Craft Forum ~ Designer Swap ~ Part 2

This is the table runner I made for Kim in the Designer Swap on http://forum.craftmagazines.com.au/. The Stitchery is from "Miss Milly Flower Patch" book by Bronwyn Hayes. I fell in love with the Fabric and made some matching coasters.

It was hard to part with.
(sorry its in 2 parts but I couldn't get a photo with the stitcheries in it any other way)

Craft Forum ~ Designer Swap.

On the wonderful craft forum we had a "Designer Swap", the patterns had to come from either Leanne Beasley & Bronwyn Hayes. Both are talented designers, and are worth having a look at. I chose Bronwyn Hayes as I had a book I patterns I got when I was in Adelaide this time last year, that I was keen to use. I can't show you a picture of what I made just yet as Kim, is waiting for it to arrive in the post, but I am very proud of it.

Missnance (Gail) from http://missnance.blogspot.com/ made me this beautiful bag it has stitcheries on it and is full of pockets. The colours are great for these cold and dreary days! I cannot thank her enough for it, I LOVE IT!!!!

My favourite Things BOM Block 8

This months block is that of HOME, I wish my house looked like this one, and was somewhere in rural France or Italy, but my house is just an old Police Station in rural NSW, Australia.
I hope you are enjoying and using these patterns, a few have ask about a final product that is made out of them, but unfortunately or fortunately, I am sewing as we go along as well. I have used the blocks for the stitcheries on gifts, so I am hoping you can just keep them in a file somewhere and use them as you like, there is no copyright on them so go crazy, please send me any photos of what you have made out of them. I will be posting some mandala in the next few weeks, I hope you enjoy them, I really love sewing them in varigated thread.
