Travelling Treasures Is Here & The 12" Summer Mini Quilt Swap

Last week I received two parcels of lovely mail...
 
Firstly, I'm sharing the arrival of the Travelling Treasures... I've been coveting this parcel of goodness for a little while, because it contains a cross stitch design I'd love to stitch... & there are some other lovely items in the Treasures too. Want a closer look?
 All that, in ONE package!

Here's what I'm keeping... I think Birdhouse Row will be a great design to work on during the summer holidays...

And pictured below is what I'm adding in: a crochet-print fq, a length of fun cotton tape/trim, 3 quilt labels, & a pattern for a darling little Lynette Anderson Designs needlebook.

The Travelling Treasures originates with Debbie over at Sweet Little Cottage, & it's sure been to some lovely places (& people!) around the country...
If you'd like it to come to your place, all you need to do is leave a Comment on this post, clearly stating that you'd like to have it. (You're welcome to Comment even if you'd don't want the TT!)
This package is only open to Australian & NZ residents.
As you can see, there are some great items in it & all you need to do is 1) decide what to keep, & 2) replace those items with something equally as lovely! then 3) announce a new person on the 20th of the month.

The next person will be announced here on my blog, on the 20th of October.

This year I have been part of the 12 Inch Mini Quilt Swap group, co-ordinated by SwapMumma Cheryll. Our final mini quilt for this year had the theme of SUMMER & my mini was sent from the very clever Sisbabe Stitching. I love the bright colours & wavy quilting!
Can't beat the ubiquitous Aussie summer footwear!
Thank you so much Sisbabe!

*~* Happy Wednesday Everyone *~*
