Journal cover, gifts and a swap

I finished this sketchbook cover yesterday. ( opened out above and closed below) Not my usual colours but I’m happy with it.
I’m teaching two workshops in Bunbury soon, one is called From Trash to Treasure, which is about creating things from leftover scraps of fabric, yarns, ect. so I thought I would get some examples done. Also The Old Bakery Gallery, which sells some of my work, has been waiting for more so the things I’m making will go there afterwards. I have 2 bags almost done too.

The postcard is from Emma, from the Isle of Skye, who is running a swap with fellow bloggers from around to world to celebrate her 50th brthday. I love the combination of papers with the rich touches of gold and metallics. I forgot to photograph mine before I sent it and also my new ATCs before they went off to New Zealand for a swap with a Yahoo Quilt group. Remembered when they were all packaged up but didn’t want to unpackage them!

When I met Reiko in Japan, we exchanged gifts. She gave me these lovely little decorations, covered buttons, and notebook which she makes and teaches. Also some kits so I can make some. Aren’t they lovely? She also gave me a collection of Japanese fabric pieces and a pattern with everything needed to make a bag. I’ll do that after my workshop in Bunbury. I gave her a selection of Australian Aboriginal designed quilt fabrics, one of my postcards and a bag.
