Swap Received

Look what was waiting for me when I got home from holiday's last night....isn't it pretty?
This parcel was sent to me by Jo from Lilly Pilly as part of the Friends in Stitching Hatched and Patched swap and she has been waiting patiently for me to return home to open it.
I'm surprised I managed to wait long enough to take a photo before ripping it open!

Inside was a beautiful bag made from the book "In the life of a Bag" which I've been eyeing off for a while....

With perfect little stitcheries....

And plenty of space for important things like books....

And the cutest little matching bookmark that was put to work straight away....

Jo has done a wonderful job making them and the colours she chose are just lovely....they're so ME!
Thankyou so much Jo....I adore them!

Until next time....
