Craft swap...Part 2

If you have arrived here and haven't yet read my previous post, Craft swap...Part 1, please scroll down and read that post first.
So...a few months back I signed up to do my very first craft swap, at a fabulous blog called Craftaholics Anonymous. It had been arranged by a lovely lady called Linda, she is based in the US and very kindly matched us all up with various people / Craftaholics worldwide. And what a fabulous job she did. Thank-you Linda. xx
I had a fabby swap buddy named Ros, another funky mama who loves to sew. Check out her fun blog here. And leave her a comment, trust me..she will LOVE you for it.
So here is what I made for Ros.

A tote bag and a zippered pouch, which fits in the tote bag. And these gorgeous patterns were from a lovely blog called Noodle-head, which was created by the talented Anna Graham. If you would like any of these patterns, and others, pop over and see Anna and her blog.

Well, that's it for tonight readers, must get back to the sewing machine, I hear it's sweet call.

Craft swap...Part 1

Yesterday...I heard the crunch of footsteps coming up my path....I raced to the front door...for I had been awaiting a special arrival....and there it was on my doorstep...the package from my Craftaholics Anonymous handmade gift swap buddy! And I actually squealed with delight when I saw it there, lying suggestively on my doorstep ;)
I raced back inside and ripped it find the most beautiful handmade delights from my new found blog friend and funky mama, Ros.
And here they are. A gorgeous handbag with beautiful big button (vintage I think?, which is my absolute favourite kind of button!), a gorgeous Christmas apron, or pinny, as my mumma would have called it (can't wait to swoon around in this little number on Christmas day, it is sooo gorgeous!), and a very cute felt and button Christmas tree decoration, which is taking pride of place on my tree this year.
Thank you so much Ros. This was my first swap, and this has given me the desire to do more. You are a gorgeous funky mama with so much talent. xx

Please check out Ros' blog Sew Delicous, leave her a comment to let her know that you dropped by via Nanny Kate. Trust me, we bloggers absolutely squeal with delight when we get a new comment. Listen closely and you just might hear a funky mama squeal tonight.
