Friends with Benefits....what I sent....

I was in Kathy's swap, Friends with Benefits, recently, and this is what I made to send to Janet in Canada.  I also included the latest copy of the New Zealand Quilter magazine.   I used Gail Pan's pattern, Forget-me not stitching pocket.
You may remember seeing the beginning of the stitchery panel that I showed in progress...

This is what it turned into... the outside of the stitching pocket..

Here is the outside in its unfolded state...

And the inside with the pockets in green opening at each end.

  5. Hi Lyn, wonderful swap gift. I love Gail's pattern & your version turned out very pretty. Janet must be very happy. We haven't crossed paths before but I was going through the mini quilt likns in Cheryll's blog. It sounds like we swapped lives. I was born in Nelson & at age 20 moved to Australia, living in Perth ever since. Naturally I fully appreciate your blog name ;) Now I am off to catch up on some more of your posts. Tracee xx
