Swaps are great fun and I always thoroughly enjoy them - stalking the recipients blogs, finding out about them, working at the parcel, hoping they love it at least half as much as I did putting it together...
I've really limited the number of swaps I've participated in this year - I think I've done one? two? Not sure but not many! One was Leonie's International Dishcloth Swap, a secret swap in which you didn't know who was sending a package to you!
Tracy from Mad About Bags who lives in the UK - her favorite colour is green, but her kitchen is red (from what I could tell from the blog-stalking!) I knew I wanted to give these awesome dotty cloths a go and love this gorgeous design from Louana, so choosing colours and designs was easy : )
The package also included a few other goodies, things that I thought she might like based on what I'd read on her blog. Buttons, woollen yarn, a pretty pouch, lollipops, a couple of fat quarters, some buttons, yummy soap and a wee necklace that I made with some fabric, mod-podge and bits of an old deconstructed necklace. Fun!
I also received my dishcloths from Treena-Marie in the last week or two. Thanks Treena!
I have some cotton left so will be making a few more dishcloths... perhaps a colourful rainbow dot one? Am super keen to have another go at the dots!
Are you a fan of cotton dishcloths? Seen any great designs?
Hope you're all having a good start to the shorter week!
