FARMHOUSE SUMMER SWAP

I recently participated in a swap put on by Amy of Bumble Bee Lane. My partner was Danice of Homespun Hannah's Blog. There was a cute apron and towel, framed picture, a personalized crow, potpourri, clothespins tied with homespun, a pinkeep,  seeds and small pitcher with a homespun bow. Thank you Danice. I love everything. 
Here is the cute crow Danice made for me. She put my name on it. It says Schenk's Chicken Farm. No we don't have a chicken farm. I just like chicken things as you can see by the Apron.
Here is what I sent Danice. She likes Raggedy Ann dolls. I never made one before. I didn't have a pattern  so I just used a shelf sitter doll pattern I had and made it into a raggedy.

This swap was lots of fun. Thanks Amy for putting on another great swap. Stop over to Danice's blog to see more pictures of the swap.
