My new mini.....

Mr Postie came by .....

.... with a parcel .....


In it was my Winter Mini quilt swap from Maria .... 

How cute is Mr Snowy surrounded by hexies....  I love the detail of hand quilting in a dark colour round the hexies....


A lovely scarf came with it too... such a pretty extra goodie ...

It is really interesting yarn in midnight blues and black... the picture really doesn't show it up well...


Thank you so much Maria, I love my new mini.... and it will be on show each winter ... and on those very hot days in summer too when I wish it was winter again!  And I love my scarf too.. thanks, thanks, thanks....

Righto, Gotto Go.... these are the Boys Story blocks I am hand blanket stitching....
