As promised here are all the wonderful goodies that Aileen sent - firstly the tea towel itself.
Then there were packets & packets & packets of beads & sequins & ribbon.
Two wonderful threads.
And candy & chocolate.
This is the whole lot together - Wasn't I an extremely lucky girl!!!
Also I participated in the bookmark exchange on intatters - choosing to send and receive 2 bookmarks. My partners were Jenni in Australia & Kaira in Norway. I am very lucky that I have received both my exchange bookmarks - this very poor picture is of a stunning woven picot bookmark from Jenni (by chance she had done it in my very favourite dicontinued :( Manuela thread & white (I'll scan it later to post a better image). She even sent me the pattern!!!!
Jenni hasn't received mine yet so I won't post it as yet.
The other stunning one was from Kaira in variegated blues & white - isn't it lovely!! The pattern is here.
The ones I sent her was an adaptation of Iris' Eleonora doily as suggested by Marty (see here) and my own version of Ellen Lai's bookmark.
