Swap-diddly-umptious

I took part in Friends in Stitching online group's latest swap. We had to make our partner something from Annie Downs' range of patterns... so much to choose from. I sent to Tracy of Thimbelina but she's away on holidays at the moment so I can't reveal her gift yet. I received from Kylie of Country Wishes and wow what a fabulous package of goodies Kylie has sent me:
There's the cutest mug bag made out of Bliss fabrics and petite stitcheries, a bundle of gorgeous wool felt, pincushion pattern and googy eggs (they're all gone now!)
Thank-you Kylie for all these lovelies!!

I'm looking forward to a very peaceful Easter at home, plenty of ME time for stitching and marathon movies, think Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Bourne Series and Pride and Prejudice and I'm sure I can squeeze in a few more!!

Happy Stitching to all!!

Lots of lovely goodness Jo and a cracking plan for Easter.

Am in love with the bear on your header. Did you make it? Is there a pattern somewhere or were you terribly impressive and clever and made it up?

Not just yum goodies, but great movie marathon choices (if you could just ditch the Star Wars... ;-)
We're about to do a HP and Bourne again too. Oh, and we also do the Fast & Furious movies...
