Super Swaps ....

I've taken part in two bloggy swaps this year so far.
I want to share with you the gorgeous gifts I've been lucky enough to receive
& the lovely people who sent the to me !
So here we go !

First up was the Sweet Pouch Swap organised by the lovely Ros at Sew Delicious.
You might remember my offering here !

My swapper was the Sweetest!
Her name is Jacqueline and she hangs out over at 'From Out Of The Chaos'
and she sent me a fab package full of goodies & a beautiful purple quilted pouch !
I just LOVE her colour combinations & fabric choices !

Yes! I'd obviously scoffed all the yummy sweets by the time I took the photo ! (I had some help !)
Besides the sweets, a key fob, a funky pen & note-lets part of her gift to me was some lovely scraps from her stash.

My daughter Lorna put one to good use in an invitation illustration for a 'Mother & Daughter Afternoon Tea' event, fundraising money for Marymount hospice, Cork.
This is what she did with it !

Next up was the Covert Robin organised by the talented Rachael over at Imagine Gnats
I was lucky enough to receive another great parcel from the very artistic Tabitha over at Klucking Bear 
(check out her illustrations ! They are AMAZING !)

I was blown away by this stunning piece she made just for me !

She looked at my pinterest page & saw I had pinned some bunting & she bunting-ed up an 'S' for Siubhan !

In the pack too was also a great magazine called Apronology full of ideas for fab aprons!
One in particular really caught my eye. I'm going to have to make this 'junkin' apron' for Lorna for when she starts her career as an Artist !

All of the above will soon be finding a home in my NEW workroom!!
My husband & son are currently 'doing - up' the spare room (insulating the roof at the minute) .
I'm looking forward to moving into a new brighter, bigger space soon.
Have a sneak peek at the work in progress .....

Hope you have a lovely weekend !
Thanks for visiting & do come back soon !

Love Siubhán x x x
