At last, at last at last...
With apologies to Mia, Anita, Henny and Monique here at last are the hearts from my first swap!!!
Anita's hearts all feature the word 'nostalgia' and a picture of the cutest little girl. It's pinks and peaches and very soft-toned.
Mia's heart is patchworked on both sides and in beautiful vintage/vintage-style fabrics in beige-peach-cream with a simple satin ribbon loop.
Monique and Henny's hearts were almost twins. Moniques has lovely lace and beadwork on it with a button and lace loop. It's backed with a small blue sprigged flower fabric.
and Henny's is blue and green with the embroidery thread in blue and white beads sewn on to look like flowers.
Mine were red gingham with felt applique. I have a very bright image of nostalgia. I don't do sepia photos either. Sorry.
And also today....
I got a parcel! From that Nice Mr Amazon. He really likes me because he always brings me things (usually after pay-day) and today he brought me;
I haven't even looked at it and I like it already. The cover is bright with something red on the front, the spine of the book has a pink flowery pattern all over it and the back of the book has a flickr-style mosaic on showing bags, clothes, dogs, slippers and more. I'm off shortly to shop but when I return I will be making a pot of Earl Grey, sitting down in front of Amelie and reading what may be my favourite book this week. Enjoy!
Finally, I issued an invitation and will repeat it now for a week. Would anybody like to take part in a bookmark swap? Make a bookmark, any style and swap it with me and/or anyone else? I've already got one taker (thank you Wendy, glad you're back)
