THIS AND THAT

So many things I hardly know where to start. I haven't been on the computer for a while as I have been house-sitting, as I said before. Anyway, here I go, lots of pictures for you with not a Ballot Box in sight!!!

First off are two blocks made for Brenda in the PP Friendship Block Swap, Annette did the Dragon and I did the Crane, we used the same fabric to help tone in for Brenda, she asked for ORIENTAL and RED...

This is the Friendship block made for Cathy in New Zealand, she wanted HOUSES, I like to be different!!!!

********************
These are two ATC's made for the Yahoo group swap, RAINBOW, one for Jo and one for Joan...

Postcard ALPHABET swap - M is for... Yes that is a real pound coin on there...
My Landscape Embellished card...

EMBELLISHER made Bag from Di, this is all made in Silks on the Embellisher machine, I love this little bag, this is the front...

I got this genuine Chinese good luck envelope with the bag from Di...
these are close ups for you to see the stitching Di did on it for me...

I won this little runner from Annette's Blog Give away...

I am in a different kind of swap on Cecelia's Blog, we are doing a RED WHITE & BLUE quilt block swap, well I was amazed I got the package so quickly, only 4 days to get here from America, had to take picture of envelope to prove it...
and inside it was all in this envelope - look - it is TYVEK - WOOHOO, thanks Cecelia...
and this is what was inside that one, all these wonderful packages...
and a special one from Cecelia...
******************************************************
Ros on the PP Forum, set up a Quilt to make - The Sampler of Psalms - well, I didn't want to make the complete Quilt, so made a small version, here it is finished and hubby has claimed it for himself. Thanks Ros for doing this for us all...this is the back...
I wrote this on the back...
This is the front...
*********************************************************
I have joined Myfanwy's online class of making Little Books. I am not actually doing very well with them, here is one I have made, it is not finished - yet - if you wish to see more you will have to go to my other Blog -http://jansjournaljourney.blogspot.com/
I am kind of enjoying the class, but feel totally out of my comfort zone. Oh well, you win some you lose some. I shall have lots of little books by the end of the six weeks though.
*******************************
Well there we are, a mixed bunch for you, I hope you enjoy looking at all my pictures,
and a BIG THANK YOU to all my lovely friends for their cards and gifts
I love them all.

That is a lot to digest in one go! I love the fish by the igloo! So cute. Also your landscape card looked really good.

Your landscape embellished card is brilliant Jan I love the colours in the Sampler of Psalms too, no wonder your other half claimed it . The house blocks are typical of your original take on things - lovely. Di's bag is a bit special too.

Hi, I was in the red white and blue swap with you. It was so fun to get my package too. It was fun to see where everyone was from. I'll be checking into your blog so keep up the good work.
