In, Out and a Finish

What fun when I opened my mail box today. A white and red card. Into the post office I
went to collect my parcel. Oh yes it was my
PIF from Andi . I could not wait to open it.

  Was delighted to find a journal with a beautiful Linen Cover. The hexagon flower has the tiniest of stitches.  Thank you Andi.

Have completed my  Pillow Swap and it has flown over to my partner. Hope she likes it.

Also finished another project for my  String challenge. I am enjoying cutting up lots of fabric that has been in my stash for such a long time and making something useful with it. 


  1. That journal cover is gorgeous. Lucky you.
    Great projects too. You are just so clever, whizzing through so many completions and beautifully done too.

  2. Hello Maria, love the journal cover,linen always looks great. You certainly are stringing things out,the table runner is fantastic. Happy sewing.

  11. Thanks Maria - the cushion (pillow) cover arrived safely. It is gorgeous I really love the detail on the fruits and well red spots may just be my favourite.

    You sure sped through that project - guess I had better start stitching so I make the deadline.

    Enjoy the sun while it lasts Mr Winter has decided that Ms Sun is not allowed here now - it is dull and drizzly. Who needs an excuse to curl up on the couch with a quilt and the latest project??

  12. Lots of pretty quilts Maria! I love your string quilt!

    You are so lucky to receive such a lovely gift from your PIF friend. i am still waiting for mine! I know it will come some day! :))

    The fruit quilt is so cute,too!
