Crafty Swaps 2

I can now show you what I sent to Tracey (see previous post)

I racked my brains for ages as to what I could make for her - my only clue was her love of the colour purple! I would have made her a granny square blanket but the postage cost would have been

After much deliberation & panic I finally decided to take the plunge & do one of my 'doodle hands' that I've only ever made for myself purely when I was bored (pre crafty days!!!)

Tracey sent me a drawing I asked her to do of round her hand - like you used to when you were a kid...... remember? She sent it with the lovely sock rabbit she made me as her part of the exchange but unfortunately she had folded the paper & left an unsightly crease. After scanning it & photo-editing it I could finally get going.

I included the words 'family' 'life' 'love' 'laugh' 'home' & Traceys daughters name Robyn to give a bit of personality to it & make hers alone.
I was very pleased with it ......though I'm not sure it was quite the 'handmade item' that the organisers meant!! I have had an email from Tracey to say she loves it too!!
What do you think?
