Guess what was waiting for me in the mailbox Friday afternoon? My parcel from the lovely Dawn of dawnhaydesigns filled with FRIENDS Swap Goodness.
Inside the post-pack what did I see?
Seven pretty parcels just for ME!!!!
Dawn was ever so clever and left a clue on each label as to what might be inside. And what was inside?
F ~ Fabric ... a Lumiere de Noel charmpack ... GORGEOUS! R ~ Natalie Ross pattern I ~ Item to use ... a beautiful purse or pouch E ~ Embroidery Threads N ~ Needle case with monogram and the cutest little robyn button D ~ Doll Brooch and Key Holder S ~ Scissor Fob ... already on my scissors.
A huge THANKYOU to Dawn for a delicious array of goodies.
And what did I send in return?
F ~ Four little parcels R ~ Roses gift wrap and cards I ~ a notebook for Inspiration and a little tapemeasure in Inches E ~ Embroidery Hoop N ~ Needle/Tread Keeper D ~ Drawstring Dilly Bag S ~ Scarf
Another huge THANKYOU to the wonderful Khris for organising the FRIENDS Swap once more. This is the second year I took part and I have been blessed with two lovely ladies whom I am lucky to call friends!
How fast does a week go by? It's Wednesday again already!
This little yellow flower is made from 3/4" hexies and is for another pin cushion.
I auditioned some layouts on graph paper and came up with this design. The good thing is that if I go with this layout then I have just the right number of flowers made.
Please ignore the colour layout as I just plonked them down and will have to move them around a bit to even the colour out. I was wondering how a white filler hexie would look but I've always had a green pathway in mind and I do think I prefer the second pic with the green fillers.
Your opinions are most welcome. Not sure yet how to finish the outside off but all in good time.
This top measures 36" across the widest point and 32" from flat side to flat side. Just right for a small round table.
Wednesday again, yipee! Two more flowers to add to my garden.
With all the wet weather we've been having, you'd think I would have more to show for being indoors. I've been up to my ears in bookwork but made sure I took time out for One Flower Wednesday. So it's back to the books for me ... sadly I can't come visiting your gardens just yet.
Well here it is BLUE Friday and of course I'm having trouble uploading ALL the photos.This is half. Hopefully through the day I can get to share the other half. I'm left wondering ... are there so many blue things around my home because blue is my favourite colour or ... is blue my favourite colour because I am surrounded by it? I didn't even start on the clothing.
Hope you're having fun with blue. I'll be around to visit soon.
