Swap gifts from Tracee

A little while ago Tracee over at Quilt Kitty loves life and I decided to do a one to one swap.

These beautiful coasters are the gorgeous gift Tracee made for me, I love them, they are so delicate and pretty. Tracee did such a good job, they are so well made.



I also received some beautiful fabric, I want to make something christmassy with these fabrics, those ginger bread men are so cute.

The sweet tin was full of little chocolate bunnies but the boys and I ate those before I had a chance to take a photo.
I had the chance to meet Tracee last year when she came to Tassie for a visit, it was only brief but we got on so well, She is so lovely. Next time you are here Tracee you must come over for dinner and a bit of sewing.




I made this wall hanging for Tracee, I borrwowed the pic from her blog as my photo turned out blurry. Its a Cinderberry stitches design and so much fun to make. I do believe Tracee loves this very much. Its so nice when your gifts are appreciated so much.







I also made Tracee a project folder, I have made a few of these for myself and they are so handy and portable.

Thankyou for such a great swap Tracee.










This morning I was up bright and early painting the new daddo rail in the kitchen, it looks so much better now its painted. I used Antique white USA. It gives the kitchen a soft feel with the new blue walls and the cream dresser.










I just can't stop looking at it, I'm so happy with how it turned out.













I did buy a few new accessories to adorn my dresser, these cute spice jars and ...















this gorgeous Jug. They look great mixed in with some red bowls.


I'm making a table runner now to put in the kitchen so I'll share my progress of that very soon.


Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you find some sewing time.

Wow, what a great transformation of the kitchen:) What a difference a fresh coat of paint makes. No problems for me with Blogger this morning.... but maybe my time will come? They do like to mix things up now and then to keep us on our toes!

The kitchen transformation looks astonishing. With just a coat of paint!! I love the white changes. It looks so gorgeous. I really like your accessories too. I just got a new 'blue' glass splashback and I don't like it. I'm looking for some blue 'accessories' to detract from my blue splashback!! No going back considering the price we paid for it. I just have to live with it!
