Bloggesr Meet Swap

Hopefully I have scheduled this post to go up late enough
so that none of the girls coming to the Bloggers Meet / Sit and Stitch Day
in Ballan today wont see it before they leave home :)
We have an optional swap where a designer is selected,
then it is up to the individual to select what they will make.
This time around the Designer is Rosalie Quinlan.
So many beautiful projects to choose from.
Would you like to see what I have made?
A bunch of Roses :o)

Each Rose is made from a Fat 8th and when the recipient no longer
wishes to have / admire her roses she can unroll them, iron the fabric and
use it in her next project :o)
The Roses are made from one of Rosalie Quinlan's fabric ranges.
This project can be found in Rosalie's book "Gift".
I have enjoyed having these on my Bookcase for the last couple
of weeks that I think I need to make a bunch for ME.

and of course what do you normally give when giving flowers?
That's right, chocolates so I have also included a vase for the
flowers to stand in and a box of Roses chocolates.
Hope the recipient loves them as much as me.
Hopefully I will have some pictures of our day to share with you next time.
hugs, Sharon

  16. Who was the lucky person that got your swap gift Sharon. I have looked at those roses in the pattern book & wondered if mine would turn out looking the same. The fabrics are beautiful but don't think I could bear to unwrap them. Fantastic idea. Tracee xx
