Stuff and things
Lots of lovely treasures again in the post today - the first being a big envelope from my mother, who has been rooting through junk boxes at yard sales and stuff on my behalf - gotta love mothers, doncha? - anyway, she also sent some fat quarters - bought on sale somewhere, and some bits and pieces for the kids, but the real treasure of the lot was all these great bits and pieces of broken jewellery and so on. The pink necklace in the photo, I had originally thought to take apart for artwork, but actually, on closer examination, it's not really broken, just missing a little loop to hold the clasp, and now, having replaced the loop, I think I might keep it to wear.
I also received another round of the Spring Fling Round Robin - this is the one that I am due to quilt. Suggestions welcome - no idea what I'll be doing with it yet, other than the fact that it's going to be machine quilted.
Thought I'd also mention that another round of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap is now open - Summer. Do pop over and check it out!
And finally, some actual work - these two little Dear Jane blocks were done this morning while waiting for my friend to come pick me up for our day at Wisley Gardens (lots of photos of pretty flowers over here, if you like that sort of thing) and the photo on the right shows the binding on the Log Cabin Star quilt, which is now done and the quilt is on my bed, with a sleeping DH under it...
