Two's GooD !

After starting another Blanket Of Love in this month's FNSI, I managed to finish it by sewing the binding on last night .... so now I've added it to my OPAM list for March.... as well as into... "The BoX".. for the children's hospital here in Newcastle (Australia). I added my "heart" in quilting this time and I also used the very versatile spotty fabric for the backing... how nice are spots n dots!

Some  "Lets Exchange" hot pads are starting to go out in the mail. But PLeAsE don't worry if you haven't finished yours yet... the mailing deadline is NOT until April 15th... so there's still plenty of time. It's just that some crafters were excited to be in this swap.....so they finished their pad and put it in the post. OOOhhh... I wonder who'll be receiving a surprise in the mail shortly?
This is the Hot Pad that's off to my partner... not in the mail yet.... but soon will be!

Love the D9P - and dots (or spots) are great on a child's quilt. Just adore the hot pad with the animal prints, that is very special. I have all my supplies pulled and as soon as I am finished quilting a top, it is my 'to-do'.

what a great idea with Aussie Animals! I started and got a fair way with mine last night, was winging it and trying out something I saw on someone else's blog (just a pic no instructions) but I stuffed it up so I need to start over :(
