FNSI finishes

I sewed away busily last night to finish off my A Little Bit French presents.  I made a linen shoe bag, 

lavender filled shoe stuffers and a shoe polish bag. 
Earlier in the week I found this gorgeous French themed box to hold the pressies.  I do hope my partner likes the gifts. Enormous thanks to Cheryl from Willowberry Desigs for organising this fabulous swap for us.

While sharing lovely blue themed sewing, I must show you the delightful block which arrived from my partner, Jeneta, as part of Quilting Block Swap Australia. I love it and it is the first block of a new swap quilt.

This week another parcel arrived as part of The Quilted Crow's Wooly Bits Club.  I love the selection of wool fabric that arrives each month.
I'll sew this lovely pattern while I'm down at Blairgowrie for a few days. We are lucky enough to have a family holiday house in this delightful spot on the Mornington Peninsula.  I love the fact that we have the rugged back beach 

as well as the more serene bay 

and winter is my favourite time to visit so it should be a lovely short break. 

I'll be away from computers for three days, I'm even leaving my iPad at home, so I won't post again until I'm back next Wednesday.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Not only do I love this, I need it too.
What a brilliant project, generously shared by Anna of Noodle Head.  Here's the LINK.  Many many thanks, Anna.
