Friends with Benefits Swap

Norma (no Blog) and I were paired for the Friends with Benefits Swap.
We have now exchanged gifts so it's time to share :o)

Here is what I sent to Norma.

 A Sewing Tote to keep her projects in.
Norma gets to go on Quilting retreats as well as gathering with friends so
this bag should come in handy.

A little stitchery / wall Hanging or Table Mat
(sorry, not a very good photo)

A couple of patterns

and lastly a little Friendship Card.

and here is what I have received from Norma.

I love a beautifully wrapped present :o)

The Pot Holder is already hanging in my Kitchen.
I wont be using it though as it looks great hanging up :o)

I am moving my sewing space around so once it is all sorted again I
think that I will hang up the Tea Pot also :o)
I love having my swap gifts displayed through out my home and sewing space.

Thank you Norma, I love my gifts.

  7. Oh Sharon - I am so slow ( or perhaps just thick?) I completely missed this post about your swap gifts :(
    Anyway - what wonderful gifts Sent and received. The bag you made is gorgeous, I spy some fabric I have just used to test out my new Go! Baby. Is the stitchery your own design? If not I might just have to hunt it out. Norma's blue and white stitching is very sweet and a lovely friendship gift :)
