Button Swap

A while ago I joined in a button swap over at Felling Stitchy.

I had never mad buttons before so thought it would be fun to have a go.

I was partnered with Sarah of My Spare Time, who is a wonderful crafter & quilter.

She sent me the most wonderful parcel filled with lovely goodies all the way from ….

Yes all the way from Texas USA, what a long way to come.
Here are the beautiful buttons Sarah sent me; they are wonderful and so beautifully embroidered.

Sarah also sent me some wonderful fabric & embroidery silks, I do think there are some truly wonderful fabrics in the US that we just don’t have over here.

Some YUMMY sweets that I actually ate before I got to my camera sorry they were amazing. Some Hershey eggs & an amazing chocolate bar which was raspberry, lemon & biscotti truffle, mmmmmmmmm.

As you can see I ate the cololate bar as I took my photos!!!
I hope Sarah liked the buttons I sent her, as I said I had never made buttons before so I hope they are up to standard.
Thanks Sarah for a wonderful Swap.

I am sure your buttons will be very accetable, the things you sewed me in our swap were very well made...your lovely embroidered buttons would look so good on a dark denim jacket, aren't they beautiful.

Lovely parcel! I went to a discount fabric store that just happened to be opposite our hotel in Boston last year (how unfortunate...;0)) and yes, they do have lots more interesting fabrics over there than we do here, and I came home with a bagful + trimmings....
