friends swap arrived

Well this is what arrived in the mail this morning! I am so happy to be on holidays so I don't have to wait till I get home to open the parcel! Yippee.
this is the before shot

Here we have the after shot........

My gifts were: F a feathered friends pattern
R some ric rac and ribbon
I some inspirational fabric
E some emperor green tea
N a notebook
D a dairy milk duo block
S a sewing mat.
A Big Thankyou to Narelle for the lovely gifts and to Khris for organising the swa. (roll on the Christmas swap!)

Here is my latest Tisket Tasket basket block! Seeing as we don't celebrate fourth of July I omitted the little flag. It was great to encorporate the felting into the applique. There will be some buttons added to the star flowers when it is finished.
Just love it. The only thing about finishing it so quick is I have to wait till next month for the next one!
Off to show Veronica and Shirley at Jemima's my Girl's day out quilt top. Veronica helped me pick the fabrics for the borders and fill in blocks. They also supplied the pattern for the bom.

Next post I will show my friends swap items- hopefully Narelle has collected it by now.
