A Package to the US

I joined Jenny of Elefantz Stitchery Club last year and each month she sends us some of her lovely embroidery designs. When she suggested a swap using one of her designs I signed up straight away and knew exactly which design I wanted to use as it appealed to me as soon as I saw it. Once I knew who I was sending to I checked out her blog - Sherry from Blessings from our Nest - then started stitching and thinking about what I would like to make for Sherry.
And here are the two items that I made. First a little needlecase.

I do love the little sewing machine and will have to sew one for me now!

We were asked to include a second item so I made one of my favourite Pink Penguin baskets to match the needlecase.

And so along with a postcard of the Dordogne I sent off my package.
This is not a straight swap - I do not know who is sending me my gifts so looking forward to getting back to France to see what has arrived!

How nice of you to embroider such a lovely needlecase for someone. I like the blue flowered prints that you chose-they are sure to brighten someone's day!

Hi Lin OMG I love both the little bag and that needle case is the cutest.I'm in sewing envy as all's I seem to do at the minute is photo shop and research for a blog/essay that will eventually lead to an academic poster. I constantly have to remind myself I am doing a Textile degree????? X :)
