Early Bird Christmas Crafting.......Final one for July!

Judith set us a task to create something for the home using two colours and a co-ordinating fabric base in white,cream,black etc....were allowed to be used and this is what I came up with.I used a combination of burgundy,cream with a hint of white for them using a charm pack from Moda "called Lumiere de noel".I love this new pattern I just purchased from a new and upcoming designer called Jo from ,it's her first design called "Trinkets"and hopefully not her last. If you get a chance go visit her blog she has some lovely stuff on it.

Craft Forum designer Swap

On the craft forum we had a designer swap and we could choose to do something made by Leanne Beasley or Bronwyn Hayes it was up to the maker to decide what they were making for their partner but in their partners colour choice.
I made Donna the aqua bag using Bronyn Hayes stitcheries done in a raspberry thread and I'm happy to say she loved it! (phew.....wipes brow).

The red and white spot bag is the one my partner Jeanette made for me and I LOVE IT!! It's soooo me.The stitchery reminds me of my sister and I sitting and sewing on my day off work.

Thanks Donna and Jeanette for such a fantastic swap and being my partners :)
