Paper bag Swap gift for De

Finally a pic of De's Paper Swap gift!  I still have not found the pics I supposedly put on my computer before I wiped the card clean before my Syd trip...... Lucky for me, I just found I had put the pics in a draft blog post.  How clever of me!  Sometimes I surprise myself!!  lol!  Anyway, its a Retreat Seat, made using the measurements from Natalie Ross's pattern My keeper of all things lovely.

Here is one side pocket using one of the stitcheries De sent me:


And, the other side with the second stitchery she sent and the button:

It took me ages to decide on what to do on the pillow top!  I only had 3 FQ's to play with.......


You can just see the ric-rac trim on the border of the pillow seat......


Turned out well! 
I have quite a few finishes this month....... I cant share just yet, as some are gifts :+)
