It wasn't long before super cute little makes were popping up in the flickr group and being sent as "extras". There was no way I could just send my partner a lonely mug! I've got a fairly substantial collection of basted Liberty 1/2" hexies so I ladder stitched a flower together and appliqued it onto some chambray for this sweet needle book, complete with Liberty fabric-covered button.
There's a gorgeous Liberty blue poppy print on the inside, along with some hand-dyed wool in a beautiful shade of purple.
I'm not even sure my partner likes Liberty tana lawn, but don't think there are many warm-blooded quilters who can resist it! This swap package will go in the mail tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing which location my mug will come from - I'll let you know when it arrives. There will be two extras soon as well. Cindy and Katie both wanted Vancouver mugs, so I'll have an Orange County and Seattle ones coming my way, too!
