My first swap!

Thanks to the lovely Ruth, I really enjoyed my first swap. We decided on a pincushion swap, surely there can't be too much that can go wrong there ;) And what a beautiful pincushion Ruth sent me! Some of my favourite colours are aqua and teal, so it was just perfect. Her sewing is great too, and the pincushion has already been well used!

Ruth was also kind enough to get some fabric packs from Amitie for me while she was on a trip to Melbourne, she picked me some fabulous packs :)

Ruth's lovely wrapping - this button has joined my button collection :)

The beautiful pincushion:

Ruth also included a packet of quilting pins, which I don't have - they have already come in handy when I was basting my d9p quilt together.

Miss M was most impressed by the pins, she loved how they all had different shapes.

And here are some pictures of the fabric packs Ruth sent to me.

So cute!

And what a beautiful mix of colours!

Thank you again Ruth for such a wonderful swap experience, I can't tell you how much fun it was to open your package! And I had a great time choosing fabric and buttons and ribbon for your pincushion, all the time not having to worry about whether I was getting in over my head in a scary swap LOL. I'm really looking forward to doing another swap with you :)

:-) I enjoyed it too! The fabrics look great - nice to see more than just the little bits in the packs lol. I really liked the last one!

Well done to both of you, what a fantastic idea for your first swap. Now you know that this means you have to participate in the next EB Newbie swap :)
