Bloggy love swap treats

I made it !
I managed to wait until Valentine's day before I opened my love swap parcel,  it was definitely worth the wait.
Thank you so much Fiona ( Christal Creations ), I love them all, you have definitely been taking notes when looking through my blog !!

Would you like to see the goodies I received ?

I received the wonderful heart that is pictured above, made of tiny bells, this is already hanging in my window.

A beautiful piece of fabric, I have plans for this already.

A very pretty ramikin dish, I already have a little collection of these, this will fit in perfectly.

An absoloutly gorgeous bracelet, made by Fiona herself.

Last but by no means least some yummy chocolate ( eaten already ) and a handmade card that also contained a recipe for macaroons, they look fairly easy that even I might be able to manage them, watch this space.

In my last post I showed you a square motif that I had made from the Beyond the square crochet motifs book, I had plans to make them in to a little bag, my inspiration came from The Royal Sisters blog and her granny square bag.  Here are my little bags...

They are not quite finished yet as I want to line them and use a magnetic clasp.

One last picture, my little princess modelling the bags.

Hope you have all had a great Valentines day, speak soon xx

Hullo Jacey,

I have enjoyed this swap so much I have already signed up to the spring swap arranged by Sew Special Bears.
I am looking forward to seeing what is made from the material. I liked the pattern but am no seamstress myself.
