Winter Theme Crazy Quilt

My blue and white winter theme crazy quilt is almost ready to put together. So I thought I would post a pic of the in progress shot. It is on the portable design wall for now. I may change the block layout as I finish up the other blocks. I only have three blocks left to finish it at 12 blocks which will make a nice size wall hanging. Each block will finish at 8 inches.
Until next time,

Some Swap Items/Gypsy RR Block

I thought I would post some of the swap items I have received and not posted about yet. First up is the 2nd half of my Goodie Swap. This lovely parcel was sent out to me by Ivina....I love the pouch and mug rug that she sent out to me. The mug rug is made with batiks and the little pouch is made with Kaffe fabrics.....
 Next I did a side swap with Aletta for a Fall/Autumn theme mug rug.....this is what she sent out to me...not one but two awesome little mug rugs. She also sent the cutest acorn....I really love that these are made with wool....Thank you Aletta and yours is on the way to you.....I will post pics of what I made for Aletta once she has received them...I don't know why this pic is blurry and I will make a better one tomorrow and swap it out....the pic does not do these justice.....
 Next is the parcel I received from Julie in the Fall/Halloween mug rug swap....I chose fall as I don't celebrate Halloween....She sent an awesome mug rug made with batiks which everyone knows that I love...Each leaf is just wonderful....she really spoiled me....thanks Julie.....
 Last is a pic of Alice's block from the Gypsy Treasures RR....As I was the last one to work the block I finished it up and it is on its way to Alice.....I enjoyed working on her block and carried the music theme that Laurie had started on the block....I added the violin, the music notes, the vintage brooch on the yellow patch, sre feather stitch and I embellished the silkie in lower right corner with sre and a lace motif that I had that went really well with the block.



Until next time,

A Surprise For Me: RAC: Random Act of Kindness


My blogging friend Cathy over here  just blessed my socks off this past week......I had commented on a post about this boho bag that she had made.....the bag is just beautiful in fall colors.....well before she left for a crazy quilt retreat she dropped a package in the mail......when I got the package home and opened it, (insert big squeal of delight here) it was the boho bag that I had commented on! I was so surprised and delighted to say the least......this random act of kindness just blessed me so much! Thank you Cathy for such a lovely and thoughtful gift from you my friend.....I love my new bag and have gotten so many complements on it already......It will be much loved and used by me......again thank you......

Until next time, 
Wendy
