I played for the first time at A Swap for All Seasons in the Mother's Day Brooch swap. My wonderful partner, Mary, sent me the sweetest package and brooch.
She sent the package all wrapped up in the most gorgeous doily which she laced shut with ribbon. Genius! Then a super great tag that will be a perfect bookmark. And even extras ~ a yummy soap that made the box of everything smell delicious, and a tiny bear measuring tape (adorable and oh so useful).
And inside that wonderful fabric covered, music lined box? The most beautiful sachet and a Mother's Day Brooch that seems it was simply made for me. :)
Here I am wearing it today.
Here is the package I sent to Mary.
She said she liked cameo pins, and I found a really interesting 3D cameo brooch for her.
Mary is a quilter so I made a pinwheel square and added an "M" applique and some lace. I thought maybe she could add a hook to the back to hang it up and decorate it with more brooches, or have it on a table flat even. Then I wrapped the whole thing in a color coordinated hankie. I hope she liked her package. I had such fun with this swap and having her as my partner.
Happy Mother's Day y'all!
