Isn't the redwork stitchery beautiful? In my haste to send mine off I negleted to take a photo of it, (stitchery or cushion!) so I will have to 'rely on the kindness of strangers' (ie the secret swap person I sent it to) in order to get a photo of my creation. These photos were taken by my daughter for me. Thanks to Maree from On My Verandah for organising this swap. It was fun and I learnt lots of new things too!

Redwork cushion swap
I received my redwork cushion swap. It was a shock when I received the package, because it didn't come from very far at all! My previous swaps have all come from overseas I think. My cushion was made for me by Yvonne Cain. Thank you very much Yvonne! Yvonne sent a card in which she mentions that this is her first swap, which is pretty exciting! I guess she didn't know to include her email address, so I haven't been able to thank her personally and let her know that her gift arrived. So thank you, I love it. Yvonne also mentions in the card that she is relatively new to patchworking and that she has joined a group at her local shop 'the patchwork apple'. "THE PATCHWORK APPLE!!!!", I shouted. "THAT'S MY LOCAL PATCHWORK SHOP!!!!" I have to explain here that whilst Woodside and the patchwork apple are probably not the closest shop to me, I consider that it is my local shop because it isn't far and it's the one I frequent the most. (Most Adelaide people assume that I live in the hills because I am called "Rosemary Hill" and because I frequent the patchwork apple at Woodside. I am actually a plains dweller who lives on top of a slight undulation in the plains - hence the hill! )
