The "Dishwasher" Post


Yep, this post is like the dishwasher... it contains all sorts of things...

My Christmas Angel is all finished... aren't her wings so pretty... but now I am wondering what to do with her... well I have a few months to decide...

sorry I just could not get a good pic...





She is actually stitched on white, but for some reason I can't capture that...












Her sleeves have a pretty vine
& berry detail...
The three pink shades of her dress are shown off beautifully by the black detail stitching

I have started work on my Mother's Day mini quilt for the 12" Mini Quilt Swap... it's the first time I've done this swap... I enjoyed the planning... and now am enjoying the making...
Darn, it seems I have been to the BubzRugz school of photography!

*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*


If you opted for BLUE colours in the Colour Swap Of 4 Items, this little fellow could be on its way to your home... I really loved putting this parcel together...
I sent him off with Mr Postie this morning...




*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
Lastly, thanks to my hexy-making friend Danette - Quilting Chemist have been inspired to make a couple of flowers for One Flower Wednesday... it's been a while since I made one...
Don't you love the pretty spots?!

Oh wait, there is some news just in.... I have had two giveaway wins in as many weeks - this morning Danette has emailed to let me know I won a Charm Pack prize in her "Two Year Blogoversary Giveaway"... and last week I had a win over at Vickie's Crafting...

Methinks I had better hit the publish button before I think of anything else to write here...
