You may remember that I posted about my name tag that I made for my secret partner for the London FQ retreat....... this was my sneak preview
well my partner has now received her package - it went to the lovely Leanne at She Can Quilt. Thankfully she is pleased with it!
Leanne is coming over from Canada, so I really wanted to do something to reflect the 'two nations'. I had an idea in my head, but wasn't sure how to translate it, until I saw the material (see the pouch above) Cutting out the maple leaf for the canadian flag took a couple of attempts, but I got there in the end
I used the red white and blue perle for the embroidery (which by the way, is put to shame when you see what Lucy did on my name badge!!)
I was so thrilled to get Leanne as a partner as she made for me in the Christmas table runner swap and got me spot on. I have been so lucky with my two partners in this swap: Lucy who made for me and Leanne who I made for - can't wait to meet them both in person!
