Return Pockets

Here are the return pockets from my swap partner Sherry. Aren't they adorable and so stuffed full with goodies.
Here is a close up of the flower trim. I just love it. The colours are sooooooh me. Note to myself .(I need to get a die cutter machine).

And here are the goodies inside. Lots of lovely lace and loads of buttons all sewn onto seperate tags. I had only just opened my parcel when Doc appeared at my elbow and before I knew it the pockets were hung on the wall and a little note pad had been spirited downstairs to go beside the telephone!

I had told Sherry that I liked the Fred Astair/Ginger Rogers Era and she made me a little note pad with pictures and music on the covers and one of her fabulous dolls to represent Ginger. The face on the doll is just exquisite. Thankyou so much Sherry. The ribbons and bows and little flowers are so nice I won't want to use them but keep them all to myself. How selfish is that!!!!!
I couldn't have asked for a nicer swap partner.

Thanks for your kind words Mrs A - and I too couldn't have asked for a nicer (or more talented) swap partner x
