When Kat saw the outcomes of A Common Thread Project she wished she could be part of it too and decided to invite the girls of the Sewing Circle community to try to have a go. Load of us wanted to participate as its a bit obvious why, as the idea of getting something pretty in the mail from another crafty lady somewhere else in the world and then incorporating it into an outfit holds a lot of appeal.
Want to know how we did it? We all decided a deadline, agreed the size of the envelopes and off we went to send beautiful notions around the world.
The participants were: Charlotte P, Me, Debbie, Judy R, Kat, Charlotte T, Sarah, Cathe,Margueritedesigns, Shannon G, Jen, Deb, Meg, Corey, Mimi, Morgan H, Amanda. If I missed anyone, let me know.
Countries include: UK, USA, NZ,IT ,Australia and more.
You probably curious to see what I got:
|Grazie Morgan- Italian lace. I am a lucky girl !|
Here are my top 5 favourite projects completed: ( all were amazing- so hard to choose)
|My number one is of course my swap buddy Mimi. She made a beautiful blouse and Flower band|
|My number two is the always very elegant Cathe|
|Charlotte P looks amazing in her skirt|
|Judy, you always make me happy and your creations are so fun.|
