Beautiful things from Michelle

I'm in a wonderful swap group organised by Shez and Peg.  It is called Friends Having Fun Swaps and our recent task was to make a ruler cover.  My parcel came from Michelle and she certainly spoiled me.  




I always know if I see Michelle's name on a parcel it is going to be a real treat. Thank you so much to Michelle.  

Michelle has just released her first book 
which you can buy from her blog and you must check out her wonderful drawings.  She is a true artist.
This is what I sent to my dear friend, Barb, in the same swap.
Back on July 7th I blogged about stitching a name using an alphabet from sweet Jenny of Elefantz

well here it is stitched in one colour with the gaps in the letters stitched in.

I added one of Jenny's delightful birds to the rotary cutter bag. Here's the rest of the parcel

This was a really fun swap and I loved sewing for Barb as she is such a wonderful person and dear friend.

Riley Blake is always a fabulous place to visit for some wonderful free patterns.
I particularly like this one by Lila Tueller Designs which you can find HERE.
Hope you have a fun filled day...I day in the garden for me.
Love
