A Wonderful Week

I hope everyone had a fantastic and safe Easter break.
I had a really great week. All the family got together over the holidays with lots of love and laughter filling our home. I also stole a little bit of time to catch up on some sewing and even the mailman played his part by delivering a great package from my partner Pat. Leona paired us up in her "Mug Rug" swap and Pat certainly spoilt me. Look at what Pat sent me.... I'm soooo lucky! ThAnKs PaT... big time!!!!!
Beautiful & colourful mug rug!
Plus ALL this !
See.... I told you I was LuCkY !
As you probably know I have a "Lets Exchange" going to swap a kitchen hand towel. Well, I noticed that most of my towels in my kitchen were looking tired so I thought I would replace them AND  work out the pattern size to make the quilted towel topper for my partner, by practising on mine. I purchased a towel, cut it in half and topped the first one..... no... it was too long... try again on the other... yep... perfect size. Now I can make one for  ???  and send it off next week.
How are all the "exchangers" going? 
Creating mini masterpieces? I bet you all are!

Just practising !!!
I also received my block from Terri in "Quilting Block Swaps Australia" and am very HaPPy with it... so ThAnK YoU, Terri. I've added it to my box of blocks which are starting to add up. I'll have a beautiful quilt before too long I'm sure! Its a "Bear Paw" block in Autumn tones.... soooo pretty!

This was the little peek of the block I showed to Melody... just in case she was watching at the time... but now it has arrived at her home so here is the complete block.......
Apparently she likes OwLs...?
And Melody LiKeD it too !!!!   yippeee.....

The "applique" CD's will be posted to the winners tomorrow. I hope you can use the templates... remember they are NOT a commercial product and are NOT for sale... but I hope you enjoy them!
Congrats to:  Shez, Carolyn, Julie and Donna.
