workin on my swap...

thought i might just give you a peek at what i am working on at the moment. i am in a FRIENDS swap with the lovely beki . we have decided to make it a swap more for the kids and after making my purchases i felt that it lacked a personal touch. so i have started a stitchery for each of them and here is a peek at the first one.
i found a little quote and to add beside this sweet angel, hope the new owner will love it. not sure what to do with it when i am finished stitching but i will back it with some matching fabric. it might just look sweet on the bedside table or placed under the pillow for sweet dreams.
any suggestions are welcome. that is the problem with me, because i am new at this sewing game i start something without knowing how to finish it off.
p.s. i love rainy winter days off :)


  1. Oh My Lordy!
    How do you ever get time to keep on crafting!!!!!
    I have my felt and two ideas I am desperate to try.
    But Laundry,cooking,cleaning and then overwhelming tiredness but evening takes over and I do Nuthin!
    Your little stitchery will be very cute.

    P.s In regards to your comment on my blog,I too wish you were closer,My girls need some play mates and so does Mumma! lol!

  3. I love your blog. I think my children would enjoy trying to make some of these softies. Do you use a pattern, or do you just make up your own?

  4. So so cute, can't wait to see it finished!!
