Gone to seed!

My goodness are things getting that desperate!?   She has finally gone to seed??

Well only in this way I think...

Yes I have been carving more stamps and have printed them in Eggplant this time!   Maybe I should try them out in some other colours  - something warmer, more autumnal!?

Most of us have sent off our gift to our partner in the Stamp it Up Swap!   Several of us have already received - including me!

Yes!  Yipee!

I got a stripey linen pouch - using a pattern I've not seen around before - a pleated pouch stamped with a cute Art Nouveau inspired ivy stamp!  Completed with a lovely button.

This is what is hiding inside - some Lu Summers fabric to continue the lovely botanical theme.

How did Fiona know I love Art Nouveau?   And I actually have lots of different ivy plants in my garden.   How appropriate is that?  

There were also some yummy scraps enclosed even though extras were not permitted - not giving them back now though!  Thanks so much Fiona!

I am plotting what to keep safely in my new pouch.  I love using pouches from friends for storing sewing things and for transporting them while I stitch and travel - it makes me feel a little bit connected to the stitching online community!
