SWAPS, GIFTS, and OTHER LOVELY THINGS

I have been quilting away like crazy, trying to get things finished that were supposed to have been done for a swap group last year…I am hoping I am now up to date with it all. I cannot put pictures of any of them up yet until they have been received t’other end……

Meanwhile though I can show you some other stuff….My lovely Susan and myself are doing a private postcard swap this year and each of us is choosing a theme each month to do. For January Susan chose ‘MYTHICAL’   o’er Susan that was a shock for me, but I gave it my best shot and made this for her…

Mythical swap me to Susan

Mythical swap me to Susan – it is the Phoenix

…and here is Susan’s wonderful postcard to me…

I occasionally get asked by Geta to test a pattern for her, this is the latest one I have done it was so easy to follow her pattern,  if you go to her Blog, here is the link for you —    http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.co.uk/ you will be able to buy the pattern from her, they are brilliant, so much detail you just cannot go wrong…
