Think Spring Swap - Ready to go

I had a hard time trying to decide what to put into the package for my Think Spring Swap recipient because she doesn't have a blog. This means I have no way of peeking into her life and seeing what she does or likes or what colors she decorates with. So I decided to go with a variety of little things that I thought looked Spring-like, and I hope I hit on at least one or two things that she likes. So here it is...

Think Spring Swap GiftFirst of all, wrapped up in a generous length of green satin ribbon, are two of my crocheted dishcloths. The yellow one can be seen in progress in this video showing how to do the Tunisian Short Row Dishcloth. The blue one is the Tunisian Crochet Mystery Project referred to HERE.

I've included one of the little tea wallets I made which are just great for neatly carrying tea or other little things in your purse or brief case or school bag.

A collection of spring-y yo-yos, 3 iron-on patches, a spool of blue flowered ribbon, a selection of spring shades of DMC embroidery floss and a skein of spring yellow baby yarn round out the soft items included in the gift.

I put together a beaded zipper pull in pinks and yellows with little silver hearts, and have also included a little sunflower growing kit, a pocket size photo album that holds wallet size photos, and a package of cheerful flowered note cards.

Do you think all of this will fit into the pretty flowered gift bag with the pink butterfly on it? We'll see! I hope she likes it!

Happy Stitching!

  • Hi Mary Grace,
    I've been very busy and not had much time to visit blogs lately. I'm here to say that if that Spring Swap were coming my way, I would be thrilled. What cute stuff and it just says "Sunshine"!!!! I am sure your swap partner will love it!! You do so many fun yarn projects. If only I could knit or crochet. Then again, I can't find time to finish my quilting and penny rug projects so where do I think I would find time to knit and crochet!! LOL!! :-)

  • What a beautiful spring gift package -- especially with the gorgeous handmade goodies - I'm sure your swap partner will be thrilled!

    I keep seeing such gorgeous handmade (knit or crochet) dishcloths - I'm tempted to learn how to knit just so I can make some of those for gifts, lol!
