Made With Love

When I arrived home Wednesday, the mail carrier had brought me a package from Portugal. It was my July Color-iffic Swap-o-rama!

My partner in this secret swap was Sara (MadeWithLove on flickr.com). She must have spent a lot of time and care selecting and making these wonderful items. I am so grateful for the loving attention she paid to every little detail.

I’m impressed with her creative and endearing sewn toys. They’re truly “made with Love.” Her stitches are so nice and even; I resolve to take more care when I do my next hand-stitched project! Such personality in their faces.

The cat I’ve christened “Scott” because I love animals with people names. She wrote that he could be my pet now, and he wouldn’t give my husband Ryan allergies. She definitely did her homework, that one!

Sara also included a pretty button bracelet and great cards. Even my first two trading cards ever. I’ve always admired those! I think the seed pods and wood are her original photos.

Thank you, Sara!

  2. That cat design is really fun! I’m sure you are quite happy with it.

  3. I’m glad you got as great a package as you sent ^_^
