Swap Time...

I have been in another swap, this time for a block keeper, organised by the lovely Maree.
my partner who sent to me was Jeanette
and this was the lovely parcel of goodies that arrived on my birthday of all days.
 gorgeous block keeper
 and some pellon sewn inside so I can keep a few blocks flat 
(I didn't do that in mine)
such a wonderful idea... Thank you Jeanette for all my goodies.
 This is the block keeper that I sent to Christine
 I purchased some French General off eBay especially for this swap
and so glad I did as the fabrics are just lovely...
 the red and grey looks so good in this gumtree too
 I added a handle and a purse clasp.
I also made it quite big so it could hold some larger blocks.
 and I stitched Christine's initial inside too
 you can get the initial patterns from Michelle
look how my little puppy is growing... he is now 5 1/2 weeks old.
I don't get him for another 2 weeks... 
I think the whole family is excited about him coming.
