Let's Celebrate Swap

Firstly I had to show you these two gorgeous little witches who went out "trick and treating" for Halloween -
(my two little granddaughters of course).

For this month's Let's Celebrate swap through Mrs Martins Quilt Shop we were to send a block of our choice for the recipient to make into something as part of "Mrs Martins Quilting Day". . My partner, Julie and I decided we wouldn't make a block but do a finished item related to quilting.  Now my photography skills leave a lot to be desired so when I download the photo of what I had sent to Julie it was way too blurry to use, so I only have a photo of the inside to show you -


Anyway I'm sure you'll get the idea - a sewing folder with lots of pockets. Just what a girl needs for a day of sewing.

And Julie sent me THE most amazing parcel -
This gorgeous sewing pocket, a very cute sewing machine button and a lovely cottage garden thread "Snapdragon", which I am already using.

Isn't it amazing? Just LOVE it Julie, thankyou so much - can't stop looking at it.

Hi Cheryl, what sweet little witches ,love your sewing pouch too! Cheryl I have finished stitching Girls Day Out but I haven't started putting it all together as yet. I have cut out all the squares but its a bit overwhelming so its still just sitting there waiting for me to start. I just find it a bit hard to follow the instructions, maybe its just me! I just adore Michelles designs especially her chrissy ones. Happy Stitching.
