Mellow and …Pink

But you knew it was going to be pink!

I had fun making and choosing mellow and pink things for Erica and her two wee girls Isabella and Mailee. Now that they have arrived, let me show you them 🙂

For Isabella


The pink gingham is from a skirt my Nana made and wore, and that I wore for several years. I hadn’t worn it lately, so I decided to make use of the fabric while it still has some life in it.

For Mailee


The back of this is also pink gingham.

For Erica


A little bag…with….


A gingham tummy filled with pink sweeties and…


A necklace inside the little white package…I hope this is “mellow” enough for you to wear Erica!

Also in the parcel was a kitty-cat to help out on baking day


And a packet of Tim Tams, NZ favourites, and totally worth doing a swap with me for….right Erica?! (These were actually for you Bret- to share with whom you saw fit!)

Thanks for being my swap partner Erica, and I hope you like the goodies.

Thanks also to Marta, for organising this fantastic event!

    It’s funny because I participated in the mellow & yellow swap and I am in Christchurch too! What are the odds? Nice collection you put together 🙂

    I loved every single thing about your package and everything means so much more knowing that it was made by something personal….you are truly gifted at what you do! Thanks for making my family and me smile!

    wow- what a wonderful swap parcel- those aprons are really gorgeous! I love your embroidery too. The recipients are so lucky, but it looks like you had a lot of fun creating the gifts too. 🙂
