Firstly though, I entered a Colour Swap hosted by Lydia. My partner Michell has emailed to say her items have arrived and she loves them. Michell chose the colour blue...and when I had a look at her blog I found she loves to quilt, more so than cross stitch at the mo.
Darn it...I would have to use my $**%$£& sewing machine. Well, time to nip that phobia in the bud. I am pleased to say, that I have indeed done so. I loved making gifts for Michell...it was great fun.
Here is what I made and added to Michells Blue Parcel.
|A floral prim pin cushion with trim|
|A stuffed love heart with patchwork, ribbons, ric rak and floral buttons|
|All together with a blue quilting pack, called Blueberry Crumb Cake..well you can't get a charm pack bluer than that can you?|
So much fun I am starting a quilting club to learn how to quilt properly lol.
Some of my new stash as arrived! Yippee!!
In the post this morning came....well, I am on the lap top so you will have to wait till I get my sorry butt out of bed and can take a photo lol
I went to the hospital yesterday and was given the go ahead to start training for my sponsered walk: 88 km from my house to the hospital. Brilliant!
Also, we had a public meeting last night for my new charity, Castlerea Cancer Care...we open 19th June so that will be amazing xxx
Again, thank you all for your support. Have a wonderful week and see you again soon xx
