Confirming Receipt

It has been a good few months for swaps. I ended up with two partners in the first swap of my English Paper Patchwork Group on Flickr. I scored these two beautiful pouches.

So different but both so brilliant. Look at the extra detail on the red one...

Completely non-functional but adding a really polished finishing touch. And with the clamshell, look how she handled where the two sides join underneath...

That represents a level of planning I rarely seem to achieve with my projects. I adore them both!

I also received my parcel for the sewing room swap, also on Flickr. The most brilliant bag!
Sewing Room Swap Bag Front
My inspiration mosaic contained several cat pictures and I'd said that my preference was for jewel colours.
Sewing Room Swap Bag Back
Inside there is an excellently deep pocket and the lining is another cat print fabric. Such thoughtfulness! This was my 'big' item and you also sent a small one too. My 'small' was not exactly insubstantial.
Sewing Room Swap Sewing Case
A lovely sewing roll! I can honestly say I have used the bag every day since it arrived on Saturday, starting with a visit to a food market when Pooch snapped these.

I really do love it!

The next round for the EPP Group is currently open for sign ups so click here to read more about it. There is no need to have a blog - just a flickr account is fine.

Lucky you, you have done well. I have never really thought about patchworking circles - it looks really cool. Jo x
