Sweetly Swapping Easter!
This Easter season I participated in two fun swaps. The Spoolie Swap was hosted by Sandy of 521 Lake Street. The object was to create a cute and unusual Easter decoration out of a wooden thread spool. We were assigned a partner and got to work. It's fun to do one-on-one swaps...that way we get to know someone just a wee bit better. We try to find some "little extras" that might fit their personalities and taste. My partner was Sue of It's a Very Cherry World! I want to thank her so very much for what she sent me...and tell her that the chocolate bunnies never made it past my granddaughters uneaten! A new world's record!
Sue's Beautiful Spoolie!
She made the picket fence stand separately...two gifts in one!
Which first...the chicken or the egg?
I love the German paper mache eggs!
And I adore the cute vintage pompom chicken...made for each other!
I have very little vintage Easter in my craft supplies.
Thank you, Sue for these funny chicks in the polkadot scarves!
Also the ribbon that looks like wee pennants.

(Weren't we just talking about her? lol!)
Melody's Wonderful Spring Scarf!
Melody of Nannie's Attic was my partner for this swap. We were to make our partner an Easter decoration or something Spring related. Melody crocheted this beautiful scarf for me! It is in my favorite spring colors and the softest of yarns! I couldn't believe someone would make me something so wonderful. Thank you, sweet Melody! I hope we are partners again sometime!
