Secret Valentine Swop

Early January, I've organized a swop session for Shuttle & Needle group... I called it Secret Valentine Swop. More than 10 people took part, they came from various countries like Malaysia, Singapore, India & Italy. For this swop, we were not supposed to reveal our partner. Then, we 'hand - made' a valentine card with motifs related to Valentine... Besides that, we included a supply that our partner will like to have. However, we were not able to ask them directly as it was supposed to be a 'secret'. So, Faizon built a database to collect information such as, our favorite colors, supply that we like to have... Thanks to her... =D Everyone was very cooperative. They provided information & delivered their items on time. It was a success.

My secret partner is Sue... Coincedently, Sue is my very good friend's (Mona) housemate in KL... Mona came to Singapore during this swop period, instead of mailing to Sue, I've asked Mona to pass to her... Surprise! Surprise!

Due to lack of time, I've made a veru simple card with three crochetted hearts... She wanted some plastic eyes for her dolls.. So, I've included 15 pairs of eyes... =D Glad she likes them very much...

Then, I'm Irma's secret valentlne... I received a lot of lovely stuffs from her... She tatted a pair of earings & a necklace for me... Lovely Lovely.. Then she tatted 5 hearts, 2 butterflies & made a cross-stitch string pouch with my name JULLIE sewn on it... Since I'm making dolls too, she included a bag full of wobbling doll's eyes...
