Friends Having Fun Swaps


It's time for our first swap for the year - Dresden.

My secret partner to send to is the lovely Fiona.  I made her this Dresden Hoop Hanging.

And if you remember, Fiona so kindly sent me a Mug Rug a little while back when I happen to put it out there that I do not like them. Well it was time for payback!  On Fiona's form she listed "Brussel Sprouts" on her dislikes and followed it with a comment along the line of "I should be safe there".
  Well my dear friend, one should be careful what she puts out there :o) 

Here is my first "venture" into "fabric design and fabric printing" all compiled into a new
Mug Rug for Fiona.

Thank you for the fun Fiona :o)

And look what I have received from the lovely Cheryl in the same swap.
Just perfect for me and Lily loved her little surprise and they did not last long, thank you Cheryl.

It's designed to hold all these lovely goodies but I've also taken them out and used it to hold a WIP in whilst out.  I love it Cheryl. Huge thank you.

I've also got a little mail from E. Bunny :o)

Huge thank you E. Bunny. You are so thoughtful. 

hugs Sharon
