2011 Colour Swap

My parcel for the 2011 Colour Swap arrived from Pat of Club Quilt Narromine. The colour I had chosen was shabby pink. I think Pat's done a fantastic job with her choice of goodies.
We had to send (1) a fat quarter of fabric, (2) some thread,
(3) something to eat and (4) something pretty and girlie.A dilly bag, a matching fat quarter, pink thread and yummy coconut ice and cherry paradise. Nelson's got his eyes on the coconut ice!
But the cherry bar is all mine!
The fabric doesn't show up very well but it's very pretty.This is what was inside the dilly bag.
Some bracelets, ear rings, a charm and a shoe calendar. And look inside the bag. Pat's embroidered a lovely little blue bird.

Thank you Pat for the lovely goodies. It's been lovely getting to know you.
You have really spoilt me!
Jan of Little Red Hen was the person I was sending to.
Jan chose green for her colour. This is what I sent her.
Although it doesn't look it, the fat quarter is a lovely shabby green.
I made a fat quarter bag with some embroidery on it and
the something to eat was "watermelon rock".
I thought it looked very interesting. Hopefully Jan enjoyed it.
Here's a close-up of the stitchery.
A little while ago I won these patterns and thread
from Joy of Joy Patch with her "Springtime" giveaway.
I realised I hadn't posted a picture of them.

Thank you Joy!
Last week I won Vicki's (The Pickledish Patch) Blog Hop giveaway.
Now what will I make with these? I'm sure I'll come up with something!

Thank you Vicki!
