lovely swap gift

This week was a lovely short week. Only one more to go till I have two weeks holidays.
Lorraine from the Balancing Kiwi and I were Christmas swap partners and we also did a little crocheted flower swap. Our next swap was to be pot holders. Lorraine is a little more organised than I am but I did get her potholder swap item made on Monday. Now to get to the post office, but it will be on it's way this week, come hell or high water!
Here is the lovely gift Lorraine sent me.....
It is gorgeous and Lorraine is another 'blue' girl like me so she chose the fabrics perfectly.
Now will I let anyone use it? I don't think so!
Not much craft to talk about since monday but I did download the new Sweet nostalgia block, I just have to get a wriggle on to finish last months.

Have a lovely weekend

What a great idea for a pot holder and how beautiful it looks. Is that purple binding or piping? Just gorgeous. You aren't going to use it are you? Personally I think practical items should be used, but there are always exceptions to the rule!

Super sweet pot holder - I love the shape.

Nice decoration in the kitchen.
