Blog Hop Party

Thank-you to Mishka at Quilting Gallery for hosting the Beat the WinterBlues Blog Hop Give away. I was intending to offer only the one give away but I was so over whelmed by all the wonderful comments about my quilts and all my new followers that I decided to add in a 2nd winner's surprise package.

So The Winner of the package posted on my blog is. ......PippaP  at Pippa's Patch    And the second surprise giveaway was won by Gayle who blogs at The Middle Sister.

 Congratulations to you both and I hope you enjoy the gifts which are now in the post. .

It was great to recieve such positive feedback and I totalled up the comments and the Dresden on the Line was the most popular follwed by Bali Pops. So thanks to everyone who left a comment and also hello to all my new followers.

I have spent today making a batch of fabric postcards for the next postcard swap, using my new Sizzix machine. I decided after making a couple of one-offs that I would try to make a series, as once I had prepared the fabric it was easy to cut lots of shapes at the same time.  They need a bit of quilting and the edges finishing but I am pleased with them.

 I also bought a crochet kit from Janie Crow at the show in London and quickly made this last night.  Its a lovely little pattern and I intend to make some more for Easter gifts.

I bought some extra fabric in London to add to the new Indigo Crossing Moda Layer Cake I bought recently so need to get the Granny Sqare finished before I start the new one. There are a couple of patterns on the Moda Bake Shop I think I will use.
Its good to be back even though it was a lovely weekend away !!
