Anna and I decided to do a little candy and fabric swap. Anna, a Londoner, was itching for some number fabric and some Butterfingers, and I have always pined for some Liberty fabric, and, well, you know me and candy from other places. I received the beautifully wrapped package today. Here’s the candy!
I’ve already sampled one of the milk chocolate caramel biscuit bars and one of the round red foil things (it’s a chocolate-covered marshmallow with biscuit!). YUM.
And the gorgeous Liberty fabric:
The piece in the upper left-hand corner is corduroy! Peter thinks I should make the upper right-hand piece into a kerchief. The cotton is so buttery soft that you’d think it was silk.
And the icing on the cake? These two handcrafted pieces from Anna:
On the left is a little felted lamb. It has a brilliant little beaded chain attached to it, so I can carry it with me all over Portland. On the right is a delicate pin cushion made with various pieces of Liberty fabrics! I guess I should have removed the ribbon so you could see the pieces more clearly. On the bottom of the photo you can barely see a piece of double-sided felt rick rack. Genius!
