I participated in a heart swap on the picasa forum. Joy was my partner and look at the wonderful hearts she made me. This is the front

and this is the back, cute huh!

this heart smells so wonderful of lavender
And these are the hearts I made for Joy.

This heart is made from the pattern that I found on a wonderful blog called

I also made a small heart for pins and I included a fake buxus heart in the swap but silly me forgot to take photo's of those items.

Monique, wat GAAF!! Zo leuk om te zien, ben erg blij dat ik er iemand een plezier mee kan doen. En ook heel mooi gemaakt. En wat zie ik bij je vorige post, haak je de granny squares!!! TE GEK, dat staat ook op m'n lijstje. Wellicht wordt dat in vakantieperiode of daarna om zo'n te gek gehaakt kleedje te maken. Leuke kleuren heb je trouwens. Heel fijn weekend toegewenst, liefs en een hartengroet van Cindy

Wat een onwijs leuke swap! Ik had dit keer niet zoveel tijd, maar als ik dit zie.... spijt als haren op m'n hoofd! Je hebt leuke harten gekregen, maar ook verstuurd! Vooral de stitchery is m'n favoriet!
