I am in an "online" stitching group.
We had to decorate a paperbag and send it to our "swap partner" along with:
* two fat quarters of material,
* a piece of trim and a button,
* and a little stitchery.
The above is the Decorated Paper Bag that I sent to Peg who was my swap partner -lucky me!!
In the Centre is a gorgeous stitchery she has done as a pin cushion, and she has added three beautiful handmde pins - one an owl - just love owls, laong with some scissors and a sewing fob.
How lucky am I to have had such a lovely partner. Thank yo so much Peg.
Separtely, sent to me from Tereasa was this Fabric which I needed to make for her.
This was a Challenge for me, as I really didnt know what I would put together.
so... with a bit of throught, I came up with the following3 items:
A Book cover, for quilt progressions, plans /ideas etc.
And I hope Tereasa doesn't mind, but I added some extra fabric to make it go further to make
a Mini Sewing Compendium to hold the a small rotary cutter, mat etc when you need to travel light
And a fabric booklet to hold all the different size needles that we need in the world of patchwork.
Tereasa's trip was the pink ribbon, so I used it behind an appliqued heart with a bit of padding underneath for a needle holder to keep when it is threaded and ready to go.
I did find it a challenge, but have enjoyed being in this swap.
