May Day Swap

I participated in Valrie's May Day Swap and Valrie was my partner. She went all out and spoiled me rotten! See the lovely bouquet? Valrie made that and she upcycled the pot that it is in.

Look at all the goodies she sent me.

Thanks Valrie!

You really went all out and made my day!

Here's what I sent to Valrie. My Tussie Mussie is inspired by my friend Melinda. It isn't even close to the kind of work that Melinda does, but I really liked how it turned out.

and then I also sent her some other goodies.
I had fun sewing all the flowery patchwork things.

Thanks Valrie for a fun swap!
