  8. Ooh, you have to be very careful with that 'submit' button late at night. It can be fun, but very costly sometimes! Ask me how I know. Lovely swap items, and beautiful new fabrics.

  9. Thanks so much for answering my question. I do enjoy your blog and love looking at your beautiful quilts. i have an unusual problem in that I find it virtually impossible to start aother project before completing the one I am doing.
    I have no UFOs! On the couple of occasions I have had to start something new, say for an unexpected gift, I have to finish it as quickly as possible so I get back to what I was doing. I work full time so completing one item amonth would be difficult for me but who knows what the future brings. At least now I know what OPAM means!
