Mug Rug Swap adventure 3.

I joined this swap for the second time, and this round there was a holiday themed swap. The twist was that our swap partners could choose their holiday!

My partner had chosen Thanksgiving as her holiday, so that gave me a challenge. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Norway, but I did my best and came up with this!

Maybe it's not exactly Thanksgiving, but at least it's autumn themed, and as my swap partner said that she likes rich, warm autumn colors, I think this will be ok.

I added some cute little details, buttons, crochet leaves and rick rack. I'm happy with the mug rug, and I hope the recipient will be too. It was sent on a long journey yesterday!

Have a nice sunday!

Swaps... Again!

First, I would like to take the opportunity to tell my readers that today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. This is a cause that needs more attention.

I will light candles this evening, and I hope you will too.

Now, to something completely different!
I had a great mail day yesterday:-) 

My Pretty Little Pouch arrived!
It came all the way from Florida, USA, and it is the most gorgeous project pouch. 

I love the details, stitchery, YoYo's, the zipper pull... Beautiful!
The green text fabric is great.

There were extras in the pouch too.
Beautiful, hand dyed yarn from Chile, and a crochet pattern.
This yarn is gorgeous, soft, and it has a great color. 

And another pretty little pouch!
Lovely green fabric, and with pockets inside.

I love all of my presents, thank you from the bottom of my heart to Jeannie in Florida! 
She is such a great swap partner.
