Time Away and Other Bits

I have had a few lovely days away visiting DD2, her partner and my gorgeous little grandson.
This was the view just 2 metres from the door of our accommodation. Very hard to take really. And more special because we don't often  get the opportunity to all get together. Being school hols DD1 and her two children were able to join us.  I did pack some sewing, but most of it just went for a little holiday. I did manage to get one little block sewn.
This lovely parcel was waiting for me on my return home. A swap gift from Kerrie, my partner in Mrs Martins "My House My Home" swap. This time we were to make for the bedroom. How gorgeous is this beautiful linen bag that Kerrie had made for me. Very hard to see but it has been beautifully hand quilted. It would be lovely as a sewing pouch as well.
Kerrie had also made for me these two lovely scented heart hangers and embellished with my favourite Theodora Cleave  buttons and added some very, very cute buttons. 
She always sends the most beautiful cards. This one has a beautiful piece of antique linen incorporated. Thankyou for spoiling me with such gorgeous swap gifts Kerrie. Cheryl
