Another Surprise!

Receiving this parcel made me laugh out loud......

Marina spoilt me .....

These are little suffy puffs - some of them fabrics I have just used in my sampler quilt....  I have a little hanger and am going to put it on there to display on my wall....

... and a beautifully sewn needlecase.  I do love a little needlecase to go in project bags (which you may have guessed I have a few!)

The "Make a Wish" hanger is already up in a little corner ....

Thank you Marina, you spoilt me .....

This is what I sewed up over the weekend.  All the blocks needed edging first and that took a long time and was really quite boring so I'm glad I had it where there was company....

There will be 9 blocks all the same and then just placed in different directions....

I used up quite a lot of Japanese inspired scraps for this quilt - so I'm happy with that....

Righto, Gotto Go... Tuesday means sewing day with the girls!


  1. Awesome gifts! You really did have a special celebration.
