The postie has been kind this week instead of bills he brought lovely goodies.

From Michelle in Mrs Martin's swap I got this absolutely lovely topper to put on my dresser.  Michelle has used Bliss by Bonnie and Camille and an aqua solid and it goes perfectly in my bedroom.  Thank you so much Michelle it is perfect.

The front.

I love the back as well.

A close up of the quilting.

I found it hard to think of something to make for the bedroom and eventually decided on a cushion from Helen Stubbings' Simply Appliqué book which has been a great buy as I have made two projects from this book already.

I used Lexington by Minick & Simpson.  I think I need to make myself one or two of these for myself in some B & C fabrics.

The other swap parcel that arrived was my Summer mini which was made by De absolutely love it.

Thanks De.

This is the mini I made I haven't heard if it has been received as yet.

It is a design by Rosalie Quinlan and I have used some Lynette Anderson fabrics.

Thanks Cheryll for organising such a lovely swap.

Until next time happy stitching.
