The Tweetie Trade!

Happy Tweetie Tuesday everyone!

Archie and I have been busy crocheting Tweeties again!

My friend Lynne and I from England decided to make each other Tweeties and send our color combo choices as a surprise!

I made this little guy that Lynne named Pecan!

He is a little nut isn't he with his one orange and one purple foot!

Here he is living across the pond with Lynne in her sewing room!

How FUN!

I got my package on the same day!

Imagine my surprise when I found not one but...

4 Tweeties in my package!

Oh my gosh!

They are fabulous!

She even sewed little seed beads on their tummies!

I love how they all turned out!

I wonder what we will make next!

What fun projects are you planning for the Fall?

Please leave me a note and let me know!

I cannot wait to hear all about them!

Pecan is so cute!
He is earning his keep, instructing me on the finer points of crochet and sewing - I am very impressed!
Glad your gang are enjoying it among the foliage of your terraniums Melissa and keeping Archie entertained with their singing :)
Hugs, Lynne

What beautiful little projects! I love the idea of a handmade gift swap. How fun!

In the fall, hats keep me pretty busy, but when I want to take a break from my shop work, I love to crochet for myself. Right now I am working on a granny-squares blanket in gray, wheat, aqua, and coral. The colors are so rich and I can't wait until I have my squares done so that I can put it together :]

I have, in the past, taken a bag of scrap fabric and swapped it for a similar bag of scraps with a friend and/or relative. The "game" is to make something cute/quaint from the scraps for the other person, all the while, remembering them in prayer. Such wonderful surprises have stemmed from these trades, bringing many smiles and even a few tears, of joy!
