GDITC swap gifts

Working on Foxly Village by Natalie Bird 
Just Noticed both of my accessories were swaps from Girls Day In The Country.... the needle case from Inca last year and the pin cushion from Dawnie this year.
This is the beautiful pin cushion Dawnie made for the swap this year and I was lucky enough to get it. Love your work Dawnie.

Finished Already

So pleased to say I have finished my 2017  Girls Day in The Country project by Bonnie Sullivan .
I love this cute little sewing basket which used to be a bamboo steamer... 

I really love the fact that the base fabric was a piece of a 1930's quilt from America. Very old quilts are very difficult to get hold of here in Australia.  I hope on my America visit I get to see some.

While I was sewing the wool applique onto this I was thinking....

Who was snuggled under this quilt, where was it made?  What was the person like who made it.? Where did the fabrics come from??  May be you could even get DNA from it and find out?????


2 layers for storing sewing goodies  with a little wool lining.
Very cute lashing on the sides - not a cheap steamer
Lovely little saying
Inside the lid is a little pin cushion.
