I have never done a swap before - and I have been quilting for 15 years! So with extra time on my hands I signed up for a pin cushion swap....I have sent mine off, but still waiting on mine to arrive...but that's OK as we are not allowed to open them until the end of the month...and I am not good at not peeking!
Then Lori set up a Doll's Quilt Swap on her blog Humble Quilts. I signed up and set to work. Parts of the pattern's cutting instructions I used was incorrect :( but I got there after a bit of re cutting and unstitching. I have posted my little quilt off to US, accompanied by some extra goodies. I was going to do a sneak peek...but realised that even the picture of the back of the quilt gave the design away!
Then this lovely parcel arrived for me! Because its my first swap I thought I had to wait to open it....til I realised that was just for the pin cushion swap, phew cos I am not a patient person!
And I got some beautiful bundle of 6" squares of shirting's, a quilting badge and a lovely little pattern.
The pattern captured my attention immediately....I am busting to start making it, but trying to finish a charity quilt at present...then I will be making this mini quilt immediately! Oh and I have my Dad hard at work out in the shed restoring a dressing table for me...so just ordered a new draw handle (one was missing) and found a shop that stocked the tiny screws needed to replace in the draw handles....and now off to order a new mirror....then I will get to my sewing on the charity quilt!
Happy quilting Sue.
