Chookyblue’s SCCS 2010 – Surprises Revealed!…

Finally…after staring at the pretty wrapped parcels for SO long yesterday was the day…the day we all got to open our Chookyblue SCCS 2010 presents…YAY!!!!…

My present travelled across the globe from Norway…Anne Heidi sent me the most beautiful presents…and since that is very close to Father Christmas land he insisted on showing you himself…

A lovely handbag…a pincushion…a gorgeous Norwegian button…and a packet of skiing charms (to my mind very Nordic)…

The handbag is the most perfect size and will be going to Summer School with me in a couple of weeks time…

The pincushion is from my favourite Leanne’s House pincushion pattern and Anne Heidi has made it in the same fabric as the sample on the pattern packet…

Thank you so much Anne Heidi, I love everything.

And to continue with the Scandanavian theme for the swap I sent to Sweden…

For Marica I made…

…a few sewing items…a pincushion…a needlebook…a rotary cutter pouch…and a scissor keep…of course the scissor keep needed a pair of pretty pink embroidery scissors and the needlebook some needles and the pincushion some pins…and of course, no-one should be expected to sew without chocolate!…

I started with a pincusion pattern from Leanne’s House (coincidentally the same pattern packet that Anne Heidi used for my present!) and once that was made the project kind of took on a life of its own…and the butterfly stitchery was repeated on the other items which I made up as I went along…the bucket bag? well, I figured the items needed somewhere to live and a bucket bag just seemed to fit the bill so I made one of those up as well..

And of course…a huge thank you must go to Chookyblue her very self for once again giving us bloggers the opportunity to play along with this swap…

Happy Stitching….
