Spring Blues!

Hi everyone

I returned from a few days away in our new caravan to try it out- to find a large parcel from Danette in the USA
  It was my package from the Colour Swap organised by wonderful Cheryll at GoneStitchin.  Guess my colour ???   BLUE of course!

When I unwrapped each of the parcels I found an assortment of lovely gifts 
 There was a pretty table runner and a small zipper bag, a bar of choc, a set of scented draw bags and some ribbon and beads.

They were all so lovely -  so many thanks to Danette who has a blog at the Quiltingchemist. 

 This is the runner and the little zip bag on my bookcase in my sewing room - the runner looks great with my new growing collection of thimbles.

I have done a few of my applecore blocks - they go together really easily in blocks of 4 after cutting them with my sizzix machine - and now I am starting to join the 4part blocks together to make sure I get a scrappy mix.

I promised to show pics of my new caravan so here are a couple taken inside - its really spacious -and more importantly given the cool spring we are having-  has a great heating system so we stayed  lovely and warm. 

The side dinette is just the right size for sewing on with my small sewing machine!!

We had a nice break at the coast and it was  sunny most of the time but is cold again now we are back- but away again in 2 weeks to the Lake District after our Quilt Exhibition so lets hope the real spring arrives by then.
Bye for now


  1. What pretty blue parcels you received! I am sure your next outing will be on a warmer note, but you look like you have a wonderful place to travel with.

  2. Beautiful blue surprises! What a lovely place to live while you travel! I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures : )

  3. Love all the "blue" gifts... and I bet you aren't BLUE with them! They are wonderful.
    Is your van a Baileys? Looks fantastic!

  4. When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get several
    e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
