The first six cards are from the Surface Design groups 'May Blossom' swap.
Last, but not least my QuiltGallery basket swap arrived all the way from Oslo, made for me by Anne Kari Holli. It's a lovely bag, really sturdy just the right size for me to take to workshops with my lunch packed it it. I love the faux quilting she has done on this bag. It's made from strips of fabric sewn then attached to the bag by sewing them down the centre in a criss-cross fashion. After that she has further defined the pattern by embroiderying large cross stitches in the centre of each section. I rather like this idea and hope she won't mind if I use it myself sometime in the future.
