what a surprise!!!!


Here are my absolutely magnificent gifts that I have received from the wonderful Bev. my stitchers swap angel.
I adore all of them and they have made me over the moon!

Here is a close up of the mug hug ( I wanted to enter the mug hug swap but had a few too many things on so am so lucky to have one.
A cute card- I don't know which one I am?
A close up of the beautiful felted wool applique rose. I didn't make this one for my swap partner as I didn't think I could do it justice so I am so chuffed to have the needle keeper and the pin cushion. The big green ric rac is gorgeous and all the fabrics in the gifts are so wonderful!
Check this gorgeous pin out! Does it look like it would suit my tastes- well it is blue , It is a teapot......
And she also included a fat quarter of blue fabric.
Thanks so much Bev.
I love them all.
A big thanks to Helen Stubbing for organising this swap again this year and for all the wonderful designers that designed the beautiful gifts for us to make for each other.
It is so great to be able to get to know a total stranger and put all your effort and talents into making something for them.

What a happy day!

Thank you for the wonderful comments, Marina. The blue fabric is one of my hand-dyes done in Sept. So glad you are enjoying everything.
