Heleen and Corry from Dutch Sisters were kind enough to pair me up with Michaja who lives in France. How wonderful is that? I quite love France actually having visited it twice before. I was very much looking forward to receiving my swap pillow and we ended up sending them the same day. Mine arrived two days before hers, so go NZ Post!! Don't you just love what she made me?
I love the little bird fabric, I'm sure I've seen it on someone's blog before. I also love the pretty ribbon through the centre of the pillow, pretty little flowers. And see what else she sent. A cute Russian doll keyring which will be very handy. I love the card too. I have a thing for pretty, stylish cards don't I? I really do love them very much, they are not wasted on me, I keep them for years.
And how about the back of the pillow? Cute little touch don't you think? I'm sure someone will be able to tell me what the fabric is called. Anyway it's found a bed to call home and is very happy over here in little old NZ.
Thank you very much Michaja for my wonderful swap parcel and thank you to you Heleen and Corry for matching me up with a lovely new friend. And that's that for my swaps now. All finished and no more to do. It's quite nice really as it's going to get busy around here in the next few weeks with end of year activities and Christmas just weeks away. Over here we finish school for the year a week before Christmas so it's all go with end of year concerts, graduations, goodbyes for teachers, summer fun etc. Very busy but all good fun.
Well I must go and find something to sew. I've been a bit slack in that dept lately. I'm working on a wall hanging but it's slow going. Not sure about it at all. Don't you hate that? Perhaps I'll move on to something else for a while. Perhaps one of those unfinished quilts? Nah!! OK I'm off, have a good weekend!
Oh if you were wondering where those lovely Chocolate coins are from (yesterday's post) BHS in the UK apparently.
