The Creative Blog Hop #18

Welcome to the 18th Creative Blog Hop

I hope you have had a busy creative week. I have and it feels good to get behind the sewing machine.  A little over a month ago a blogger friend Michelle of Michelle's Little Piece of Heaven had a Craft Swap.  What fun it was to think about what to make and give to your craft partner.  She told us who our partner was and there were no rules just make and give whatever you wished to this partner. I apologize for being late with mine, had technical difficulty with my sewing machine...

My partner was Michele Scaife of Simply Scaife Family Farm

She sent me the most exquisite ribbon needlework table runner, a hand croched scarf and a window sill angel.  Click HERE to see what I received from her just in case you missed it; or just to view the beautiful items again!
 I will treasure those items forever. Thanks Michele!

She made such a nice post yesterday of her package from me...I was excited to see if she would like it.

Michelle Cutler of Michelle's Little Piece of Heaven said she may get another craft swap together for December and I wanted to let you know far enough ahead to be thinking about joining us. It was great fun to send as well as receive a surprise package in the mail!

I want you to visit the two blogs and join them you won't be disappointed.  There is always something new to learn. They cook, garden and sew, among other things on their websites.
In fact why don't we all make it a habit to join each others' blog websites?  I do and meet some of the nicest people. We need to promote each other and share because we do care about each other.

 A great big thank you to all that are so loyal and post with us here.  You are all Creative!

Now to announce last week's
