Swapping Spoolies

Here's the adorable spoolie my swap partner, Becky, sent to me! Isn't she wonderful? We participated in Sue's It's a Very Cherry World Valentine's Day spoolie swap.



She stands on a wooden spool and vintage jello mold.


She has lace, pom poms, rick rack and glitter and is oh, so pretty. The other girls seem to be checking her out...I wonder what is going through their minds?


But that's not all that was in the box.


A chipboard dress form, flower image cards, library cards in packets, tickets, a chandelier prism,


bottle caps, bingo covers, and yo yo quilt pieces and a little pin cushion all of sweet fabrics,


...so many pretty things that will embellish future projects.


I'm inspired for sure!


I love it all, Becky! Thank you so much!

Here's the spoolie I made for Becky in the package I sent to her.


I couldn't make just one. I am thankful to Sue for having this swap that inspired me to make such pretty things. Some I gave away; some I kept for my creative space.


I also made tags with my Silhouette Cameo,


a bunch of them too!


I can't wait to see the other spoolies in the swap. Thanks again Sue and Becky!

  8. Patty, the spool Valentine's are so wonderful. Such a sweet idea, and your spools are terrific. I remember wooden spools. I'm so sorry I took them for granted back the in day.

    Thank you for your delightful visit and comment. Hope your Saturday was very Pink.
