A lovely little idea for a swap where you fill a kitchen roll tube with teeny tiny wonderful things and then wrap the tube in fabric, and tie with ribbons! (giving your partner a fresh new piece of fabric for their stash and two new fab lengths of ribbon!)
I was paired with Tracy herself and set about filling my cracker (kitchen roll tube) to send her!
All I'm missing is the partridge in a pear tree!
I had great fun playing 'Cracker Tetris' fitting in all the little bits!
I wrapped my cracker in some dotty blue fabric with blue dotty ribbons as these matched the knitted mug warmer I sent her (wrapped around the cracker as it wouldn't fit inside! My Tetris skills aren't that good!!)
A little winter lady in a festive felt cape
A pair of earrings with red bows and keys
And a teeny weeny little Christmas Tree cross stitch which I had wanted to fix a small magnet to the back of but for the life of me could not find one anywhere!
I was so excited when Tracy's cracker for me arrived!
It was wrapped in the cutest Christmassy fabric and tied up with Merry Christmas ribbon!
So that was the tale of the cracker swap! Good fun was had by all!
Thank you Tracy, not only for organizing such a brilliant swap but for all the wonderful goodies you bestowed upon me!!!
