Swap Update and Thank yous...

I have discovered the fun of swapping. Below is the beautiful bag and extra lovelies that Caryn
sent me all the way from USA. It makes me wonder how many quilting bloggers there are out there. In the three swaps, I have joined, all of my partners, either sending or receiving, are new to me. Despite the ever growing list of blogs I visit. What a great way to make new friends and share craft and happiness. If only the real world could be so friendly and happy. Caryn has also made me an extra bag which holds a miniature cutting mat so it all fits in for some portable stitching. What a great idea. Thanks so much Caryn, I will thoroughly enjoy my bag. And here's the bag and matching card I made for my partner Kim, also in USA. I hope that Kim gets as much enjoyment out her bag as I had making it for her.
Lastly is my first two projects for my Stitcher's Angel Swap. I have used two of the projects we have been given and am eagerly waiting to see what comes next before I decide what else to make. Natalie's Blue Wren's turned into Robin's when I stitched them in red to suit my partner's favourite colour. That could be taken as a hint, but won't help much considering there are 250 angels around the world. What an achievement in itself, to arrange a swap on such a grand scale. Who knows which of the lovelies I spy might be mine, or even if I have even discovered my partners blog. Guess someone out there is having a snicker.

Just to let you know. The pink minkee has been delivered and is now snuggling a new baby girl named Bridie. Will leave that for a photo for another day. Also Myra over at Tactile Pleasures is having a giveaway to celebrate reaching her 200th post. Will I ever make it that far? I've got a bit of time up my sleeve to think of a prize anyway.
