Four Colour Swap

You may remember that a few weeks back I took part in the Four Colour Swap hosted by Cheryll of Gone Stitchin'.

If you want to see the lovely gifts I received from Barb, you can check them out here. 

Unfortunately there was a bit of a delay with the parcel which I sent to Annie in Tassie but eventually it was all sorted and now I can post about it and show you what I sent.

The colour Annie chose was RED.  So, first I stitched her a red bird:

Then added some "red" chocolate:

Then I gifted her with these red beads which I bought a few years back on the Left Bank of the River Seine in Paris, I have waited and waited to find the right person to give them to.

Lastly, some rose potpourri in a silk bag with silk embroidery:

Once Annie finally received her gifts, she tells me that she is very happy with them - Phew!


Well, have a good week everyone and don't forget that during the week I will be MIA, see this post here if you want to know more.

Gorgeous bird! I am unsurprised it tool long to get to the destination looking at the frame. Probably a little heavy. It looks amazing! And very nice presents too.
