January Fabric Banner Swap

Today's mail brought my mini banner from my partner Joy, who also lives in Ohio...not far from me actually.  She knows that winter is not a favorite of mine, so she went with a lovely pink theme for my banner.  I love it!  The little crocheted doily is so cute & the lace flower is the perfect reminder that spring is getting closer to us each day.  Joy added touches of embroidery & some pretty pink beads, too...as well as some of the pink ribbon I sent to her in a swap last year. 
 
You can see the details here.  I love hand stitching & the bits of embroidery & embellishment here are so sweet. 
 
Even the back of her little banner says spring to me...I can hardly wait until we'll have flowers & greenery outside instead of the dead looking trees & snow we have now. 
 
I'm lucky to be able to mail to Joy for our February swap...I'm already pulling out fabric & trims to inspire me.  You can read about our swap here at A Swap for All Seasons
 
Thanks so much Joy...you made my day so much brighter!!!

  3. Hi, Debbie! Sorry I didn't visit here sooner! I am happy you like your little banner. As I look at it, it seems a bit amateur-ish. But, I did have fun making it and hope I will get better with this small format as the year goes along!
