Wool Swap

Our Friends Having Fun Swaps recently had a Wool Swap. It turned out Mel and I were making for each other. This was lucky as we were both running behind. At our NOTYQ quilt show, Mel confessed to me she was making my gift and was running late. I then confessed to Mel that I was making for her. We both burst out laughing and decided we would swap when we were ready. Well, that time finally came!
This is the beautiful wool stitching Mel made for me.
 It was the lid of a box.
 Inside there was some beautiful Tilda fabrics, a Libby Richardson pattern and some cute little heart buttons.
 I'm going to use this box to store my Tilda fabric in. 
Mel had already labelled it for me.

Thank you so much, Mel. 
I just love my new Tilda box.

This is what I made for Mel. I decided to use a wooden frame for a Home Sweet Home picture.  
I also added some little extras.

Thanks to Shez and Peg for organising this fun swap. 
Mel and I may have been a bit late 
but better late than never!
