It's About Time!

I got word from my partner that she received my swap package today in the It's About Time swap, hosted by Mary (thank you, Mary!) and she really enjoyed it. I'm so glad! It was my first-ever swap!

Here are some photos of what I sent, to go along with the theme of time -- clocks, numbers, letters -- and in keeping with things my partner said she loves:

a button collage, with samples from my collection,
sewn onto an antique white double damask napkin;

some ribbon and lace on tags;

some paper things she likes, like postcards and seed packets;

some pretty things in her colors;

and an antique sewing machine drawer with sewing notions, linens, and one of my pillows:

I had the time of my life putting the package together for her -- it's all shabby and vintage and everything I love. How wonderful to find someone who loves it as much as I do! I'm waiting to receive my package from her; I just know I'm going to love it!
