Friends with Benefits swap....

Today I received my beautiful gift from Lillian for the Friends with Benefits swap.
It's really beautiful and I think Lillian really hit the spot when she put her thinking cap on.
A beautiful hexagon shaped table topper now do you think that is me?! What gorgeous fussy cutting and look in the centre....
 a hexagon stitchery with fussy cut hexies in the centre.
 a beautiful hardanger scissor fob and this beautiful tape measure brooch, isn't it fantastic?
 I have just the place for it.... It looks perfect on my special blue bag. This was a swap gift from Oddbjorg in a past swap.
 Here are some pics of what I sent to Lillian..
A little craft keeper made with some special fabric that I have had stashed away for a little while. I added a little milk jug doilie that I think I have made for all of my swap partners.
 I thought this little button would finish off the keeper nicely.

these little buttons were from the AQC, cute aren't they?


thanks to Kathy for arranging the swap and thanks again to Lillian for such a lovely gift!
Happy crafting
Marina
