More goodies in the mail!

Lucky me! I received goodies from 2 more swaps in the mail this week. I already showed you the lovely tablerunner from Viki in Australia for the Quilted Table Easter Swap. Now I have received a neat bunch of goodies from Tammy in the Secret Easter Swap run by Julie. Here are pictures of the goodies Tammy sent.

They included a pair of gardening gloves, a lovely handmade card, 2 handmade tags, some little garden stakes for my herb pots, and a spring candleholder and tealights. This package has me all ready for Spring. Thanks, Tammy.

The second package I received came from Khristina in Australia for the Spring Swap held by Linda. Khris made me a really bright and cheerful tote bag to carry all my "stuff" in. I just love it! It was a nice splash of color on a snowy day. (Yes, we had snow flurries yesterday, and today, too! UGH!!!! When will Winter be gone for good?) She also made me a matching pincushion with 3 really unique pins in it. And some chocolate! It all came with the cutest Koala card. Can't wait to use the tote - but not til the weather's better, don't want it to get dirty!

Now I have to finish up my project for the Miniature Booty Swap Round 3. If I'm late Toni will make me walk the plank, hehe. AAAAAARRRRR!

Make sure to stop in and see Cindy at Quilt Patterns from Seattle and vote for the block you want her to use in her charity quilt. She has lots of gorgeous and FREE quilt patterns for you.

Speaking of chocolate...and when aren't we either talking about it or eating? Drop in at the Moda Bake Shop, they have a scrumptious recipe for a Waldorf Astoria Red Velvet Cake. Yummy!

There's another Quilt Block Swap starting up here. But it's too close to the deadlines I already have coming up, so I guess I'll have to pass this one up. I'm getting to like block swaps. It's fun to see the different fabrics people have in their stash.

On that note, Katie says it's time to get off the computer and get to work on that Booty project! She says she doesn't like water and has no interest in learning to swim at this stage of her life. Maybe in life number 2? But for now, she'd rather nap.

Until next time....
Happy Quilting from Sharon and Katie

As much as I have loved seeing all of your swap items that you've made and received, the kitten on the keyboard is hard to beat! Thanks for always bringing a smile to my day.
