A couple of days ago I received an email from Sandi, my swap partner, to tell me that she had received my parcel and to thank me for it. Sandi said that she was going to post about it on her blog but hasn’t been able to because she’s been feeling under the weather lately, so in the interim, I’ll give you a peek instead.
In the background is a tote bag made of recyclable products produced and distributed by our local newspaper, The Review. The photos appearing on the bag are actual photos of some of the red brick houses that our town is noted for.
Just ahead of that on the left side is the pincushion I made for Sandi. It is fashioned to look like a dressmakers form and it was fun to make and embellish. To the right of the pincushion is a notion box that I designed and painted and leaning on the notion box is a package of Jeana Kimball needles.
In the foreground on the left is a pair of socks that I knit last winter and sitting on top of the socks is a scissor fob that I made. I also included a package of rainbow colored pins and some note cards and a journal by Mary Engelbreit. And last but certainly not least, a refrigerator magnet with the Canadian flag.
