12" Winter Mini & Late OFW Flower

I love being part of this swap... Thank you Cheryll for assigning me to make the Winter themed mini for Maria, who blogs at The Next Stage... Maria & I read each others blogs & I was so pleased to sew for her.

I almost didn't sign up for this swap, then very clever Michelle Ridgway inspired me with her little snowman, cute little fellow he is. Thank you Michelle, he's been a popular stitch on a few blogs...

The gumboot fabric was purchased last winter, & it was fun to use some of it for this:
 I also sent Maria something to soothe dry winter hands, and some delicious winter drink sachets.
Glad you like it all Maria, it really was my pleasure to make for you!!

If you would like to join in future swaps for the "12 inch Mini Quilts", all the info can be found HERE

I have neglected my hexy flowers of late, but I do at least have this one to add to the pile...
thank you to Karen at Journey of A Quilter for hosting the Garden Party for One Flower Wednesday each week... yes I am a little late for this week!

"Bah, too many blogs for me..."


I am loving today at home, it's been quite a busy week for me so far this week, & the wintery weather has me doing lots of blog-catch up & a few house chores too... stitching & a movie will be happening later...
seems the Site Manager can only look at so many blogs before losing interest!
