I'm a lucky girl!

This is the lovely bag I received from my partner Marie
in linda's bag swap. I love it. The colours are bright and cheerful and I love the unusual handles which are tied. It has some cute covered buttons too. The bag is big with plenty of room for lots of sewing stuff. It also has not one but two pockets on the inside. This is the first bag that Marie has made and I think she has done a fantastic job.





Marie has been more than generous with all the wonderful gifts she included with the bag. She sent quilting magazines, scissors, a little angel brooch, cute bottons...............................




Fabulous fabric.............................



A pattern for table mats and coasters, a yo-yo maker, a book on binding quilts and last but not least....CHOCOLATE!

Thank you so much Marie I feel that christmas has arrived early.


Bye for now, Maria.
