Colour Swap

Despite my sewing challenges, I managed to keep clicking "join" to various new bees, and swaps.  One such swap was run by Cheryl over at Gone Stitchin'. The Colour Swap required each person to send 4 things in the color of our secret partner's choosing: something smelly, something for a room in the house, something edible and something personal. One item had to be handmade. This sounded like fun, so I joined in and my partner chose ... aqua. What a challenge!! Here's what I came up with:

little aqua TV shaped beaded coin purse (personal)

Partylite Votives (smelly) & espresso (or shot) glasses :)

Placemat with heat resistant batting (handmade)

aqua fabrics (for the sewing room) & chocolate

I think I see some aqua in this candy necklace (edible!)

My new discovery - note taking napkins - GENIUS! 
As for me, once I entered, I promptly forgot the color I'd chosen so I had an extra nice surprise!

my beautifully wrapped items
I chose GREY! Soap, candy, sachet, heart and

Beautiful organizer with pockets and... 

AMAZING embroidery!!
such sweet details
I would definitely join this swap again - such fun!

Also, if you're interested in some Pay it Forward goodies from me, I still have a spot open! Just leave me a note!


  1. Your aquas look wonderful. I also like all of the grey goodies.

  2. Hiya Francine, if you are still looking for a PIF buddy, I would love to...and you rocked that swap :) Your grey goodies look wonderful and the aqua choices are great. Hope your machine troubles are solved by now.

  3. Oh what a fun swap! I like what you got and gave :)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! Sure beats talkin' to myself! :-)
