Swap Angel

How exiting!!!! I have received emails from my swap angel. I have also sent some to mine. I have been stitching and doing little presents for her. I finished one today but I´m not going to show yet. Instead I am taking one of my UFO and show you a pic, I have decided to finish it by the end of September wish me luck. I don´t know why but it reminds me of Great Britain, must be the triangles.

For a few years I have come across some projects made with the selvage of the fabric. So I decided to keep them, instead of throwing them away. I already had a few when in the Mc Calls magazine I saw the cutest tote made with selvages by Karen Neary visit her Blog at . As soon as I saw the Tote I knew I had to do it. So I put everything aside and made the tote during the weekend. Here are some pictures for you to see.

Thanks Karen for such a wonderful design.

Flowers in the Village

And after a few days of French Knotting
I guess that´s enough little flower, I still have doors, windows and roofs to do.

I have been doing some roses. I was going to show you a pic, but then I decided that I would send it to an angel, so I´d better not spoil surprises.

So instead, here is a pic of a new proyect that I found in Mc Calls quilting. This is the center of the wall hanging and still have to embroider it before I can continue. I hope that I will be able to show you a picture of the finished center by the end of the week.

So I better start working on it.
