A few months ago I signed up to take part in the second instalment of Very Berry’s fabric ATC swaps. After having so much fun the first time, I couldn’t wait to take part again! I have been meaning to share pictures for ages now but I never got round to it!
First of all, here is the one that I made for Angela of Pretty Little Things in a Box. I have been a follower of her blog for ages now and she was the person who intro Swap-bot and Postcrossing, so I have been desperately hoping that we would get paired for a swap eventually, and what a wonderful one to be paired for!
I know that she likes fairies, so I picked a fairy from the ‘Autumn’ section of my Fairy Cross Stitch book (we both love cross stitching too!) and I made this for her:
You can read Angela’s blog post about it here!
I also received this beautiful ATC from Jacqui! In her letter she was very apologetic but I don’t think she has any reason to be! I love the ATC…it’s beautiful! She said that it was the first time she has done hand stitching and, having been there, I know how frustrating and difficult it can be but I think Jacqui has done a fantastic job! Don’t give up just yet!
Thanks again to Ali for organising a wonderful swap!
And, as promised, I am going to announce the winner of my giveaway! As I had two entrants, the result very literally came down to the flip of a coin!
And the winner is…
