Pretty Little Pouches

I loved participating in the Pretty {little} Pouch Swap! I had just as much fun making as receiving.

This is the awesome pouch I received from Gabrielle in Canada. She photographed the pouch on Vancouver Island before shipping it to Rhode Island. It traveled from coast to coast! Naturally, it needed a photo shoot at our beach, too. If you click to Gabrielle's post, you will see a lovely clear sky and crystal blue water. I've been waiting for a sunny day and the time to drive to the beach, but it just wasn't happening. This is the best I could do.

Gabrielle was so sweet to also send some yummy fabrics and chocolates. She noticed that we are involved with Girl Scouting, so she asked a friend for a local Guiding patch.

I shipped this Meadowwseet pouch to my partner this morning. I used up almost all of my scraps from this luscious collection. The front has a vertical zipper pocket for cards.

I had some leftover Dresden blades from this quilt that went on the back. I had fun with the hand stitching.

Pouch and Mini Pouch. I get to keep the one that was too small! It's unfortunate for my partner because I like the proportions of the little one better.

The creeping phlox are a little sparse this year, but I love this photo.

Next on the swapping agenda: red charm squares with Karen!

They're beautiful Tina. Love you attempt at a "sunny" RI beach day. The Towers does look nice in the background though - Enjoy!
