Checking-in from home and My Swap Fun

Hello everyone! Sorry for being MIA for a couple weeks...I got back home last Tuesday and things have been really crazy around here with my job.

I participated in the Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap Round 4 so after got back I had to get busy trying to finish the pouch to send off to my partner. My partner like red/aqua combination and would like to get a pouch with zipper so this is what I made for her - the wonky log cabin on one side:
and the simple patchwork on another side:
I added some extra goodies for her. I hope she will like her pouch.
Please check out the PLPS4 Flickr group for inspiring pouches:

And while I was gone...I had two packages waiting for me from other swap/gift exchange.
I got a fabulous crochet apron and other sewing notions from Meig through the Covert Robin Gift Exchange
I'm inviting Meig to be a guest on my blog to talk about the thoughts behind these gifts so please check back to hear more details. :)

I also received a very pretty embroidery hoop, pin cushion ring, and yummy embroidery flosses from Marissa through the Wild Olive Stitch Swap
I asked my student to pose for me since I love her nail polish colors :)

I will post more about my trips and the goodies I got from the U.S. soon. I actually plan to do some book reviews -- just have to wait a bit for things to get less busy.

Thank you very much for your visit. I sure missed posting on my blog and chatting with my blogging friends. I will try to catch up with the comments you left for me very soon. :)
