Plugs

I thought i would blog today about some of the wonderful products and services my friends make/design.

First Up Vivianne
A few weeks ago i blogged about the shawl i made for her as part of a private swap we were doing. In exchange i recieved some GORGEOUS cloth tablewear. Int he set were 6 quilted placemats, 6 quilted coasters and 6 cloth napkins.

I am so stoked with the quality of the work and just how pretty they are! i Cant wai tto have people over for dinner so i can give them a whirl :)
Vivianne is an amazing quilter and runs the label "Sew Vivid".

Next is Sam
I was lucky enough to score one of her swift sacks form a blog giveaway she was making and man what a gennious little tool!

In fact Sheryl dyed this yarn too in our last Naki swap! I have 1 sock down and one to go but it is hibernating while i am manically kniting a super excting secret project for the next couple of days ;)
Dolce is the big sister verion to the Toddler socks version.

Jo is last but CERTAINLY not least
I was lucky enough to be gifted one of Jos beautiful interchangeable needle cases
and stitchmarker holders.
