My pincushion arrived today from the Scrappy Pincushion Swap Flickr group. It was made by Tiffany of Tigglegiggles,what a cute little pinnie- the back is a Heather Ross Spoonflower mushroom print- so pretty and she put a tape measure into the package too- thankyou Tiffany!
And this arrived last week from Megan of Megs Monkey Beans. This was a little swap we organised for just the two of us, it was fun to give and receive for such a nice bloggy friend
Isn't this wonderful- lots of turquoise, aqua, kitchen prints, Farmdale- yum
Practical too- you can put your hand in, and nice and thick, although I can't bring myself to use it and get it all covered in food- I am looking at it in the kitchen instead!
She also send a great little pile of fabrics- none of which I had, and the recipe for Cinnamon buns (the ones I made yesterday) along with some extra strong cinnamon. It was the cinnamon that started the swap idea off. Cinnamon is such a popular flavour in the US and in the UK this is not really the case. I can only get the usual stuff here and this is hardcore cinnamon, delicious!
I made her this
And send a little pile of fabrics and some fancy little chocolate bars. Pop over to Megs and look at this wonderful purse she made for her Mother in law, I love it.
And now you can have a little visit to the lovely Lynne's Lily's Quilt Blog where I am guest posting for her quilt-a-long. Can I tempt you with these fabrics?
If anyone in the UK or Europe is interested in buying a FQ of the Michael Miller Sentence Structure print(at the bottom of the pic below)- 'Look, Dick. Look, look' I just bought a few yards from USA so I am happy to sell a few FQs, I couldn't find it in UK or Europe ( I think it is out of print now) so send me an email if you are interested!
You can do a mini quilt if you don't want to commit to a bigger project, the Flickr group is here. Lynne is a great host, and there is lots of help available and other quilters to compare ideas with.
