This will be my fourth swap, I have a proper little collection now, including this cute knitted one, a daffodil and this needlework one.

Summer ATC swap is here!

I’ve been waiting for this for ages, and it is finally here!  Very Berry Handmade is running her fourth fabric ATC swap, and I have signed up to take part. atc-swap-4-button2I took part in the second and third swaps (check out the cards I made here and here, and the amazing ones I have recieved here and here).  The theme is ‘Getting Away from it All’ – which apparently can be interpreted that however we like.

I have a couple of ideas already, but I’ll wait to find out my partners preferences before I commit to anything.  Based on past experience, I change my mind lots in the process of making anyway….!

I love getting post, and don’t get near enough these days.  When I do get post, it is usually bills.  When post is as lovely as this, I go into excitement meltdown!  My friend offered to send me some of this lovely fabric, which I’m going to use to make this Scottie dog doorstopblue retro fabric

Along with generous chunk of lovely fabric, she also sent me some sweet origami paper, teabags, buttons and stickers.

I’ve put together a return goodie bag, which I’ll share once I know she has received it in the post.  Let me know if you’d like to do a swap too – I just realised how much craft stuff I have lurking around!
