My post office box was exploding with squishy goodness this week. Firstly, I swapped a spare copy of a quilt calendar with Fiona for A Quilters Companion diary.
I find a diary indispensable at work to keep a record of all the day to day goings on in my classroom, such as who are line leaders, helpers, power ranger etc....All VERY important goings on when you are seven or eight years old. A bit of quilty eye candy never goes astray either!
As well as the diary, Fiona also gifted me a beautiful hand made needlecase.
Everything about it is so lovely.....the fabric, the ties and the perfect hand stitching!
The inside didn't stay empty very long...........
It takes pride of place in my portable project case.....
holding tiny quilting needles which I am using to sew a Grandmother's Garden using small hexies.
Fiona also included a sweet selvedge book mark. I feel very spoilt. Thank you very much for your gifts, Fiona.
My post office box continued to pop out squishes......These are the FQs I received from my partners in the You Complete Me: A UFO Group on Threadbias.
This is my first finish for the year. The courthouse steps block in the middle of the placemat was calling out to be finished.....as something.....There was a need for a place mat....fast.....It's been put to really good use since I finished it.
There's so much more I want to share with you....about Christmas, current projects, plans for the year etc etc but it will have to wait until next time!
