Springtime Tilda Swap

Well ladies thanks to all those who participated in my little poll, to see who'd be interested in doing a Springtime Tilda swap. I had quite a few of you lovely bloggers who said they'd like to give it a shot, so here goes.

The Rules

Your Tilda item should be from one of the following books:-
  • Sew Sunny Homestyle
  • Sew Pretty Homestyle
  • Crafting Springtime Gifts
  • Tilda's Summer ideas

I've chosen these Tilda books as they have some lovely spring/summer colours and some totally Delicious things to make in them . If you'd like to take part in the swap, please leave a comment at the end of this post. The last day for entering the swap will be 23rd Feb, with your swap parcel aiming to reach your partner by 31st March. Once I have all your names I'll pop them in a hat and pair you up. I'm really looking forward to it, should be great fun. If you'd like to, please copy the Tilda Swap pic at the top of this post for your blog, you never know we may get lots more joining in the fun.

So what have I been up to today? Well.......it seems I've gone potty over Provence rose, as out came the PVA and napkins again and I covered this terracotta pot with my spring flowers in. I think if hubby stayed still long enough I'd probably cover him too......Thanks to all those who left a comment on my last post, I'm glad I inspired some of you to get cutting and sticking.

The remains of the day have been spent dusting. Here's a couple of pics of the dining room after dusting. It looks much fresher and cleaner in there now........ I'm really pleased with the frames from the Range that my sketches are in. I need to get on and do a sketch of Beau now to complete the set.

I've also sorted out loads of home mags this afternoon. I like to go through and cut bits out for my inspiration files, and the others have been boxed up ready for a car booty once the weathers warmer and drier.
I have received a couple of awards this week too :o), so expect I'll do a post about that tomorrow.

I would really like to do the swap as I just found you and Tilda! I also just ordered two of those books!!! Can't wait for them to arrive. I live in the US though, so if that won't work for swap purposes that is fine....I have no idea how much overseas packages go for as I have never done it. Please let me know if I may join in!
