Lots of new things

 When I saw this cute little pouch on Moda bake shop I knew I wanted to make one, with the help of a dear friend who showed me how to put a zip in, I thought it turned out really well.
 I then got brave and had a go at making another one but this time I made it a bit bigger and I did the zip all by myself. I love it.
 My spring stitchery arrived from Barb for our lets Celebrate swap. Its so pretty, now I just need to decide what to make. I think a cushion will be nice.
 This is what I made for Barb.
 I did a needle case swap with  Deb, from Frog Cottage designs blog, I made the needle case above.
 And this is what Deb Made me, I should have included a photo of the inside, its beautiful. I'll do that another time.
My friend Cathy went to London and she found a Cath Kidston shop and bought me back these beautiful treasures, I love them all, thanks buddy.

So I have lots of new pretty things to keep me happy.

I'm taking a little break from my blog   and spending some time with my family but I'll be back to share my latest designs and projects with you all in a few weeks.

Take care and Happy sewing.
