The Postie’s Been Again, yeah!

Oh what fun, this exchange business could become rather addictive.  Yep, the postie came again today with the last of my mini pillow swap, and again I remembered the camera (something else that has become addictive since I started blogging). 005 Shiree, from one of our hottest spots made this beautiful mini pillow for me006

   her  stitching is just perfect and she even pieced the back, how impressive. Thank you again Shiree  your a star.      This has been such a fun 007swap and I think all four of us are keen to have another go.  The guidelines were very simple, create a mini pillow, any shape that would fit into a eight inch square and using any technique or combination of. Originally we were going to send them unstuffed (think of the postage) but a couple of us admitted to being rather uncomfortable with that, so we stuffed them.  This is the pillow I sent Shiree009.

I hope you all have such great friends that you have discovered through blogging as I have, they’re such fun.
