The parcel mail seems to finally be starting to flow again in my direction. Things I have sent out seem to be arriving at their destinations quite promptly, but I am still waiting for a couple of things that have been coming to me since June. Let me show you what I did get this last week ….
Firstly, these six inch squares. I joined the 6 inch block swap last month and so far I love it. The smaller blocks are easy to make with material from my mountain of scraps and they turn out quite cute. We swap two blocks a month in this group. Here are the blocks I received from Sue. Can you tell I’m going for hot colours in this one
Wendi is from Florida so she sent me a bit of Florida beach time. Doesn’t the beige fabric look like real sand?! She also sent a really cute needle case and a couple of skeins of embroidery thread – something that I sorely need.
And finally my pincushion top from the Round Robin has made it home. Marina had sent it a long time ago and was getting anxious about it’s whereabouts….but it was just Canada Post being slow.
I asked for a garden theme and look what I got: flowers - a whole wheelbarrow full of flowers - bunnies, butterflies and bluebirds. Let me put the photo the other way up so you can see that nest of bluebirds clearly.
I finished the first of the stitchery samplers last night.
The next one is backstitch. Happy stitching to me!
