Mini Swap .....

I have enjoyed participating (when I can) in mini swaps hosted by Cheryll

The mini can be hung on a stand or on a little hanger and is about 12" square....

We have just swapped "Mother's Day" mini hangers.... here in Australia Mothers Day will be celebrated on Sunday May 12th...

My 'secret swappie' was Lyn from New Zealand and I made this little one....


I found the words somewhere around on the internet and thought they were fitting for the occasion.... and added matching buttons.... and some wriggly quilting on the background....


The pattern was based on a block found in the Magazine designed by Marg Low.... I made quite  a few changes to fit the size block I wanted but her design is the base and the inspiration...

... and of course I couldn't resist another of Michelle's alphabet letters which I sewed in colours to match


If you fancy joining in with the mini swap sometime have a look over here what it's all about... 

Righto, Gotto Go...... I'm listening to Kate Morton (The Secret Keeper) on disk whilst I blanket stitch....

  19. You have stitched a lovely Mini for Lyn and also her special letter...
    The first time I saw those beautiful words was a stitchery our eldest member (now 90) of our Patch Group, stitched them on a mini...
