Feeling lucky

I've received some truly beautiful gifts and swap presents in the last few days so I thought I'd write a couple of posts showing them to you.
Christine and I were swap partners in the Friends Having Fun Swap and I absolutely adore my gifts. I was very spoiled.  
There was also chocolate but of course it has already been gobbled up in our greedy household.
And this is what I made for Christine, a place to keep her new Tilda stash. I forgot to take a pic of what I put inside but it was a few little things to add to her collection.

Christine has been such a wonderful and caring friend during my health issues and I just want to send her all my love and a great big thank you for everything.

Lucky duck me. I spent yesterday morning in a class with wonderful Di Ford Hall at lovely Needles and Pins in Warrandyte and had a marvellous time. I also got to see a beautiful quilt which will be in Di's next book and has gone right to the top of my To Do list.
PS The quilt in the background of the picture is Di's Antique Wedding Sampler from her first book 'Primarily Quilts'

Today's LINK is to something that is super dooper cute.
The pattern and tutorial is very kindly shared at Make it and Love It.  It is designed by Jill from Snugglebug University.  Many many thanks to Jill.  Don't forget to check out Jill's Craftsy store for more gorgeous patterns.
Hope you have time for some stitching today
