"Friendship Bag" arrives at Kainga.

Hello,

Yesterday I received my "Friendship Bag" from Barb who lives in Canada. I was also lucky enough to get some fat quarters and some quilting cotton. I couldn't believe that it is the very same cotton that I had recently seen in a quilting magazine from the US. The cotton comes on a wooden spool just like they use to before the plastic ones we have now. I will be keeping these for display after using the thread.
These little bags would make a great Christmas present as they are just the right size to put a few gifts in.Thank you so much for being my swap partner Barb. I will certainly use this little sweet bag.
Today I spent quite sometime drawing cutting and ironing for the "Beach Quilt" I have one more block to cut out. Then comes the fun part,working how the blocks will come together.
Happy sewing.
Bev C

Oh how lovely everything looks. I like the wooden spools too, I've got a few from my hubby's Mom. I'm new to your blog and would like to invite you over for a visit.

Wow Bev, that is a lovely bag. Your postman is a very busy person with all the recent deliveries.
No, the "fly" is still here, maybe at another market. That is unless Bonnie would like it back?
