My gift to Carol

I'm part of a lovely group of internet swapping friends organised by Shez and Peg.

This year we have four scheduled swaps.  The first had paper piecing as its theme and here is what I sent to Carol.  I also popped in a small pressie bag for her lovely little boy.
I did love the fabrics I chose for this hexie bag.
 I also included a linen gift pouch adored with a sweet strawberry hexie flower and filled with some goodies I thought that Carol would like.
And chocolates...there have to be chocolates.
Just in case you are wondering what is in the background, it's the sweet little cow who dwells on my front step.

There is such a great tutorial accompanying the pattern for this delightful and very useful Zippered Pouch.
Big, big thanks to Shannon from Very Shannon for very generously sharing it with us HERE.

I'm off to my monthly hand piecing class at Sewn and Quilted...should be lots of fun

Hope your day is filled with happiness
