Surprises in Today's Post

What a great start to the day, went to check the mail and I had some lovely surprises.

First of all there was a bag from the Secret Tote Bag Swap, my secret partner was Melanie from Thepatchworkrobin,  all the way over in England, here is a photo of the lovely bag she made for  me:-

Next surprise were some blocks, the first ones were from Elizabeth, who made these beautiful ones

Next parcel I opened was from Narelle, she made a rwelve inch one and included a pattern for an armchair caddy to keep all my bits and pieces handy when sewing in a comfy chair.

What a lovely start to the working week.

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon

Possum Magic


First of all I have joined a group called Possum Magic, we are group of eight from Australia and New Zealand.

We are in a Round Robin Improv, whereby each of us,  make a centre block and then itmis mailed onto the next person to add a border, until all eight of us have added a border, should take almost a year!

Here is my block, it has eighty (80) different fabrics, it is a version of Lurline's Place, scrappy dresden block and the centre of my block is made of nineteen fussy cut hexies, I got the idea for the centre from this site

Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon
