Mothers' Day Mini Swap

I participated in Cheryll's Mothers's Day 12" Mini Swap, and my partner was Danette.  I have been following Danette's blog for ages and love the things she makes, so I knew I was in for a treat.  Well I was not disappointed.  Look at this stunner!

Danette used paper piecing to make the heart.  It looks seriously complicated to me.  Here is a closer look.

It matches my Mothers' Day roses perfectly.

Thank you so much Danette.  This mini is a real treasure.  I love everything about it!

Here is what I sent to Danette.

 It was square, honest!  I just can't take decent photos.

I love this design. It is a pattern I found in a Patchwork & Stitching magazine, designed by the amazing Jennifer Reynolds of Elefantz Designs.  I just changed the word to suit the theme.  It was fun to stitch - I learned satin stitch and chain stitch in the process. Oh, how I love chain stitch!  It is so forgiving!

 I sent my favourite chocolate goodies too.  I do hope Danette enjoys them as much as I do.

Thank you Cheryll for organising such a great swap.  I think you do an amazing job!
