In the Mail today...

Look what I recieved today... My Paper Bag swap goodies from Jantine. A beautiful sewing themed dolly to hang in my crafting space, she has beautiful embroidered pockets on her dress to help keep things in their place. Jantine also made a little needle book with two pages and a cross stitch scissor fob and attached the scissors, I'm sure someone must have told her about my disappearing scissors.
The post people have been working together as Jantine sent a message to say that her package arrived today, so now I can show what I made for her.
The stitchery is a design by Lynette Anderson which appeared as one of the Breast of Friends blocks in Australian Homespun a couple of months back, of course it wasn't a stitchery design I just made it this way. I had so much fun creating this little wall hanging, with some sewing themed fabric squares and the fabric and notions which I recieved from Jantine.
Thanks to MissyMack for hosting this swap it was a lot of fun.
One last thing today, hop on over and say hello to Mini Monty Mama as she is celebrating 100 posts with a give away.
Happy Crafting

It was fun indeed and I still marvel when looking at this lovely quilt. It got a place in my sewing room already even though I have to find a better stick or something to hang it!
