Swaps



Look at my fantastic bag I got from Fiona as part of our little belated Christmas swap. It is so lovely - I am very pleased to have it. I think I will use this as my wip bag - ready packed with some hexagons and thread etc so I am never stuck for something to do when I'm waiting about in the car. The fabrics are very pretty and the handles just make it.




It was full of gorgeous goodies - all wrapped up beautifully.




Thanks Fiona - definitely a case of better late than never. My fault we were late as that blinking flu wiped me out for 3 weeks.


And here's my little quilt I made for Carolyn. She has it now so I am safe.





Just after I posted it I realised one of the little extra gifts had wandered off and so I will be sending that on this week.




I am still working on my Double Delight. As I thought because I decided to make extra blocks I was going to be short of the brown fabric. But fear not Karol-Ann came to the rescue as she had some in her stash and kindly sent me some. As Patrick would say - cheers big ears - lol !


I have more to say but no time now. See you soon .

Andrea, Such a cute bag and great goodies. I jsut love the little quilt you made. Stitcheries made into quilts just get my heart. (grin) Glad you found some more brown fabric. Very nice of Karol Ann to come to your rescue. Have a good day. Winona

It is nice to see stitchery and quilting mixed. I like to have some embroidery at hand and am always looking for ideas for its use.

LOVE that bag and its colored handles!! Very girly! ;-)

Your little quilt with the stitchery is just precious. Your stitching workmanship is for all to envy!

Sorry that flu knocked you out for so long. Hope that you're strong and back to feeling like Andrea again!
