Swap, bag, heart and shoes

This week an envelop arrived from Sarah, with whom I had my second swap. It wasn't due until June, but she told me not to argue with a pregnant woman...
Look at the lovely little purse she made and the pretty needle punch. Thank you so much, Sarah for all the loveliness (O:
I will post my swap for Sarah, as soon as it has arrived Tasmania.



On Sunday Laura and I went to the Stoffmarkt-Holland in Aachen. They had some lovely fabrics there. We both admired the movie star fabric, so I decided to make a simple bag for Laura with it. On the picture, the button is still missing, but I have put on a black vintage one by now, which I found in an old handcraft shop in Tongeren, Belgium.
Laura only recognized Marilyn Monroe, so I am learning her the names of the other stars.



For two special people, I made this little heart from the pattern Dzintra gave me a while ago.



Laura and I both needed new shoes. I guess you can see that the purpose for the shoes is very different. I just love the contrast!


This week I have also been working on Leanne's House quilt that I am making together with Jutta. She made the lovely header of my first three mini blocks.

And I have also been working on a little something for a blog friend who will soon have a baby. Still waiting for the little one to be born, so I can finish it!

A lovely week to all of you with lots of sunshine, happiness and many smiles!

Hi Simone, the felt bookmark looks beautiful in your swap parcel.

I think I would be wearing the sandals rather than the heels. :-)

Are you having fun making for the Christmas in July swap too? :-)

Lots of nice stuff there but the shoe photo made me smile.

Nanette Merrill and daughters zei

Those strappy shoes are fierce. It takes a lot of self confidence to wear those! I wish I'd look good in them.
