Little Things ....

This year Cheryl has been hosting a Little Bit French... there has been a series of really darling little french themed items and a swap....

My items went to Jane from Loopy Lou's who does all sorts of awesome things... so it was hard to decide what to send..... the swap was for one of the items that Cheryl had designed and I just couldn't decide which one... so two went over to the UK .... and wrapped in an Ausi map dish towel ... 


The little doily with incy wincy hexagons and an eye glasses case .....


They have arrived now, and dried out for Jane.... one great thing about the swaps is meeting new people in blogland....

and thanks to Cheryl for the inspiration and the patterns

The apple core quilts have been bound now.... I do like the effect of the curved binding round these little quilts...... backed with soft flannel....  these have now been posted off for specialness.... 


The rest of my binding is done... but that's mostly secret stuff.....

Righto, Gotto Go.... a new week has started ....

I do love the little apple core quilts. The colours are lovely and I am really impressed with the binding. What size did they end up?
Your gifts are delightful, too.

What sweet gifts! Curved binding is a bit fiddly-diddly, isn't it?

Melody said...

I do love them. I'm using the glasses case for my rotary cutter, it's been waiting for a case for a long time, and this is the perfect fit

Maria said...

I love them both too and Jane is a lucky lady.

Jane is a lovely lady. She and I have been bloggy friends for a few years now. All your lovely projects have found a home where they will be appreciated.

Tres Bien! Love them and I like Jane's idea to use the case for her rotary cutter.... Hugs

lovely gifts, Fiona :) And what a great idea to wrap it in an Aussie teacloth. Your apple core mini quilts are very sweet, I love the wavy edges.

The gifts you made are lovely, beautiful stitching. The apple core quilts are lovely too, the binding looks tricky!
