We emailed a few time, I stalked her blog, her pins and her IG feed, and this is what I came up with,,,,
There was so many cute "Cherry" ideas, I wanted to make them all!! I hand pieced and quilted the table topper. She loves hexies too, so I made a few coasters, and one might need a mug rug with a sweet vintage embroidered birdie in a cherry tree, you never know!! She recently moved to a new place, so I thought a bright cherry tea towel was in order,,,,,,so you can see I had a LOT of fun making this swap package. Then, because Kristen is the awesome stitcher she is, I thought she might like a project book to tote her "on the go" items around with her.
This is what I received!!!!
That pincushion, aaaah too cute, hoop art with a beautifully stitched K and a mini cherry brooch, Love it all so much.
She even stitched on a hexie of the zippy pouch!!
Cute flower hexies on the book bag tote,,, which I have already put to use,,,carrying my "on the go" knitting supplies around!!
This was such a fun swap, I'm a little sad it's over. But I met a super new friend,, we both had fun creating cherry-licious goodies, and we were both very happy with our gifts. Pop on over and say hi to Kristen, check out her fun tutorials, or if you would like a cherry brooch of your own she sells them in her Etsy Shop!!
I can't believe it's October already,,,can you!! Maybe something a little fall-ish next time.
The project book was made using Comfortstitching's-ProjectBookPouch pattern on Etsy with a few of my own moderations.
