Easter Mini Quilt Gifts & Goodies...

There is still not much sewing happening here, but I can at least share with you the lovelies of the Easter Mini Quilt Swap...
I have really come to love these little treasures, & this swap has had me make for a new-to-me blogging acquaintance, & receive from a longer-time blogging buddy.

I was chuffed when I saw I was to make a mini quilt for Cathy, who blogs at Cathy's Sewing Room... her sewing skills are amazing, & I always love to see her latest blocks... very clever girl she is...
'Hoppy Easter' from The Birdhouse has been in my pattern box for a while now, so I took my opportunity to make it for Cathy... isn't that bunny so cute?!
I also added in some little extras... a couple of candles... sadly the choccy's got travel-sick & did not arrive in good shape... (that will teach me for sending choccy in March!)
I loved sewing & stitching for you Cathy, glad you like it!

My postie is a quirky Irish guy, who says I am either doing a lot of online shopping or selling drugs, because I seem to be receiving little packages on a regular basis... my latest parcel was neither...Instead it was Easter goodies from my gorgeous blogging buddy Fiona (Bubz Rugz)...
 Fiona has wonderful quilting skills, & I am so blessed to own a little of it now...
The M&Ms are hidden away from the hungry teens of the house!
Thank you so much Fiona for sending me a parcel of Easter goodness, I love it all!



Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' is the co-ordinator of the Mini Quilt Swaps, & if you are interested to find out more, you can go here.
To Cathy & Fiona... Thank you again for being part of my Easter x

I just realised that I have one last birthday parcel to share... my fq's from my blogging buddy Wendy at Sugarlane Designs... Wendy went to Melbourne just before my birthday & when she was there, she picked up these very yummy pieces & extras for me... I had been spying on the green one, so Wendy must have read my mind... Just perfect Wendy, thank you x
(sorry to be blogging it so late, Wendy)
Now my birthday fq's are a very pretty pile of purple & green joy, just sitting happily on the shelf in my Sewing Space... but they won't be there for long!

Looking forward to FNWF tonight... got quilt labels to stitch on...
