Cracker Swap

I recently took part in Lisa's New Year Cracker swap.
The idea was to make a cracker and fill with fabric and
and other haberdashery items.
I have been paired up with Cat from Catalina's Cottage
and here is the cracker that I have put together for her.


and then...

inside the crackers are
8 embroidery threads
7 ribbons
small pack of shabby buttons

Cat love's red, pink and aqua so I have tried to work on those
colours, hope you like them Cat :o)

Thankyou Lisa for hosting this swap, it has been loads of fun!

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Crafting!

Wow look what came in the post!

Hi everyone
Lisa from My Little Creative Wonderland hosted a
New Year cracker swap and I was very fortunate to have been
paired up the Cat from Catalina's Cottage

Cat has sent me the most amazing Cracker, it is huge!

now before I show you what is inside, I have to show you the tea towel
it is all wrapped up in, it is so me as I am a big drama queen
and definately do need to be reminded to Calm down lol!

now for the fun part...what's inside?

2 gorgeous fat quarters
some ribbon and baker's twine
3 amazing crhristmas baubles
a collage kit "Ïn my Garden"
a heart stamp
and the most amazing book full of gorgeous patterns
for bags, stitcheries, appliqued items such as fabric buckets,
needle keeper, journal cover, and loads more.
Let me tell you I am having trouble putting this down!
It's called Pieces of Me by Janelle Wind.

oh and the baubles, I just found out were made by Tupperware,
inside each of them is a yummy packet of lollies
( I am so bad, I forget to add lollies...eeek, sorry Cat)

New Zealand made lollies! My daughter just ran off with the
pack of hearts!
Can you believe that Cat managed to get those packets
inside those baubles...amazing!
I am just so overwhelmed by this awesome package, thankyou
sooooo much Cat I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!!! and thanks too
to Lisa for hosting such an amazing swap :oD
