The latest swap gift

Our online Group just had our opening night for our Bag Swap. I was making for the lovely Leanne and this is what I chose to make for her, Lynette Anderson's 'The Birdhouse Bag':

We were required to have a stitchery OR needleturn applique (no button hole here) AND use a trim (either ric-rac, lace, frill etc) I decided to add ric-rac to the flap:

I am pretty pleased with it as it was the first time I have done 'crazy patch' (though it looked more like a Log Cabin).... and Leanne LOVED it too which is great!



It was a great swap, and if you would like to see more pics click here, and here.
I am off to Latrobe tomorrow to catch up with Vicki and Christine, so I shall have more to share when I get back.
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
