A huge part of the fun of GDITC is catching up with friends and making new ones.
There were two swaps that were being held over the weekend and I managed to organise something for both of them.
Firstly Chooky's swap on Friday night - Make it, Bake it or Fake it
I faked it and the lovely Kez got my gift.
It was the first time I had met Kez and we hit it off immediately.
I received this fantastic light with it's own pretty carry bag from the lovely Janice.
Looking around at all the lovely gifts, I was feeling so grateful to be in the company of such generous ladies. All the gifts were beautiful and everyone had put so much thought into them.
Kerry also organised a swap with Lynette sharing a cute little needle case.
I was planning on making the needle case but just couldn't manage to get my act together and the instructions did say that we could turn it into anything we liked.
So instead of missing out on the swap I turned my stitchery into this......
I'm not sure who received my gift on the day, I hope they liked it.
I received this cute pincushion
I couldn't believe it when I read the card inside and it was made by the lovely Janice.
I received both of her swap gifts - Thank you Janice, I love them both.
Looking around the hall that day, there were so many beautiful in interpretations of Lynette's design. It is just so inspiring to be around such creative ladies.
I also purchased a few items from 'Pickles on Peisley' made by the lovely Kate.
We have tried them all and they are sooo yummy, thanks Kate.
Until Next Time
Happy Stitching xox
