Finishes....

 Shez and I have a one on one swap with each other going on each time we meet at our Mill Rosie meet ups and this months designer was Natalie Ross and I chose to make Shez this block keeper.....Mmmmm I'm thinking I need to make one of these for myself? Shez of course loved it PHEW!!! Wiping my brow here!
 This is a picture of the inside of the block keeper......

 The back of the block keeper, I love all the colours/fabrics I used in this project :)
 Another finish is this blanket I've been working on for my sister since April, it's now in the Christmas gift basket waiting for me to wrap it up later in the year for her to put under her Chrissy tree.
 Here is a close up picture of the final edging I decided to go with after showing Anne for her final approval....
This is the gorgeous bag Shez made for me in our one on one swap but wait there's more!! she also included a zippered pouch, a mobile phone cover (always wanted one of these) and a tissue cover to inside my new bag. Thanks Shez I love everything you've made for me and I love the fabrics you used they are sooooo me :)
I'll try and do a few more posts over the next week with photo's of our Mill Rosie meet up and all the fun we got up to :)

WOW!!! I love the block keeper. I still haven't made myself one despite meaning to. Love the bag that Shez made you and all the extras. She is obviously very clever too. I think the blanket edge looks wonderful. Well done as usual.
