My Makes for the Tilda Swap

Hello lovely bloggers. I received a lovely e-mail from my American swap partner (Mama Bug) today, to say that the Tilda swap I made for her had arrived safely, and I'm pleased to say she liked it. I'm sure Kate would have received her swap parcel by now too, so I thought I'd should you all what I sent.  

As the Tilda swap was Springtime related, I decided on a gardening theme for my parcels. So I made these two garden angels from the Sew Pretty Homestyle book by Tone Finnanger.
The blue angel is for Mama Bug and the green for Kate.






Here's a couple of pics of the other goodies I sent. The top pic is Kate's and the pic below is Mama Bugs. You can see what Mama Bug sent me by clicking here.

I put in Sally Snail for Mama Bug too as she's wanted one for ages.
I have really enjoyed sewing these, and enjoying the fact the sewing bug has hit me big style, my sewing mojo has definitely been found. I'm now in the process of making the bag from  Sew! by Cath Kidston. Not sure how it will turn out, but I won't know until I try.

I hope everyone who took part in the Tilda Spring Swap enjoyed it, and you've all received some lovely goodies in the post. I hope to do another swap in the not too distant future, I'll keep you posted.

I'd  like to say a big thank you to Emma from Mimi and Tilly for letting me know how to do the signature thing at the bottom of my posts :o)

Well, my bed is calling so I'll say nighty Night Peeps.

Your angels are gorgeous! I started making one a couple of days ago. It's the first time I've sewn anything from a pattern. I usually just tend to wing it (do you see what I did there?). I'm using fabrics I have around the house, and have given her big ole plaits. Every time I look at her she makes me smile!
