Embroiderers' Guild Swap

This year I decided to take part in the Embroiderers' Guild on-line forum fabric swap. I sent a small bag of fabrics and embellishments to Elizabeth in Queensland, Australia. In return I received these lovely fabrics from Dian in Mt Eliza, Australia.
This is what I made with them. My Kookaburra Hanging
 Detail 1
 Detail 2
 This is the thank you card and brooch I received from Elizabeth. Thank you so much. The brooch goes so well with my shirt, don't you think?

I forgot to take a photo of the card I sent to Dian, she has posted a picture on the Guild Forum Gallery. I tried to download my photos but for some reason they wouldn't go so I will post a link to my blog instead. I finished it just in time for the September 1st deadline JUST! However I was out last night so didn't get the photos up.

You've put those bits and pieces to good use.

Glad to see that I'm not the only one behind on my blog reading....
