More from the fabric heart themed swap!
Just a few days later, the second swap group of 3 inchies arrived:
Lisa H.'s square in felt with beautiful embroidery
Lisa S.'s is so elegant and soft in white
Jeanelle's, in lace from an antique collar, wool felt, buttons...
and a very cute key
Linda's has many hearts in different textures, all bright
Tamatha somehow managed 9 tiny, intricately detailed squares on each 3 inchie!
Hope said she immediately envisioned this "Polly Pocket" style creation when she decided to join the swap:
and it turned out beautifully -- so original!
Here's my humble contribution to the second swap:
another multi-layered square onto which I stitched a favorite piece of vintage pink crochet ribbon and a heart cut from a vintage necktie, and then hand stitched in pink and white around it.
There were more lovely gifts to spoil me!
Best of all, the generous swappers each made an extra inchie to send to cheer a friend whose health prevented her from joining in the fun this time.
I made this card from paper and fabric to go with it; it was so much FUN to spread the joy!
Here they all are (including two extras -- my "trial run" inchies)
I haven't yet decided what to do with mine...
but I can't wait to do so, and get started!
