I'm A Cover Girl!

My on-line Angels and Mortals group has just had a Redwork Swap. My angel turned out to be none other than the lovely Michelle of Rag Tag Stitchin'. Wasn't I excited when I saw her name on the back of the envelope!
Inside was this beautiful sewing kit. On the front was my initial beautifully embroidered. 
Inside were some lovely goodies. Scissors in a keeper, embroidery thread, buttons, lace motif, an unpicker and a matching pin cushion.
Isn't this design just lovely!
The Scissor Keeper.
 Michelle also added a couple of her patterns and some yummy lollies.
You may wonder why the title of this post is "I'm a cover girl". Well, my sewing kit is the one pictured on Michelle's new "Stitcher's Alphabet" pattern.

"Warm Cinnamon Tea" pattern.
My mortal was Tarnyia. I made Tarnyia this wall hanging.
This is a design shared by Kerryanne of
Shabby Art Boutique by Woodberry Designs.
Thank you Michelle for my lovely
package of gorgeous goodies!
Thank you also to Maree for organising this fun swap.

Please excuse the different fonts and sizes. I've been trying to do this post for two days but Blogger isn't behaving for me. I've even had to go to Internet Explorer just to be able to post!
