Friends with Benefits Swap

OMG I feel so much love from a gorgeous lady I have not even met.

Kathy from Sew Happy House hosted a swap and not being too familiar with swaps I decided to have a go and join up. I am so glad I did. I was paired up with the gorgeous Leanne.

Today I received my parcel from Leanne, it is so exciting to get parcels as it doesn't happen often.  Bridie wanted me to open it as soon as I walked in the door. I just had to!

I found a lovely note from Leanne along with a wrapped gift.

After reading the note I opened the parcel.  OMG I feel the frienship!  This is what Leanne made for me!  A friendship wall hanging. The stitches are so small and neat, the fabrics are devine!

I also was given some gorgeous charm squares. I love the colours in the range and look forward to using them in a project very soon. All ideas are welcome!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Leanne for the gorgeous gifts and thank you Kathy for hosting such a fabulous swap! I will be in the look out for future swaps.

Tonight I finished the binding on one of my Jelly Roll quilt. Those final stitches are amazing to do! Can't wait to get the second quilt quilted and ready to bind!

I love my Aldi coffee machine and Kylie went shopping for me and sent me a parcel of a variety of coffees.  Yummmooo I am so spoilt.

Thank God for the gift of friends seen, unseen, near and far!

Until next time...
