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
