SWAPS........

 On my craft forum I joined in the bookmark swap and this is what I made and sent to Nome's.The stitcheries are by leanne Beasley and done in purple Nome's favourite colour.
 This month in the fat 1/4 swap I also sent to Nomes ( I posted them together)  Nomes and I had a little discussion via emails about the theme as I don't really like brights so we decided to send each other something diferent and these are what I selected for her.I just love the babushka doll one!
I've also been working on finishing a few small projects like this cushion cover,all it needed was a bit of the running stitch done and then I could put it together....why oh why do I alsways get to nearly the end of a project and then put it away without actually finishing it off.All it took me was 10 min's max to finish the embroidery and another half hour and I had a finished cushion cover :)

Lovely bookmarks and pillow cover!
There are at least 2 positive moments - first, you nearly finish your crafts (not stopping in the middle) and second, you finish them someday - that's great! ;)

Hugs,
