Fall Swap

This is my gorgeous fall swap from Miet, I absolutely love it and I think it's good enough to eat.

This is the second part of the fall swap, a beautiful autumn fabric and two kits for making necklaces and earring. Aren't they so pretty.

I am going to have so much fun making up these kits, thank you so much Miet.
I still have my summer swap to photograph so that will be put up next time.
Till then,

New Photos

This first photo is of a pincushion I received a couple of weeks ago from Kay and I forgot to take a photo of it.

This is my return swap from Merle in Australia, from the CAPC swap. Isn't that pincushion just a cutie.

This is my second pagoda pincushion, top side up.

this photo is bottom side up.
Here is a photo of the two pieces before sewing them together.

That's all for the moment, I have another pagoda pattern I want to try - LOL.

Goodies to show

The first photo is the swap I received from Carla. Look at this amazing pincushion and bag. I flipped the corner of the bag so you can see the fabric on the other side. Isn't it gorgeous.

Next photo is the Hug Swap items I sent to Maria in Holland.

and here is my return swap from Maria.

I borrowed Maria's photos for this because they turned out a lot better than mine - LOL. I hope Maria doesn't mind.

Next up is the swap for Miet. I made her one of the "famous" pagoda pincushions. Here is the pagoda on it's own. Here is the full swap sent to Miet.

Because I liked the style of the pagoda, I thought I would try and make one for myself as an early Christmas present. These are the two pieces before joining them together.

In the photo they look a bit orange but they are in fact red.
More photos later when I get my batteries charged.
