Kitchen Swap

I took part in a Kitchen Swap back in March which was hosted by Jenny at Everyday is a holiday. My swap partner was Angie from Norththreads
I can't believe how much Angie has sent me, she is so generous.

The chenille sac was made by Angie. With the yummy pink and mint colours it proved irresistible and was commandeered by my daughter almost immediately and hangs pride of place in her room.

Hey Niki - look at that rag dolly - so that's where she ended up hmmm..... what else will I find in her room!

Included with everything is this lovely card with the sweet verse:-
Patterns of friendship- stitched with kindness, lined with understanding,hemmed with patience,trimmed with laughter.
There are some lovely candy coloured textiles here in the shape of pot holders, pinnies and an embroidered bag holder. Plenty of sewing notions to keep me busy, and a collection of kitchen linens too!
This sweet embroidered piece of linen with a Crinoline lady on is going to be made into a lavender filled cushion straight away.

A great collection of kitchenalia, including a vintage US cup measure ( I have always wanted one of those and it will sort out some of my US recipe's) and this handy cake sieve which I have never seen before. Can't wait to use it.


2 adorable tins that fit in very well in my workroom
Many of the participants for this swap have added their pics to the kitchen swap flickr on Everyday is a holiday blog.

I am itching to show you what I sent out, but Angie has not received it yet.:( I'm always the last one at the party!!

I have a pic in the side bar of an ice cream cone .... I wonder what that's for ? Here's another taster - yes I know its a heart - yes I like my twinkle hearts but it is kitchen related I promise.
