Friends in Stitching swap.

Bec was my partner in our FIS online group swap and this is the parcel I rceived naturally the chocolate didn't last long.



What a great bag this is, our theme for this swap was a Leanne Beasley design.


Here is my beautiful model.... June my g/daughter, she was a terrific help with my photos.


Thanks so much Bec for my fantastic bag, I hope I don't wear it out too quickly.

Here is the gift I sent to Vicki .. I used a fat1/4 for the wrapping with matching ribbon. 
 
This stitchery is from the "Life is a Celebration" quilt from the Homespun magazine and this is the Leanne Beasley stitchery, thought it might look good in a bag and I'm very pleased with the end result, I did the stitchery when I was on our Norfolk Island holiday.

Such beautiful bags Helen. Welcome to the Stitch-A-Long too. Hope the elbow holds up. I've actually thought something was happening to mine (I bet it's from all my stitching) LOL!
