I had intended to get started on altering my Altoids tin for the button swap but ended up playing with the buttons I had collected for it instead. The pile of pink charm squares are from the USA and were included in a swap I recently did. Planning on joining them altogther and making a sheet of fabric and then cutting a little patchwork dress out for the dress a child appeal. The dark christmas tree fabric is left over from cutting out 56 5" squares for a christmas material swap have entered into. Took absolutely ages and then I had to iron em all and get them all posted off by yesterday.
I will eventually receive 56 squares back of 28 different fabrics which I have plans on using for a project I have up my sleeve. Some friendly plastic strips I still havn't used yet and a knitting pattern that I downloaded to make another knitty for the christmas box child appeal. Carol was the first to spot my un deliberate mistake on Mr Elephants foot/paw and said as she didn't want a prezzie would I make something else to send off to include in the boxes.
A lot of people have commented on my sewing machine cover. I did not make this. Again it was a swap that I entered . My cover went off to America and this is the one I received. My partner knew me well to make it in pink!.
If you want to have a good old snoop on some more desks pop on over to Julia's blog. There will be lots to see. Happy snooping.
