FIS paper bag swap


At last I can show these photos, I'm a member of an online group "Friends in Stitching" and we had a paper bag swap ...... we had to send our partner a paper bag with 2 fat 1/4's a stitchery, button and trim or ribbon plus a choccie, then our partner would decide what to make using these goodies then send it back.... great fun. I had to make for Teresa and she gave me quite a challenge in her choice of fabric but I forgot to take a photo of the goodies and of course I ate the choccie so you will just have to use your imagination. Here she is opening her pressies, we all open online but I was able to give Teresa her gift in person.










    

I was just overwhelmed when I opened my parcel from Sarah... who was making for me, this cushion will be treasured forever and as you can see in these photos it has pride of place on my bed. This would have to be the most thoughtful and precious gift I have ever recieved and I can't thank you enough Sarah.









The shaggy quilt on the corner of the bed I made in 2005 for Mum's birthday and its also one of my little treasures.
