A hint of Spring

I recently took part in a Spring ATC swap organised by the lovely Penny of The Linen Shelf
I used a combination of seed packets netting and ribbon, sewn together and finished with a fabric flower.
I couldn't resist adding some butterflies to a few of them!
the flip side
and this loveliness arrived in return!
what a gorgeous combination of flowers, birds and Spring things!
thank you all so much!
Penny's gorgeous little bird and lace mix complete with it's own handmade packet
Sabrina also had birds on her mind with the 'privilege of song'
birds, buttons and Ric Rac from oogleblops
Annie's ATC is so delicate, beauitful colours and texture
Jo from Fiddlesnips with birdsong and tiny Dragonflies
Posted by PicasaMy special thanks to Penny for hosting this delightful swap!

This was a lovely swap, wasn't it?! I got one of the butterfly ATC's you created - the one on the far right in your photo - I love it (it's here with me as I type). I really like all the textures and materials used.

Hi Margaret! I received one of your pieces in the swap. It looks like the one in the top-right of your photo. I really like it, especially the way you used the netting. Wonderful blog site too! Sabrina

It's a pleasure Margaret. This swap didn't go as well as others but we got some lovely results.
