Jane Austen swap package

I had a wonderful time wrapping up all the different parcels to send off to my swap partner, Raeann, in Texas.

Little pieces of sparkly goodness on every one!


Inside parcel number one, some Australian chocolate goodies, a Jane Austen themed bracelet I bought, and a linen hoop I stitched up using a pattern from Wee Little Stitches on Etsy.

Edited-2129It’s a little hard to see, but instead of knots, I used tiny pearl beads for Lizzies hair and necklace, and brass ones for Darcy’s coat. This was so much fun to stitch up and frame!

Edited-2130While I had the cross-stitch supplies out, I created this I *heart* Darcy pattern using photoshop and the Pic2Pat site, and then stitched it up. I made it into an adorable pincushion, with a little lace trim and a bow, because I couldn’t help myself. Add in some Australian tea and some beautiful feathers fabric.

I enjoyed my first swap so much, I’ve signed up for 3 more already. I’m going to be sewing up a storm next year!

What’s been your favourite swap ever to participate in?
