Hoop-la-la Swap

I participated in the
 Hoop-la-la Swap

over on Flickr and as my secret  partner has now received
 her Hoop I can share what I created with you.
I was very lucky to be making my hoop for the lovely Heidi over at
Heidi has a gorgeous Blog and I have been following and
chatting with her for a while now so it was a real buzz to be
making something special just for her.  If Heidi was listening
carefully she could have heard my squeal of delight the day
we got our partners emailed to us :)
With her Blog name of Buttons and Butterflies it is
pretty easy to see where my inspiration came from :)
I couldn't decide which size hoop to go with so used two.

I also included a rainbow pouch for Heidi to keep her
Hexagons in as she has recently been bitten by the hexie bug.

Also added a cute little Craft Keeper for ribbons or threads, a little
butterfly notepad and of course some chocolate for her boys to share.
This was a fun swap and I am now stalking the postie to see who
and what is being sent my way.  The excitement builds :o)
Thank you Heidi, I have enjoyed putting this package together
just for you :)
Hugs, Sharon
