A nice variety of fabrics.
I also received this.
My all time favourite fabric Scrumptious in a layer cake from a family friend. Haven't decided yet what to make but if anyone has a layer cake pattern to suggest I am open to ideas.
This is what my parents gave me.
It isn't a very good photo but it is a patchwork pendant. They got it from Lynette Anderson A Little Quilt Shop if you want to have a look.
My parents also painted my bedroom while I was away.
Now for the swaps.
Just before I went to Darwin I went to the Mill Rosie group meet.
I made this sewing set by Gail Pan with April Showers there is a pin cushion, needle case, small bag and pouch with some extra stitching goodies. Barb received my parcel and she was very pleased with it.
This is what I received made by Marg.
A thread catcher I had always intended to make one of these but now I don't have to. How good does my machine look after it's service. It sounds much better too. They found a pin in there somewhere so I am glad I got it done. Another job my parents did for me whilst I was on holidays aren't they great.
The other swap I am in is Mrs Martin's My House My Home swap. This time It was the bathroom/laundry.
This is what I made.
I made some Scallop hand towels which was a free tutorial from the Fat Quarter Shop. I added a nail file and some soap to the parcel.
This is what I received from Michelle.
Two hand towels and a peg bag. Michelle used Bliss by Bonnie and Camille and I just love them. I have already put the towels to good use.
Another lot of photo overload but so much has been happening.
I am joining Choockyblue's birthday celebrations this weekend. I am working on my Puddle Jump quilt top and some secret sewing for upcoming swaps.
Hope you have a fun stitching weekend.
