Look What I Got

Yes - my Dresden plate swap gift arrived - from the lovely Peg, and it's just so beautiful and I was so  excited.  Peg - you are so super organised. Dare I say I am still sewing mine. But I couldn't wait to share it with you.
How beautiful is my gorgeous sewing folder, and so lovely and spacious to hold all my bits and pieces for a day's sewing. I absolutely LOVE it Peg. Thankyou so very, very much. And if that wasn't enough -
Peg also included some yummy caramel Lindt chocolates (yum) and beautiful lavender soap. Plus a gorgeous Marg Low pattern AND kit for me to make the cutest bag and sachet.
And I just had to show you the inside - nice big roomy pockets. Love the fabrics. Peg I'm thrilled, thankyou I just loved my beautiful sewing bag. Now I had better get back to sewing my dresdens.

Who says size doesn't matter obviously didn't read the fine print and for their first ever Dresden plate buy a pattern where the templates are 1 1/2" X 2 1/2" ahhhhhhhhh, (not forgetting the template is still missing).
But not one to shy away from a challenge and not wanting to be the "weak link" in the swap group it was head down and bum up and after a bit of grrrrr and some double strength coffee I ended up with this...
I did make the other half and it's smaller than the scissors I was using!!  But I am sitting here a little happy with myself.  That's all I can show you the rest needs to be a secret for now.
P.S. Hey Peg who's a clever girl lol.
