OFW and Lovely gifts….

I can’t believe how quickly Wednesday comes around. Where did the other days go… Time to hop over to Karen's Blog and see who else has been sewing their flowers.

this week these frogs jumped

into my garden.  As you can tell it is a Sunny day here today, LOL

Last Friday the postie delivered a surprise parcel sent by a special blogging friend.

Thank you for the book and Block #646 looks great.


I was also spoilt for Mother’s Day by both my DDs.
Love my cute Crystal Duck which now lives with the chooks on the kitchen shelf.

and the Blue Birdhouse that looks good swinging in the tree.

I also got yummy chocies but couldn’t take a photo as they are all gone………


Yesterday my swap gift arrived from the USA. It was a Secret Swap run by Heidi so I was thrilled to receive this gift from Laurie.

Thank you for a beautiful Zipper Purse in 1930’s fabrics and two nice FQ’s.

  29. The frog flower is very clever. I love all the fabrics people use in their hexie flowers. Lots of lovely gifts received. The crystal duck is so cute. I am glad he has a tiny friend. I am so jealous to see all the sewing being done when I look around my friends blogs. I am enjoying the sightseeing but missing my sewing machine (well, and my husband too) .
    I hope Santa has a smile now :)
    Cheers,
    Val
