The Keeper Swap

I can now show you what I sent my swap partner in 'The Keeper Swap' that Sandy held over at Cookies & Cream Craft.  The idea was to make a Scissor Keeper to exchange with your swap partner.  I hadn't made a scissor keeper before so I thought it was a great chance to make something like that.   The lovely Cate was my partner in the swap and so this is what I sent her.

I used a free design by Lynette Anderson for the scissor keeper but added my own embroidery bird on the front.  I then used a pattern from an issue of Homespun magazine for the needle keeper.  And I made them using Rosalie Quinlans Sweet broderie fabric range - which is one of my favourites. 
I was then very lucky indeed to receive this gorgeous parcel in the mail from my swap partner Cate.  Look what she sent me! 

Aren't I lucky!  I love it!  Thankyou Cate!  This swap was fun.  Thanks Sandy for a great swap!
Happy Sewing!
