Coming home to treats in the post...



...is one of the nice things about being out all day. We spent the day up in town doing various bits and pieces with our friends who are visiting, but came home to a nice selection of bits - first there was this great little quilted beetle from quiltinkimmie for the "Out of the Box" swap in the 6-12" swap group on Flickr. This was the swap I made the candy corn quilt for. She also sent a lot of other fun little bits and pieces, mostly Hallowe'en themed - needless to say, the kids have claimed some of them already...


I also received these two items - on the left, a little mini quilt with a something old/something new/something borrowed/something blue theme - this was from the swap that Kiwi Carole organised through her blog a while back - I made a box with a dragonfly on the lid for it. The little mini was made by Sue in Washington State. Thanks Sue, I really like it!
And finally, a "V is for" postcard - in this case, V is, of course, for Vegetables.
