About this time last year I took part in my first ever swap, organised by Rachel at House of Pinheiro and Charlotte at Sew Far Sew Good. It was a pin cushion swap and you can read about it here. This years theme was 'nautical' and a given colour scheme of red white and blue. I was paired up with Daisy who runs Flo & Co Cakes a rather scrummy looking cupcakery in Bath. After swapping emails and telling each other a bit more about ourselves, in order for us to have some inspiration of what to make, I made my decision - a tea cosy.
My return package was just as lovely, although silly postman delivered it to next door by accident! Made from some lovely nautical inspired fabric I had two hanging hearts, that immediately went up in the alcoves on my fireplace. My little extra present was spotty paper chains - perfect accessory to my Tea Party Box (yes, I actually have a box full of teapots, cake stands, crockery, paper doilies etc) just now need an excuse to throw a tea party!
A big thank you to Rachel at House of Pinheiro for organising such a fab swap!
