CHA Craft Swap

Recently I took part in the Contemporary Handmade Alliance's craft swap.

I made this slouchy for my Craft Swap Partner Skye from SummaSkye.  It was made using 100% pure new wool in teal.  The pattern is by Rachel Choi.

This morning I was delighted to receive my Swap Gift!!  

I hated having to open it as the wrapping was so pretty!

 Wow!!  I adore the colour green and she has even included some delicate crochet lace!  Perfect.  I've been admiring this hoops for ages now, I've even created a Pinterest board devoted to them. 

I've placed my hoop on my book shelf, above my growing collection of crochet book, along with my treasured brass rocking horse I found in Huskisson in 2009 and my Renee Anne print which Brett framed for me last Christmas.  

Thank you Skye, I simply adore my gift!
