These first pics are of the 3rd 'paisley bauble bag' I am making. This is a better pic of the motif. I have used some holographic sequins on this ( another one of the things I would of thought I would NEVER use). They add a nice sparkle in the light. The motif needs to be 'filled in' and that empty pick piece needs something, apart from that...almost done.
These papers and Paisley fabric were sent to me by a member of the Chains of Hearts group. Vanessa doesn't have a blog or website as far as I know. In fact, I don't know Vanessa very well at all. We swapped hearts. We haven't conversed at all, and for that reason, I am absolutely blown away by this gift. This is a tru RAOK gift. I have recieved other lovely packages ( Maureen, Catherine, Sandie + goodies with heart swaps), but this was completely unexpected. Thankyou Vanessa, for your kindness and generosity.
Kay Susan at Smockery has completed another paisley, made from dishclothes. I kid you not!
Hideko has added some paisley to a white block. This is her flickr page where you can see two motifs .
We have also had Connie at The Scoop, Score and Deal
Linda at Chloes Place...and aren't we all glad to see you back blogging!!

Kay Susans first paisley postcard done in Crewel is here. (do you need my snail mail Kay??)
Ati at Ati on the Crazy Road... is also in the paisley bauble bag swap. Here is her first bag and a sequined motif.
Finally, Janet at The Other Side Of the Fence. Janet also had an interesting post about verigated threads a bit before this one.
If there are anymore of you out there, leave a comment and I'll add you too.
Phew, that was hard work. SharonB, if you're stopping by, there must be an easy way to do this roundup business ( other than opening widows, cut'n'paste) . Speaking of SharonB, she is again looking into the purpose of blogs, and their place in todays textile world as an autobiographical record, Sharon gives some well though out perspectives and the comments left by readers are just as interesting.
