Happy Stitcheries!

On Good Friday my swap package to Lyn arrived. That same day her swap presents arrived my home too! Look at all the beautiful presents that were inside, with a beautiful pink rose card.

The gorgeous miniature quilt! The brown buttons came from Lyn's stash of 1930's buttons and they originated from Tasmania. Please click on the picture below to get a better impression of the quilt. Look at the way Lyn stitched the letters.

This is the miniature stitchery quilt I made for Lyn. She really is a person with a very big heart!
Thank you so much, dear Lyn, for this wonderful swap!

Last week when I visited Tracy's blog (Tracy organized the Teeny Tiny Square Quilt Swap), I read about the 'Potholder Swap - Wanna Play?'.
Fun! Especially after I found this pattern at Stephanie's Loft Creations. You can put the card in the pouch between the two buttons. A great pattern to make, so of course I had to make another one, but will have to show it later ...

From dear Gaby I received this beautiful AMC-card, together with three very sweet fat quaters. I will be using those in my Leanne's Hose quilt.

And finally, I want to share this Friendship Blessing with you from Lyn:

Friendship is a blessing-
it's the best you have to share.
The talents and the wisdom,
the capacity to care.
It's being there to lend support,
whatever needs arise.
It's making sure that others know,
They're special in your eyes.
Friendship is a blessing -
and to all who have a friend.
It's one of the most precious gifts
That life could ever send.

Both yours and Lyn's stitcheries are absolutely gorgeous!!! I have some buttons exactly like the ones Lyn sent you, too! They were in my great-grandmother's button drawer!

Just wonderful to be swapping little lovelies around the world. It keeps us all so connected, whatever the miles in between.

Happy Easter!

A belated Happy Easter, Simone. Lovely gifts given and received. Is your stichery a Cinderberry Stitches design? Her knees remind me very much of some of the Truly Scrumptious girls I've been doing!
