Lots of Goodies and some fun sewing

Each time I went to my mail box this week there was a little white and red card. I always get excited because I know there will be something nice to collect.

First I received my lovely friends swap from Micki.All the way from Ireland.


Look at all the goodies I received.

Next was a giveaway I won from Scottish Nanna.
A cute bag with lots of gorgeous gifts for a little girl I know.

See the red tube?? It is a Kaleidoscope. I had fun looking in it.

My partner also sent some cute fabric with matching ribbon.

Fun Sewing!!
Our Patch group has put out a challenge. We need to make a block out of rainbow colours.
We are required to take it along to our Christmas dinner. Then next year all the blocks will be put together into a quilt for the “Woman's Refuge” As I have made a few Bargello’s this year this come to mind.

Now he is off on his bike.

  1. Maria - do you have layout on how you put your banner quilt together. I have it all planned but am not sure how to place the two opposing directions together.
