Sew…what did my swap partner send me?

I know that Christmas is over, but I thought you might like to see what my swap partner, Dawn of Positive Dawn, sent to me for the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ swap. The swap was organised by Tracy of Mad about Bags and the idea was to create 12 gifts that could be opened, 1 day at a time, for each of the 12 days after Christmas. Dawn made many of her gifts which included a tote bag large enough to fit the dog in! A button box for all my sewing threads, a coin purse, a little pouch made from the cutest Dalmatian themed material, and a quilted Christmas table runner.

My favourite gift was a little pin cushion with a lovely sheep design on the front – which as you can see, has been in permanent use ever since.

My collie, Pip, wasn’t left out as he received two new collars and a matching lead. Doesn’t he look smart?

I was also sent….. some lovely local chocolate, a notepad and pen (always useful), a lovely new decoration for my tree and some sewing notions (thread cutters and snippers).

It was great fun having something to open each day – even more so when you know how much effort has gone into each gift. A big thank you to Dawn for taking so much trouble to make my Christmas special and to Tracy for organising the swap. I will certainly look out for this swap again next year.

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....
