Easter Mini, surprise Post and Blocks.

Our fabulous Swap Mum Cheryll had run an Easter Mini Swap and De from Re- De- Zines was my surprise partner.. 

DE sent me lovely Easter Mini that arrived on my return from the Big Smoke, looks great in my frame.


my partner was Fiona from Bugz Rugz and this is what I sent her.


there was also a surprise pressie from Cheryll. I had won last month’s FnwFs and missed the post about it as I have had computer issues.


Cheryll sent a  Sweet Little Bag Pattern…Thank you to both ladies for my nice gifts.

I would like you to meet “Karl”.  He is No 15   in the free Owl BOM. Just love digging through my scrap box to make each Owl.


March Swap Blocks in "Aussie Swap" organized by Swap Mum Sue.
Karen was my partner for April and these are the blocks I sent.


Here is the lovely Block I received from Karen.. 


Must away and get ready for a beach walk.
