Stitching Around the Block

The time has arrived.... time to receive back our blocks from the Stitching Around the Block swap.
This is the one we made for Liz
This one is mine
This one belongs to Karin
and we stitched this one for Rosalie.

Today we all lunched at Karin's beautiful home and each received back her Stitching Around the Block.  I think Karin summed it up beautifully when she said she was chuffed.  We all agreed it was a great deal of fun to be part of this swap and we were all thrilled with how they turned out.  We didn't send fabrics, so it was a true surprise to see what the others had done with the centre as no one had any idea what to expect.
Here are my friends and fellow swappers, Karen, Rosalie and Liz.
 A huge thank you to Helen from Hugs by Helen for designing and organising this wonderful project.
