… my first swap

love circle swap pillow

we did a little exchange amongst the members of the love circle of do. good stitches and i just received the goods from my first swap ever. yay!

elizabeth stitched up this lovely pillow cover for me and i'm so tickled by it. it fits in perfectly in my new sewing room, with its pink walls and yellow shelves. when i opened the package my husband was looking over my shoulder and said, "wow, how did she know those are your favorite colors?" well, i did specify that i love pink, blue and yellow, but it is amazing how me this pillow is.

love circle swap package!

and she also sent along this adorable card and a whole bunch of 2-1/2" charms. who doesnt love charm squares? so sweet!

and it goes especially well with this pillow i made a couple of years ago. don't they look right at home together in my cozy sewing room chair?

and now [gulp] i should probably finish up what i'm making for the swap and mail it off by friday. eep!
