One Flower Wednesday

Wednesday again so it's time to link up to lovely Karen at Journey of a Quilter for One Flower Wednesday.  I'm back making hexie flowers for my Confetti Quilt.

I received 4 lovely flowers from my November partner, Jane K, in the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap.  Thank you very much, they will look perfect in my garden.

Today is the last day to enter my Birthday Give-away.  If you have not entered yet, go to the post on Feb 3rd and you could win a $25 gift voucher to Jane's wonderful on-line shop.  Want it, Need it, Quilt.

I wanted to share the lovely goodies sent to me by Sue B of Quilted Hugs today.  Gorgeous fabric, sweet little owls and one of her fabulous selvage bookmarks.  Isn't the card sweet too?  Thank you, Sue

This delightful gift from Wendy at Charlotte's Web arrived yesterday and bought a big smile to my face.  It is an apple jacket and as Wendy says it is a piece of whimsy.  I adore it and will definitely be taking it out and about with me to keep my daily apple safe.

And this fabulous bundle of goodies arrived from Sandy.  Three adorable fabrics from my favourite Ruby range, a gorgeous notepad and the sweetest teddy buttons imaginable.

Lucky, lucky me.
