Summer Quaker Exchange Part 2

I heard today that my partner in the Summer Quaker exchange, Vonna has got her parcel. I decided to stitch The Workbasket's August Quaker and to finish it as a drawstring bag.

I also put a few other little goodies in the parcel :)

To continue the Quaker theme, this week it's the turn of Maria Spence to get some attention. I finished off the large red motif, stitched the Y and started another small motif.

Thank you, Karoline for your latest posts. I just spent a very enjoyable couple of minutes drooling over all the pretty things you've made. The bag for Vonna is stunning, as is the new Quaker sampler you're working on.
Funny how watching sports can make you sit immovable for hours, working on your stitching. Lovely to see all the chaps doing the hard work, while we sit and admire!

All your stitching is lovely. I like the way you finished the exchange piece, turning it into a bag and filling it with goodies was so creative.
