My Laundry is Looking Beautiful -

thanks to some lovely swap gifts from Kerrie, my partner in Mrs Martins "My House, My Home" swap. This month we had to make for the laundry or bathroom. This is what Kerrie made for me -
A very cute wallhanging - perfect for my house, as I love old bits and pieces.

And a lovely peg bag to match. But there was more -
Kerrie had decorated this shopping bag with Suffolk puffs and lovely old buttons - love it, in fact loved all my gorgeous swap gifts.

While at my retreat last weekend I did get to go shopping, and I was very good (well fairly good), as I only bought fabric for projects I was working on. Want to see -
The green, red and cream are for "Angel Wings", a xmas project I'm stitching, and the tea stain is a lovely color to stitch.
