Handmade Heart Swap........

Hello there,did you all have a good weekend ? We actually had a bit of sunshine, here in the Midlands. My garden is a little sun trap so I made the most of it and took my knitting outside, soaking up some much needed Vitamin D and just relaxing, I love those sort of days , doesn't a bit of sun make you feel so much better ?
Last month, Mary Poppins organised a Handmade Heart Swap, I love doing swaps, so I put my name down as soon I saw it. My swap partner was Sarah from Home to Roost, I'm so glad we put together, we corresponded through Twitter, she is so funny and made me chuckle a few times. She is also very talented and dabbles in a few crafts. Here are the gorgeous handmade goodies she made for me.

Isn't this little hand embroidered bag gorgeous, such a talented lady.

A knitted heart keyring, this is going to adorn my knitting bag, it's so sweet.

This is a little hand warmer and the weather we've been having lately, will come in very handy.

A thrifted sewn heart, I love this fabric, look at the cute ladybirds.

Lastly, was a knitted dishcloth, can you see the heart. Sarah, said it's for posh dishes but this is far to lovely for washing dishes so I'm going to use it as a face cloth.

I've had so much fun with this swap, thank you so much to Mary, who organised this great swap and I'll be looking out for any more she does in the future.
You can take a look on Flickr, at all the other swaps that have taken place.
