 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!
