Mouthy Stitches Mailing!!

Mouthy pouches are now winging their way all over the globe!  OK, sounds like a bit of a big old claim, but it's true!


I sent dear hubby to put this little number and roll of scraps in the mail today, I have seen the receipt, it is not still in the car; so hopefully they will arrive with my partner next week, postal workers willing! 

I hate the anxiety of sending things that I have invested so much of myself in; and I will be in a slight state of agitation until I know it is safe in the recipient's hands.

And just to 'up' my blood pressure, Cindy, Susan and I will be anxiously monitoring the whereabouts of almost 100 other pouches!  Yes, we went large.

I am so proud to be a Mama in this swap, the purses are all stunning, everyone has made such an incredible effort to tailor their makes to their partner's preferences - it's been a superb!

And as with all swaps, now's the part where we all remember that someone, somewhere really has made something for us too.  I don't think I am the only one who forgets about this bit!  Despite pretty much staking a claim on all the pouches in the flickr pool, I never quite believe that one really is mine; I'm a bit like our 5 year old girls seeing every singer, actress or pretty lady on TV and saying 'I'm that girl'!
