Round 2

I’ve joined round 2 of the Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap on Flickr. I’m excited about my partner because we seem to have very similar tastes. Hopefully I get the chance to start it this week. I seem to have a bunch of things I need to do!

Good morning star shine!

It was a beautiful day here today.  I would have liked to have spent more time outside.  I wish that my laptop screen was less reflective so I could sit outside and work.  Oh the hardships!

Today was the day that my package arrived from the Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap on Flickr.  I was overjoyed.  It is beautiful, absolutely my taste and the extra goodies just made it that much more special.  A giant thank you to SewKellySews for being so thoughtful and sending me something so wonderful!

I mentioned before that this was the first swap I’ve ever done, aside from a gift exchange on IAM and that’s different because well it’s IAM.  Anyway, it’s been really fun and I’m looking forward to participating in more swaps.  I love the giving more than the receiving (though I have to say it was great to be the receiver for this) so it’s really fun for me to try and come up with something that I hope my partner will love.

And here is the wonderful pouch in all its pouchy glory!

Pretty little pouch, done!

Well, I’ve finished my pouch for the Pretty “Little” Pouch Swap. I really hope my partner likes it. I’m quite nervous about that. This has been a lot of fun. Even just checking the group every day to see if anyone posted new photos and wondering if the person’s photo might be your stuff. I haven’t ever done a Flickr swap before but I’m definitely keen on being involved in another. If I had a little more confidence in my quilting skills (or could even hold a candle to the talent out there) I’d look for a doll quilt swap to join. Someday…

Here’s the pouch and fingers crossed it’s to my partner’s liking.

This is the tutorial I followed. It was my first time ever making this and it was actually pretty straight forward. There’s always a bit of a learning curve but I think it turned out ok.
