I signed up to a Heart Swap organised by MollyCupCakes.
The idea was that you send your partner at least 6 "heart" objects, at least one of which had to be handmade.
My partner was BekisBloggyBits.
After stalking her blog to get an idea of her possible likes and dislikes, I settled on making a little wall-hanging using TallGrassPrairieStudios's "Be Still My Heart" tutorial.
In backed the hanging in just squares.
I was undecided if, or how, I should quilt it but at the last second decided on a heart shaped spiral.
I really liked how it turned out and I plan to make a few more.
I also made Beki a little heart shaped hanging - again in the pink and green stripes.
For the other heart items, I send a few lengths of ribbon, a cookie cutter, some fleece, some buttons and a packet of "Love Heart" sweets.
In return I received a gorgeous bundle of goodies from Beki.
There was a tote bag (which will great for out shopping), an ice-cube tray, heart shaped head pins, a packet of "Love Heart" sweets (lol!!), a little notepad, a gorgeous little magnet, and to finish it off a fabulous heart shaped hanging made from red buttons.
It must have taken her ages to thread them all onto the wire. I just need to find the right place to hang it to show it off.
I really enjoyed this swap.
