I recently had a little swap with Amanda for her GORGEOUS pin toppers, she has now received her gifts from me so I can now show you all! ......... She loved the book Sew I bought a little while back which had the Hot Water Bottle Cover pattern in it, so this is what she wanted in return:

And, I decided to make her a little thread bin too as a little secret gift:

After I made those two items, I got thinking....... Maybe I should make her something with an Owl on it........... so, I decided to make a Sunglasses Case, complete with an Owl stitchery:

This Owl stitchery I found online, I just re-sized it to fit the case (turned out a treat!):

Here are all Amanda's gift's all together!

I am SO glad you liked them all Amanda! I had fun making them for you!
On house news.... I am VERY excited! Our driveway was done today YAY!! They are hoping to do the back 'alfresco' area and paths tomorrow (weather permit!!)..... fingers crossed!

I think you both made great choices! Well done on swapping rather than selling - much nicer ;)
