Q&A with desna

Kaye Prince asked:
Great job Desna! I'm sure your mum and daughters really appreciated your lovely gifts!
desna answered:
Hey Kaye, it's all thanks to you and your wonderful and easy to follow tutorial. I have since made and other little bundle of 6 for a friend. They are such fun to make and great to use up the 'crumbs' xxx
Pam NZ asked:
Hey these are great! Well done, what a neat pressie... oh dear, another idea added to the "wannado" list LOL. Also love your idea of bundling them together with a ribbon tied round... very snazzy.
desna answered:
Thanks and I know that feeling Pam... I have seen your work and have them on my wannado list... if only there was more time to quilt...
