Fab Flickr Swaps

And speaking of swaps, I've joined two others as well (all run by Heather.  That girl seems to be the source of great Flickr groups).

What's a swap?  The organizer pairs swap members up according to style, including taste in fabric.  Each member makes an inspiration mosaic showing projects and colors she loves that fit the swap theme.  Then, her partner makes her something or maybe a few things - it's a total surprise!  Because of the nature of Flickr, swap members have fun posting work-in-progress pictures and even pictures of the finished project to the swap group photo pool.  You never know if you might be the lucky recipient until your swap package arrives in the mail!

This is going to be so much fun!  I love the idea of creating for someone else with so much freedom and yet concrete inspiration too.  And, I just know my hard work will be appreciated by a fellow stitcher.

Here is my inspiration mosaic for {Urban} HOME Goods:

Please click on the mosaic to find links to each picture on Flickr.  If you want in on this group, there's still plenty of time.  Round 1 is finishing up and I'm waiting for Round 2!

I also joined Savvy {Seasons}, which is a swap focused on modern holiday decor.  Yep, this is the group that got me plotting for Christmas sewing already!  But, members can choose to focus on any holiday.  Here's my mosaic:

The swap is scheduled to start in August, so there's still time to join. I can't wait to see my partner's mosaic and start dreaming!

  1. Ha ha - I was just checking out the mosaic and did a double take when I saw that you included a pillow I did! Thank you and what a nice surprise!
