Let's Celebrate Gift.

Just a quick post to show you what I sent to Kali for our Spring swap. Luckily the parcel finally got to the correct destination because for some reason I put the incorrect post code on it. Hopefully I won't do that again.
For our swap we had to send a stitchery, using at least 4 different stitches and then it is up to our swap partner to use it however they like.
This is the stitchery I made for Kali. It is a stitchery pattern by Rosalie Quinlan. The stitches I used were back stitch, cross stitch, satin stitch, french knots and chain stitch.  

I also sent Pink fabric, vintage lace trim, ring for thread cards, some DMC thread in Kali's favourite colours, ribbon flowers and the leftover Cottage Garden thread I used in the stitchery.   

Glad you liked your gifts Kali, I love that through this swap hosted by Karen at Mrs Martins Quilt Shop, I have also made a new friend. Am looking forward to our next swap which will be in October.
Well, must go, have to get into my sewing room and get working on some finishes for this month.
Have a great day everyone..........Hugs..........
