This morning I put the final touches on the tote I made for my mouthy stitches partner…
I had so much fun planning and making this. I’d forgotten how much I love doing swaps… The excitement and thrill of making something secretively for a person who understands and loves handmade.
Yes the thrill for me is definitely more in the making than the receiving.
I just hope my partner likes what I’ve made for her. There is always that small niggle of insecurity that they won’t. But she commented positively on my progress shot so I suspect this is right up her alley.
See the hand stitching? I’m really quite proud of that. Because it’s the first official hand embellished item I’ve made.
And I even liked the process.
Will this be the start of something new? Hmmm…. Perhaps.
But let’s not count our chickens…
