Thanks to the designers who generously shared ideas and designs with the swap participants!
I used only one of the offered designs, designed by my dear friend May Britt.
I had learned that my swap recipient Claire is very fond of blue, so a blue drawstring bag was made.
I sent this one as a separate packet and I had a good time friendly teasing Claire through mails from an email address that does not give away my name :-)
The next gift is a cover for notepad and pen, and I always have one close to me, to scribble down ideas, appointments, shopping lists and all.
The stitchery design is designed by Bronwyn Hayes, one of my favourite designers, and I found it in the Australian magazine Homespun.
I just had to do some red stitchery, to add my thumb print so to say :-)
The binding and the rest of the cover is deep blue.
I also learned by reading Claire's blog that she is very fond of Tilda designs.
Tilda is Norwegian, so it was a double appropriate gift then :-)
Tilda's designs are very cute if I may say so.
The blue purple variegated thread was to good to pass too.
Norwegian chocolate is also mandatory :-)
I am very happy to read that Claire is very happy about her gifts. It was fun to make presents for you !!
