Folksy 2010 Valentine Heart Swap

Back in Dec, Lisa from noodleBubble suggested a Valentine Heart Swap on Folksy. The only stipulation was that it had to be HANDMADE and a HEART. Then in Jan she told us who we were making for, with the aim to post by the 5 Feb so it would arrive in time for Valentines Day.

The person I was making for was Claire of LittlePudding, so to get some inspiration I had a look at her shop and profile and came up with the following gifts for her.

Some heart stitch markers, as a knitter I thought these would be useful.

Most people like to read, so a red heart bookmark.

and it wouldn't be Valentines Day with out some chocs!

I have heard that the parcel has arrived safely, so I can now post these picks. She was delighted with the gifts and I've been told the chocs didn't last long with a glass of wine ;-0).

I am so glad you loved your gifts LittlePudding.

My Heart swap was waiting for me when I came home from work today. Suzanne from Handmade - fromtheheart was given the task to make for me.

I received these lovely wooden hanging hearts

and some chocs also!

Thank you Suzanne, they are lovely gifts.

Thanks also to Lisa for arranging the swap, I know alot of time goes into organising these events.

Happy Valentines everyone!
