Enjoy my blog with me as I share my blessings of family cooking, sewing, crafts, vintage collections, pets and chicken keeping. Little Susie Home Maker is a nick-name lovingly given to me by my husband! I love to learn new things that I can use to make home life a happier experience. I would love to hear from you. Blogging is a lot more fun with friends!
Good evening everyone! It is time to reveal the Dotty Swap between myself and Mom Wald's Place. Back in January our lovely hostess, Holly from Cutie Pie Cottage organized a most wonderful swap. She wanted to hold her very first Dotty Swap. It was a great idea and many responded.
Mary, packed me the prettiest 3 packages in the cutest red and pink dotty tissue.
The first package that I opened had this pretty little refrigerator notepad with this wide-eyed owl on it.
And Mary wrote this kind little note. She included a yummy little box of Jelly Bellies!
The second little package had the most precious little hand made clutch in it!
Look at the pretty fabric, different shades of pink and green dots, with tiny kittens and flowers, also in bright green shades! The inside lining is a light green with white dots.
Mary hand quilted these layers together with many brightly colored embroidery floss circles, or dots! The little flap is held together with tiny snaps. I can't wait to use this! It is such a handy size, and ready for Spring time!
On to the third package.. That is Harley there on the table having fun discovering what is inside. He is curious! Yes this is so exciting...
It is the prettiest hand embroidered linen towel. Look at the little saucer with red polka dots! Oh, my it is tumbling around, dots are all around the towel! Doesn't it look happy!
Look how pretty all of this is. I am just so happy! The linen towel is so pretty, too It has such a pretty edge and embossed floral, that is hard to see in the picture. Mary did the most delicate stitching. The red will be perfect with all my kitchen accessories. I think I may use it as a table center topper for the dining room.
This picture is sideways, I don't know why, because when I transfer it from the computer, it is not.. so look sideways..
This is my Harley, he is always in the middle of all my crafting, so he was interested in what Mary sent as well.
Here is another close up of the pretty tea cup stitching...
Mary you have been a wonderful partner in this swap. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into these beautiful exchange of gifts!
I pray that Mary likes the Dots I sent her as much as I will enjoy mine!
