Spring Sewing Swap

I don't think I mentioned that I signed up for the Spring Sewing Swap hosted by Kerry. It was my first time taking part and when I saw the post I knew that I had to take part immediately. I mean, who wouldn't want a parcel arriving with goodies that you know you'll love but will be a surprise at the same time? I was paired up with Hazel at Disaster in a Dress. I hadn't come across Hazel's creations before - another excellent reason for signing up! I've been hooked on Hazel's love for interesting fabrics ever since. The idea of the swap is to buy sewing related items for your partner, up to £15 in value in 3 to 5 items. After a few weeks after we began sending emails a parcel arrived. Look at the pretty ribbons!

Inside contained some wonderful items. Two meters of this lovely print that is summery and a little different to what I normally use.

Hazel had included a zip, thread and buttons that would match - essentially all the things I need to make an item. How great is that? I'm tempted to make a top out of this but have yet to decide on the pattern. I love the lace as well and will be saving that for the perfect project.

And then I found these: vintage patterns from Hazel's collection. They aren't too far off my size so will definitely try them, they have been added to the list of things to make.

I'm really pleased with my goodies. Thanks Hazel for choosing so well and to Kerry for hosting.
