The International Craft Swap – the Surprise has arrived!

In February I have joined the International Craft Swap organised by Rachel from the House of Pinheiro.

The International Craft Swap– the surprise has arrived!

The rules set up by Rachel  – The theme: Nautical; and we could let our imagination loose and make anything we fancy, inc. only using the colour reference: Blue/White/Red.

I was paired with Diane Hudson from margueritedesigns.

I have just got the swap surprise on Friday.

Included in a set is a measure tape with cm and inch – it will be easer now to find correct pattern on this vintage patterns where they use only inches…
