Potholder Pass 5

This time the swap is for 2 Christmas potholders and a handmade ornament.  My partner asked for bright and modern.  I enjoyed making the decoration - I modified a design from the current "Handmade" magazine - felt and beading.  Hope my partner can find a spot on her Christmas tree for these little birdies.  They will be winging their way overseas on Monday.

F-R-I-E-N-D-S Swap

My swap partner Dorine in the Netherlands has now received her parcel from me so I can reveal what I sent her here now.
F - Furry friends chocolate (and Caramello koalas)
R - Redwork rabbits and red pin cushion
I - Icons of Aust (softie kangaroo, koala, vegemite) in Aussie bag
E - Embroidered heart sachet
N - Needles for her Bernina sewing machine
D - Doll - Matroyshka doll (Rosalie Quinlan design)
S - Spinner - bamboo wind spiral.

I had fun putting this package together especially trying to send some Aussie things.  Khris from Sew Prim Khris organised this swap.
