Redwork goodies!! Thank you!!

Maree from "On My Verandah" hosted a redwork cushion swap.

I signed up as soon as I found out about it! Wouldn't you know it, I had just enjoyed making a redwork cushion myself!! Actually, I made 2 the same. That's how much I liked it!! LOL!!

So, I kept one and posted the other one off to New Zealand...

I had the most wonderful surprise in a LARGE parcel!!


A big present - my cushion!! Now, this angel just needs to plant my bulbs!! LOL!!

She could very well be me, she has a handbag!! This cushion is so gorgeous... look at the chenille on the sides!!


But wait, there's more in the box!!

What is it? Oh my goodness!! A big red mug, cherry ripe (Mmm, ate that straight away thank you....), ric rac and threads... I guess my gardening angel was reading my blog and knows how much I love ric rac, stitching and chenille!! LOL!!



Here is the back of the cushion.... the buttons are so sweet!!





Guess who made my present??? I am honoured to have received this special gift from Maree arch-angel of swapping herself.
Thank you so much Maree. I really enjoyed this swap, what fun! Now, back to her blog to read what other people have said about the swap!!!
