Purchases and swap

As a lucky regular visitor to the Home Patch, I didn't have a very long shopping list yesterday. Topped up a couple of favourite fabrics, two secret fq, some pelon and walnut shells, and cute little labels. And another Anni notepad, very good for the gift box.


We also had a little swap of Make it, Bake it or Fake it. I was lucky enough to receive from the lovely, prolific Peg. A cute covered notebook, and some Lindt chocolate (yum), all wrapped in some beautiful fabric.

What do you think I made? A little French General zipper bag of course, and I was very happy that Anita picked it out. It will go well with the little purse I made to match her bag!

It is just too hot today, and Summer hasn't even started. I hope you're keeping cool (or warm) wherever you are.
