Sample swaps!!

Yep, sorry another FQly Retreat related post! Maybe only one or two more to go - I promise!!
Having purchased my weekend pass rather late and then reading on Flickr all the exciting preparations that had been going on for months I was glad that I was not too late to miss out on the amazing sample swap organised by Trashalou!
The plan "you make four samples of the same thing and swap them in a group randomly assigned on the day. In return you get back four lovely new things of handmade wonderfulness from your four new best friends"
And boy were they lovely things!!
Lucy made this gorgeous hexie tea towel, just check out the embroidery! It is too cute to use but is being displayed lovingly in my kitchen!
From Fiona I received this amazing armchair sewing organiser. Just love the colours and fabrics!
I felt very privileged that the next items came all the way over from the US! Dolores made these cute London tube humbug bags and cute little extra goodies!! Last but not least was Rachel and her adorable felt birdie brooches!!
It was lovely to meet all these people and discover new blogs as well. Thanks for the wonderful swaps!!
