Lots to Share Today

The first photo shows two postcards I received from Helen. She and I were partners in a texture ingredients swap. I sent her some goodies to make a postcard with and here is what she made me. She even made me a bonus card. Thanks Helen, they're both fabuous.

And I'm ashamed to say, but I thought I had already shared the next item with you. But after looking, I found I hadn't. I got this last month from Mags. She and I were partners in the FAF fabric page swap for February. My theme is nature and I love what she made me. You can read more about it on Mags' blog here.

Next up are two mini purses that Sue made with my faces. These are soooooo cute. One has a strap and the other has a clip.

This photo shows a piece of felt I made yesterday. This is the second piece I've made and I'm not happy with this one. I know why too. I didn't put enough layers of wool on it. It turned out too thin and there are holes in some spots. I guess you learn from your mistakes/experiences.

And here is my ever so helpful assistant giving her assessment of the piece.

Yep, I think she likes it.

This next item is a padfolio. Sue so kindly shared her pattern for this here. This is made with the first piece of felt I made. I like how this piece of felt turned out. I forgot to take pictures of it before I cut into it. Here is the front:

Here is the back:
