I haven't done a lot of swapping lately but when Linda from A Swap for All Seasons
graciously invited me to be part of her Mini Sampler Swap I just couldn't say no. The way the swap works is we'll make and swap a mini sampler stitched piece each month so that at the end of the year we'll have several pieces to make into a beautiful hand stitched garland. Isn't that a great idea? I think so too. My January mini sampler was stitched by Becky
and I just love it! Look at all the wonderful details. She sent along a fun tag and nestled the sampler in its own stamped bag. Thank you so much Becky!
My February sampler came from Sally
and it's so pretty. I love the vintage images and the sweet spring colors. Sally slipped the sampler in a decorated envelope and also included a lovely handmade card. Thank you Sally!
Here's my January sampler sent to Joyce
And for the February swap I got to return the favor to Becky and made this piece for her...
This has been so much fun. I love finding bits and pieces of things I have at home and working with them to create something new. Thanks Linda for dreaming up another wonderful swap!
