House Ornament Swap

Kirsty from Four Happy Violets organised this pretty House Ornament Swap using a pattern from Retro Mama.  

My partner Angie sent me this beautiful stitched little cottage

with a little embroidered message on the reverse.

And some truly tasty chocolates, from Germany and the US.  I just loved the raspberry soft centre, oh and the caramel too!  Thank you Angie for your kindness. 


 and my little cottage to Angie with some embroidered flower tubs on the reverse. 

Thank you Kirsty for organising this swap - I thoroughly enjoyed spending a thoughtful afternoon making this little house.


Sorry I've been absent for a while - my head has been all over the place and my creativity fell into a black hole.  The British weather has suddenly changed into a bright, but still quite chilly, spring-like few days.  Oh, we all needed that!  I'm starting to feel like my old self again.  Thank you all for your kind messages xxx
