Friends Having Fun Swap.....

How lovely to have had a visit from Mr Postie yesterday

I am in a lovely online swap group and my partner was Ondrea....

What a lovely table topper I recieved...


I just adore these sweet stitcheries in amidst the hexagons....


... and there was some treats added to the parcel too.... some lovely choccy and a little compact mirror... it's so pretty...


I took this close up picture so you can see just how much work went into this lovely topper.... all hand sewn and the quilting around the edge another lovely touch...

... what a pretty thread used ...


It's so beautifully done and fits my table next to where I sit EVERY night and sew - doesn't it just breathe happy into that space....


Thank you so much Ondrea, welcome to the group and I'm happy to have been your first swappy in FHFS... love my gift...

Thanks Shez and Peg for hosting the swap and getting us girls all organised....

Righto, Gotto Go.... wet and cold and grey (love it like this for a few days) ... I may need to stay indoors and sew....

Hi Fiona, You are right, the embroidery on the table topper is just so lovely. It certainly adds to the beauty of it. So nice to have such talented friends.

I'm thinking I see a Purple Trend of late!!!!! One can always enjoy chocolates, hmmmmm? The artistry in that piece is so pretty!!!!!! A wonderful swap partner for sure!! It's been wonderfully sunny here but we really do need rain and, by Sunday, I think the T-storms/rain will be visiting. It's great quilting weather either way, hmmmmm?????? Hugs............
