Spring/aster Exchange 2014

Hello my friends.
Time for another visit with me.
I joined Terri`s Spring/Easter Exchange.
My partner is Annette of
This is what I sent her:
For Spring a `Project Bag` I made from Anni Downs 
  book `The Simple Life`, 
This`Happy Easter` stitchery with millhill beads as a little cushion.
I used the same threads except Sampler Thread `portabella I change to 
Sampler Thread woodsmoke
 The pattern was free  from `The Nebby Needle 2014`,
Two caramel chocolate rabbits
and as I was late sending I added a block roll.
In with the Easter card I added a `Cottage Garden Thread`
but with hurrying to wrap forgot to take a photo!

This is the bag showing the outside opened. 

This is the inside showing needle pages
and the ties to the draw string bag.

I flipped the draw string bag over to show
two pockets,one that is covered with a button to close.

I hope Annette enjoys using her gifts and of course the eating the chocolate bunnies.
I was sent from Annette a delightful 
` Thank you` email which brought a smile and made my day.
Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog.
These messages are like we have had a visit.
Happy Stitching,
