The other half of the Toadstool Swap

I received my toadstool from my swap partner, Wendy. It's gorgeous. My favourite colours and the little beaded butterfly is just so clever. I just wish I could wear it as jewellery!! I may look a little funny with a toadstool dangling from my neck so I'll just have to admire it sitting on my bedside table.

Thanks Wendy, it was a pleasure having you as my first ever swap partner. Oh and I pinched your photo as mine was pants!!!

The Toadstool Swap

At last it is finished and posted. Wendy if you're looking - turn away!!

I joined a Toadstool Swap organised by LucyKateCrafts. I didn't follow the tutorial exactly, but the general idea is there. I also didn't learn how to do blanket stitch until after I'd finished . . . .

The little mouse was a flash of inspiration. I thought to myself I wonder if the basic premise of a finger puppet - but stuffed - would work? I'm really quite chuffed with him.
And off it goes to the U S of A!! I hope you like it Wendy.
