Swap Gifts...All Orange, All The Time!! :)

Beautiful beaded flower, trivet, sachet, handspun yarn and cosmetic case from my friend, Kelly.

 


Close up of her beading and handmade cloth button.

 


Fabu journal, purse fob, brooch and special honey from my friend, Tracy.
(There were two additional Perthshire 'food gifts', as well, but my daughters and I ate them up before I could snap a photo!)

 


I especially love the striated red and orange bead!

 


As you may know from reading some of my other posts...

...I think felt and fiber artists are just the best people, ever!

Recently, I was lucky enough to arrange individual swaps...

...with two extremely lovely and talented feltmakers.

My friend Kelly is the author of "Felting Sunshine"...

...and a fellow orange lover!!

Tracy is a Scottish feltmaker...

...who writes the blog "narkeymarkey".

As you can see...

...they indulged me by making all of my gifts in my favorite color!!

Thank you both from the bottom of my heart...

...I will think of you with happiness each time I use one of my wonderful presents!
