Charm Heaven


These charm squares have really taken over the week.  I thought I would show you how pretty they are looking this evening.  Much to my dismay, after I took this photo I found Catherine's charms on the kitchen table!  I forgot to bring them with me up to the shop!  Sorry, Catherine. They're here - honest.


I cut thousands and thousands of charms from shop fabric, which I really honestly did enjoy doing.  I'm not sure I would want to do thousands more right away, but I could see us doing this annually if you guys are up for it! 


And of course the other gazillion charms came cut by our swap buddies.  Ladies, I so love the fabrics you choose to contribute.  They're gorgeous!  I'm not sure the post lady is thrilled with all of the extra work this week, but I couldn't wait to get home each evening and see what arrived!


I have one more piece to cut for the texty charm swap.  It's become a ritual this evening charm-cutting :)

I'd be locking the doors and windows and denying everything - what fabric?

Judith, Belfast said...

Oh you poor thing, all that cutting! Thank you for being such a patient and brilliant swap mama.Jxo

Kirstie Cantegreil said...

I second Judith's comment! I'd have gone doo-lally-tap by now, cutting all that fabric, but you've been a real star organising this for us. And I, for one, would definitely be up for an annual swap. Very excited about getting the charm pack back! xx

You've been kept busy! And yes I'm up for an annual event now that I know I can do something with them!

Well done Cindy!

I guess if you have a fabric shop on your shelf you should like cutting fabric, I am looking forward to getting my charms, thank you for all the time cutting them.
