Craftmad swaps received this week

Hi everyone, I just have to share the wonderful work that I have received in the mail this week.
This Rail Fence block is from Annmaree for our January Sewing Swap at Craftmad
We will be swapping three blocks for three months. Next month we are planning on swapping a Disappearing Nine block.

This is the Rail Fence block that Mandy has sent me for the swap.  Aren't the fabrics in both of these beautiful.  I can't wait now to put the quilt together and be able to sit and remember who sent what.

Kerry was my partner for the Craftmad January Card Swap and these are the wonderful cards she has sent me.  We had to swap two cards recycling something from around the house.
Kerry has used the mesh from a fruit bag on this card and the background was packaging from some stickers.

This lovely image has been paper pieced using pages from an Avon catalogue.  I really like how Kerry has used an actual hair photo for the girls hair.  The butterflies are too. cute.

If you want to see what everyone else swapped for these two swaps here is a link to the January Swap Album.
