Swap gifts

 Now my wonderful friend Anthea has her gifts from me I can share what I made her. We  both love Nat Bird designs so we decided to make each other something designed by Nat. I made this cute little cushion, it was so much fun to make. Anthea is a girl after my own heart and loves Fig tree fabrics so I dug into my stash and found all my pretty fabrics.

 As easter was approaching we also made each other an easter surprise. I made this cute stitching bag. The bunny on the front is designed by Bronwyn Hayes. Its an old pattern but still lovely. Thankyou for swapping with my Anthea.
 I had big plans for easter sewing but a horrid cold has knocked me for 6  so I have not done much at all. Yesterday I sat on the couch with a quilt and  some stitching, between a few coughing fits and the odd nana nap I got this project all stitched.
And last night I stitched a little on my new  tilda project. I love working on this, its just so pretty.  I may find some energy today to do a bit more.

I hope everyone is having a lovely easter.

Gorgeous little gifts! Must be cold season in the top end of Tas - my hubby has the sniffles too.....but I'm horrid....I am cracking the whip and he is sanding and painting. I'll cook him a lovely baked dinner tonight though to make up for it ;-) Get well soon xoxox

Your gifts for Anthea are just gorgeous Leanne. Your Tilda project is going to be beautiful! Hope you're feeling better soon.

Your stitching looks great as always. I think I'm going to start a BOM on April 1st that has embroidery. I haven't really ever done any but I see yours and others and it is so cute! I'll put it on the blog Monday. It's free and cute so I might try. Sorry you have a cold! Hope you feel better soon!

Leanne you poor thing, that's bad that you are sick over the Easter break:(...
The Tilda project will be so pretty, I love those fabrics...
I have been wondering if the bunny is a Bronwyn design, I found it so hard to find one I liked for an Easter project...
Get Well Hugs x
