I've been swapping again!

After making 25 little matchboxes I told myself to take a break from swapping BUT then A Swap For All Seasons announced the next swap and I just had to participate! This time around we needed to create one fabric collage approximately 5x7. I had a ton of fun making mine for my swap partner!! So much fun that while I was making it, I wondered "hmm, would someone like this as a gift, cause I want to make everyone one!"

My swap partner Darlene from Blanche's Daughter created for me a fabric collage using some of my favorites, red buttons and a vintage photograph. Thank you Darlene, I love it! :-)


In return, I created for Darlene a collage using lots of blue and white/cream (her favorite colors) and attempted to make it look like altered art (something she enjoys making).

Hasn't this been a fun swap. Linda sure knows what she is doing. Both collages are wonderful.

Best,

Sarah, I found your blog by chance, but while I was here I browsed through your earlier entries. You've created a wonderful place for your readers to visit. I enjoyed the time I spent here and I will be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...MAry

Sarah - I'm very happy and excited to say that the wonderful fabric collage that you have made is mine, ALL MINE. It now has a home of honor in my studio. Thanks for being my partner.
