A bit of this, a bit of that...

Teresa in Portugal is my swap partner in Ausie Block Swaps this month.  Look what she sent me.  I LOVE it... and I adore the sweet little owl she included.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. And thank you to Sue who organises this fun swap for us every month.  I'm posting my block to Teresa today so I'll show it once I know Teresa has received it.

I was getting a bit worried that my Once a Season swap present from Vanessa might have been lost in the post but it arrived too and it is sweet, especially the little owl button.  Thank you so much to Cheryll, our fabulous organizer, who located it for me.

Fiona at BubzRugz has organised a wonderful pin cushion swap and here is Roslyn's base which I embellished with a heart, watering can and lots of flowers.  I'm sending it on its way to Dianne in Canada so she can add  to it.This swap is great fun.  Thanks Fiona. 

You are most welcome to join the 158 of us who have signed up already.  Sit, sew, perhaps eat a treat or two and enjoy the company of others all over the world.  Thanks Heidi.
