As promised, I'm going to show you what I made and sent to my April partner for our YOE swap. The theme for April was Songbirds (to quote Val....... think Cinderella type birdies:-)

I made her 2 birdie ornaments - one out of fake leather with fabric wings and the other one was my favorite, and soooo easy and quick to make. He was the spool bird (the red one you see). I added some eyes and wings to him, and hung some beads and a jingle bell from his belly:-)

I also made her some fabric coasters, and added a few of the goodies she liked.

In return I recieved this lovely package. I love the embroidered scatter cushion. It is now nicely nestled among my other cushions on a bench I have in our entrance hall.

For this swap, we also all signed up to provide a door prize for one of the months. I'm this month and I'm so excited about what I've put together - I can't show you yet though, as the theme for May hasn't been posted yet, but as soon as it is you'll get to see!!!!
Until next time - enjoy the beautiful spring weather:-)
Perhaps even take your crafting outside if you can.....
