I've kinda been lost inside my own little world for the last couple of weeks. Keeping to myself and just busy doing crafts. It's time to join the world again though!
I participated in Jessica's Pretty Pockets Swap and my partner was my new friend Bridget Renea. We hit it off immediately! Here is the Pretty Pockets that Bridget sent to me. She used a variety of fabrics, which I love, and even included some western fabric in there. I didn't get a picture of it, but there is a horse charm hanging with the ric rac. I'm going to put this on one of my doors and put pretty things in it for everyone to see.
Bridget also filled the pockets with a ton of goodies. She sent scrapbook stuff, little notepads, paperclips, and I love the photo of the woman on bikes. I'm going to get that framed and hang it up.
She also sent lace and fibers, candles, yo-yo's, vintage hankies and buttons, a tape measure and more buttons.
Here's the Pretty Pockets that I sent to Bridget Renea.
I added a crocheted flower, quilted heart, a lace flower and a couple of vintage lace doiles. I also crocheted a cover for the wooden hanger out of crochet thread.
This is a banner I made for Bridget and this is her photo of it hanging up next to her really cool headboard.
I made her an Uncle Sam and some other patriotic stuff
and then some French type stuff. I had a plaque that I had gotten on line and then I crocheted and embellished the other picute.
