What Goes Out, Must Come In…

...or something like that!
While I have been getting swap items made and posted, they have also been arriving in my letterbox.

I was in the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap and these arrived from Leah (Smoochee on Flickr).
I just found another great use for chalkboard fabric!

Leah sent me an amazing and varied amount of swap fabrics and I can’t wait to get playing with them…lots ofwonderful things to make on the flickr swap page, if you are looking for some new ideas!

Another fantastic swap was the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap #5. Here is what came my way…an absolutely gorgeous crochet creation – it combines 2 of my favourite things: books and crochet.

It’s from Carol Ray who is a fibre artist from Southern Iowa here is a link to the Iowa Studio Tour…if you’re from that way you might pop in and say I said hi!

This isn’t from a swap, just a lack of will–power!

But really…what would you do if you were confronted by Denyse Schmidt fabrics at $6.00 per metre?…

…or a bit of text fabric that grabbed your attention?..

…and I really needed a 60 degree ruler (at 30% off)…but the reason for that will have to be explained in another blog post!

thanks for taking a peek over the fence…
