A little bit of everything

Hurrah! I have finally finished my Paper Bag swap items for Maree! Can I show you them? Nup, not yet! You, like Maree, shall just have to be patient and wait a few days! I'm really happy with how it all turned out, and I just hope that Maree will like them. Mum wants to keep it, as per usual, so I'll have to quickly get it into the post tomorrow before she becomes too attached.

Meanwhile, check out the gorgeous items that Leah has made for Kris! Here is one of the items - a fabulous bag! I really like how Leah has predominantely used the linen, and then stitched it with the red stitching around the top, and handles. It really looks so striking. I must say, I love red and cream/white together.
Please check out Kris and Leahs blog to see the rest of the items that were made for the swap.

And lookie what came in the mail this week.... my giveaway prize that I won! Check out this ultra cute tin that Gail made. I just love it! And inside? 3 fat quarters!! Oh, a girls in heaven! Thank you so much Gail - I'm so thrilled that I won!

Now ladies, thoughts and opinions needed! What do you think of these fabrics I just bought today at work? The pink one on the left is from the Aviary range by 3 sisters for Moda, the center three are Somerset Cottage by Robyn Pandolph, and the last one is a cream quilters muslin. Do you think they look good together? I ummed and ahhed over them for about 30 minutes, trying to decide. I'm quite happy with them, and I really like the soft, feminine pallete, but are they too soft?


Oh, if you are wondering what they are for, well, it's for a secret project that I can't divulge on just yet. Oh, I'm horrible aren't I?

I don't know about mum wanting to keep what I made but it certainly has made itself right at home here while it has evolved. I have finished my swap giftie and will have a hard time putting it in the post. Maybe after work tomorrow? Gorgeous bag, sweet fabric!
