First of all, there was my scrap swap with Rachael. It's our second scrap swap, and its such a simple but exciting thing to do. It's a great way of getting new fabrics, but in small manageable chunks that you can try out. I love getting little bits of things I've never seen, and discovering that I love them, or that they work really well with a fabric I already have or a project I'm working on. Gathering together bits and pieces of my own fabric and ribbon scraps, and wondering what Rachael will make with them is also fun! I love seeing the end product and spotting one of my scraps in there.
So last week I received the following gorgeous drawstring bag from Rachael, filled to the brim with a wonderful stack of fabric. So many scraps and colours, and ribbon too! I still have the pile in its little bag. I haven't explored it all yet and in some ways I'm almost loathe to take it apart and mix it in with my own scrap pile. I like looking at it sitting there, tied by a lovely piece of brown spotty ribbon, just waiting to be used!

|Wow...where to start?|
|There were different colour combinations to chose from...it was so hard to choose!|
