Teatowel swap

I am one very, lucky teatowel-swap recipient (organised by the lovely Leah). Look at this amazing piece of work sent to me by Leslie (I stole the photos from her blog):

Isn't it amazing. It's made with linen scraps, some hand-dyed and some hand-gocco-printed. And to think that Leslie has a new bub on her hands and everything...

I feel extra guilty now that a craft blogger out there is still waiting for me to send them their teatowel from the swap (if you're reading this - sorry!!). I think I'm trying too hard, and should just go for something simple and nice...

Lara knew his work and I was delighted with their prints, which your beautiful gift.
Published a text on my blog talking about his work and put some pictures, and doing the greatest success.
Congratulations on wonderful gift that God gave you, sorry I did not have financial conditions to buy their fabrics, maybe one day.
you have much success.
kisses

Do you ever stretch your fabric to create wall art? Some of your patterns would be perfect for our newly painted bathroom!

Hi Lara, I've been checking out your blog for some time now - everything thing you do looks so beautiful! I like how artists will swap work or have an exchange - it's a great idea!
