A Little Fabric, A Little Chocolate {Swap!}

A couple of weeks ago, I joined A Little Fabric, A Little Chocolate {Swap!} on Flickr. A couple of us newbies were paired together, and I had a great time making up a swap package for my partner, Nicole. The deal is, your swap package is to include:

~ Three fat quarters
~ Chocolate!
~ An extra little "treat" ~ something hand made would be awesome, or thread, buttons, notions, anything!
~ A hand-written note
~ A photograph or a blank postcard

Easy enough! My extra little "treat" was a couple of hand made somethings. This mug rug (my first!), since I knew Nicole likes owls:
and this table runner, made out of what I knew was one of Nicole's favorite fabric lines, Moda's "Dream On" by Urban Chiks:

Well, she received her package today and seems to be quite pleased. Well then, so am I!

P.S. Table runner pattern is Skinny Verna by Vickie Eapen at, found on at


  1. Yay for mug rugs and owls! Love the table runner. The orange binding is a nice touch.

  2. I recognize those scraps in that mug rug! So cool! I love the dream on table runner, it is beautiful!

  3. I didn't know you had a blog! And I am feeling quite famous to have been mentioned on it. :)
