Swapping with Low Volume

I decided at the start of last year not to do any more swaps. I put so much pressure on myself to make something really good and original, that I just ended up worrying about them. And then I started posting on Instagram. And I got sucked in again! But I'm trying to make myself less concerned with something original, and more concerned with having fun. So I'm currently making for three swaps.

I can show you the embroidery for the Whimsical Woodland Mug Rug, but I can't show what I've done with it after, as I think it would be a bit of a giveaway.


I love this fox design from Urban Threads! I need to get this in the post at the end of the month.

For the remaining swaps I'm playing with low volume - I had fabric all over the living room floor last night, cutting for these. The first is the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap, which posts in about a week (yikes).



I know it doesn't look much at the moment, but it's all you'll get to see until my partner receives it! I may have to get the fabric out again for a low volume scrappy binding. Or maybe I'll go with purple - what do you think?

And then I'm in the really early stages for the UK Mini Swap (which doesn't ship till April? - need to check that). I love the idea for this so much that I've cut two of each square to make a cushioni for myself in the same pattern! This is the low volume laid out and a hint at what I'm planning.


Back to work tomorrow...
