Last Friday was the opening of my on line group Friends in Stitching latest swap.
This swaps theme was Red & White. It was so much fun.
This is what I received from my partner Fiona...
The most gorgeous patchwork and quilted bag. So much detail and so many lovely fabrics...
I love it!
Inside... Fiona's lovely label.... and more goodies....
A red 2013 diary (perfect size for my handbag), some strawberry and cream lollies (long gone!) and the cutest little Christmas tree decoration....
How cute is it?
Thanks so much Fiona... I love what you made for me!
This is what I made for my partner Peg. It's a Christmas mail bag and is one of Tilda's designs from her book "Crafting Christmas Gifts".
Some details of the bag...
I've wanted to make this for ages... so glad I finally got to make it for Peg.
The reindeer on the front pocket is appliqued, has "snow" painted on to it and some embroidery.
It was a lot of fun to make.
There was also a Tilda stocking in there and some red and white jelly beans (as I confessed to Peg... there were green ones in there too... but they didn't fit in with the swap theme... so I ate them!!!)
Another wonderful swap!
The next, and final one for this year, is the Christmas swap... I'd better get a move on!!!
Hope you're having a great day!
