NNC Friendship Bag Swap

I have said it before - and I say it again; NNC is never boring!
There are always different swaps going on and I was participating in a 'Friendship Bag' swap earlier this year. I received the cutest bag and goodies from Sally in Malaysia!
The requirement was to make a bag and stuff it with goodies - anything a crafty person needs. I also received a cross-stitching book with very  cute designs, ribbons, buttons and labels.
Meet Sally at Etsy too.

Cross-stitching book and goodies

... and here's my bag to Sally, accompanied by matching pin cushion and needle book

.... and here are the 'stuffings'; fabric, felt, buttons, needles and sewing thread.
And yes... Sally loves owls, hence the fabric! :)

Sally, THANK YOU so very much! I love the bag, it's so cute!  
A big THANK YOU to headmistress MW for organizing the swap!

Hi Astrid...would you believe I lost access to my www.Jesus-thelambofGod.blogspot.com blog today, and it is permanent, so I have a new blog, www.followJesusChristAlone.blogspot.com. I just wanted you to know. I've added your blog to my favorites list!!! ♥♥♥

Wow! Love both bags and all the goodies. Lucky ladies. How did Sally manage to stuff the book inside?? And that's a Moda Crackle blue fabric she used! And Astrid, I can see why you need to wait for the goodies to arrive from the States, lovely items! Glad you enjoyed the Exchange :)
