Spring Swap Goodies!


Isn't this little black-bird cute??!!! 
Here are my lovely spring goodies which I received from my swap-partner, Karina, from Lithuania!  This sweet birdie decorates the front cover of a beautiful, hand-bound journal.  Karina's hand-work is just so exceptional!
 

Along with the journal, came some very pretty pieces of fabric and a cute card!  Thanks so much, Karina! 
I just love my swap goodies!!!

Here is the stitchery holder I sent to Karina (made from a pattern by Natalie Lymer!), a matching card and two Fat Quarters in blue tones.  As Karina mentioned to me that she one day hopes to learn to quilt, I included a few essentials in the stitchery holder to help her along!!

Good luck, Karina!
Make sure you post a picture of your first Quilt Block! 
Thanks again for swapping with me!

Cheers,
Mary Ann

Hej Mary Ann,

Tak for din mail, har forsøgt at sende dig en men den bouncher tilbage fordi din indbakke er fyldt ???
Jeg prøver at sende senere igen eller i morgen, undskyld for denne kommentar på din blog, men det er mit forsøg på at nå dig :)

Knus

Hi gorgeous friend... hope you're doing well. You've been doing a lot of beautiful work... I especially love the blues in this spring swap... they will surely tempt your partner to take up stitching/quilting.

I'm sure the weather is getting warmer on your side of the globe just as it is starting to cool here in Australia... well we still have some warm days left (I hope...)

take care - have a gorgeous day filled with creative stitches & inspiration

hugs
Darlene

I love your blue and white version of Natalies's stitching companion. What a love gift.
