Sweet swaps and sewing fun.

I'm feeling very happy as I'm one of the lucky group of swappers who received this delightful gift from our swap organiser, Cheryl of Willowberry Designs.  The swap is called It's a Little Bit French.

 Not only has Cheryl sent us this very beautiful gift but she is also designing a range of exquisite projects from which we can choose our swap project.  This is this month's design.
The fabulous thing is you don't have to be in the swap to share in her generosity.  She shares the free pattern on her blog each month.  Go HERE for this lovely design

I just joined a new swap and you need to sign up by the end of February to join in the fun. 
Pop over to Sew Happy House and Kathy will tell you all about it.

If the first two blocks are anything to go by this is going to be amazing.

I found out about this QAL on the amazing, wonderful inspiring blog Shape Moth.

It is just plain TOO HOT here in Melbourne at the moment.  My beloved garden is shrivelling up.  About the only thing able to bloom in this heat is the magnificent plumbago and dear sweet old fashioned geraniums.  I do need flowers in my life so I decided to search for some fabric ones.

from fabulous Kirie at Shape Moth.  Thank you so much

The most gorgeous gerbera at Little Livingstone.  Such a beautiful blog.  Many thanks to Chloe.

And these amazing roses from Anj at Snowy Bliss.  Thank you so much.

And the best thing is while searching for these I found three new amazing, wonderful, brilliant blogs which I'm sure I will revisit over and over again.


  1. Happy Sunday Melody! Thank you for posting about my swap - lots of interest so far:)
