Lizzie received her parcel :-)





I had some good news a couple of days ago - my F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap partner, Lizzie, received her parcel from me. Thank you Australia Post for a safe transition!



Here is a pic of the items I hand-made. A Festive cushion, an Ipod holder, a cake pincushion, and my rendition of Lizzie's "A House in the Country". Which many of you know, is Lizzie's blog name. :-)
Lizzie has more photos on her blog.



I used a cute house button from my stash as the focal point for this piece, and bordered the stitchery with a woollen fabric. I also coloured the stitchery very lightly with pencil. If you would you like me to share my design with you, please let me know. :-)




Ooh! For me?


I was also delighted this week to receive this award from Anna of Anna Rosa Designs:







Thank you so much, Anna! You are a sweetheart.



Now I am meant to pass this award on to Ten bloggers... but you know what? If you read my blog then please accept this award as I think you are all wonderful! Just right-click on the icon and save it to your hard drive, then publish it on your blog.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend full of fun, love and relaxation.



Hugs! Vikki x

What sweet swap goodies - your slice of cake pin cushion looks "delicious" and I love the embroidered picture, complete with picket fence. Swaps are the best aren't they!
