Thank goodness Easter is over. It is a terrible time for a chocoholic like me. Temptation everywhere and when it comes to chocolate I have NO willpower - lol ! The kids go back to school on Tuesday and I will hopefully have more sewing time. I have loads of new ideas floating about in my brain - time will tell if any will actually get put into practise
Like many others I have taken part in Linda's Spring Swap and I think a good time was had by all. I received a lovely parcel from Betsy with the following goodies. There was also a magazine but I can't find it at the minute.
Wonderful stuff. Of course that tea towel is far too nice to use - lol - so I think I will have it on display in my kitchen if I ever finish the decorating in there. The cushion cover is waiting for me to buy a pad which I keep forgetting to do.
Thankyou Betsy - another lovely swap.
My swap partner was Sudi-Laura and the instructions I had were no dull colours and BRIGHT please. I agonised over this and eventually came up with a kaleidoscope table topper. The purple appliqued flowers just sort of happened. Bit different to what I normally make and it WAS bright. I also included some chocolate mini eggs for her son and a funky notebook.
I have had a bit of recurring trouble with the trapped nerve in my arm so not an awful lot going on quilting-wise. I did get a little quilt top done for project Linus with the leftover squares from the quilt in my last post. I want to make more of these little quilts - I seem to have lots of novelty prints sitting around doing nothing.
Dawn has posted pictures of some quilts from a show and the first one has really caught my attention. I am just off to work out some measurements for a sample block......
