More Gifts in the Mail

I recently answered a posting on Anna's blog whereby she would give one of her pouches to the first 10 people to leave a comment.
Well you know me never one to be backward on the opportunity to get a freebie and especially if it was a piece of Anna's creative work.
The pouch is made from silk pods and is one of the class techniques that Anna teaches.
Thank you Anna I love it.

Next is the Crazy Patchwork square that Sandy and I swapped with each other.
This is my square that Sandy pieced and embroidered.
Honestly I have never seen so many stitches and beads on one square.
I don't know how long it took but I reckon her hands were sore by the time she finished.
I can't show you my square that I sent her as she hasn't received it yet.
And Sandy doesn't have a blog yet so I can't link you to her.

And I also swapped a postcart with her from the "I found it" fabric -I don't have a photo of the one that I sent to Sandy but it is the same as the ones I posted several blogs ago.
Sandy also included this lovely Tag as well.

Thank you Sandy--as usual you have given me much pleasure with our swaps.

That little pouch is beautiful! I am always attracted to pouches, bags, etc....or most any other kind of "container."

The items from Sandy are all so pretty and colorful. Hopefully after the holidays I can get back into doing some swaps. I miss it.

Wonderful gifts. Love the pouch and the CQ block is beautiful.

Wow lucky you! All beautiful too! Your Christmas cards and ornaments sound like a fun class. I have so many stamps but I think I will be doing store-bought again this year as I just can't get inspired enough to start and I know if I haven't started by now they are not going to get made!
