I made this for a personal swap with my friend Viv in return i will receive some gorgeous cloth napkins and place mats :) It is the wool i dyed here and made to the Ishbel pattern ( #5!) It is be second entry for 10shalws2010. The pattern will be ceremoniously ripped up and burnt now haha i have had ENOUGH and am branching out to new patterns!

I also whipped up some gorgeous things for a current "RED" swap i am participating in but i cant show those till they have been received and they are currently winging their way across the Tasman :)
