Swap Presents

The sun is shining today - had a good storm last night but the rest of the weekend was lovely.  Some more happy mail arrived during the week - backing for Scrappy Trip Around the World and centre/border fabrics for another Scrappy Spiderweb (one day).  One more parcel of fabric to arrive (hopefuly this week) as well as new outside lights for the house and a hose.


The theme for our on-line group's first swap this year was "Gail Pan Designs" and this is the present I received from Leanne - I love the hot pink Tilda fabric and it looks fantastic with the pretty stitchery and the grey/white spot trim.


My other partner was Sue - I made Gail's "Little Birdie" sewing set (this was a popular choice - I think 3 of us made this design including Sue).


The new sewing area is working out well.  Finished putting together the Goodnight Irene quilt top

Still not pressed.

and started piecing Seville Limes.


Most of the weekend was spent packing the bedroom and sewing room furniture into the spare rooms to get the rest of the house back in order and in the garden with my sister-in-law, brother and niece.  Outside is looking so good.
