Busy week for swaps.....


I had a great week receiving swaps!!!! The wonderful green fabric was received in a fat quarter swap... there is enough fabric to make a nice little bag....








The great scrapbooking stuff was received in a "scrappers" swap. I am fairly new to scrapbooking and these items will be a wonderful addition to my scrapbooking.














This was received in a summer bag swap. The bag is made from a plastic backed table cloth... very creative..... and... last but not least I received another nine patch in my never ending quest for a civil war reproduction quilt....at this rate the quilt might have enough blocks by the end of the year!



It's funny that they should all arrive at once... technically they should have arrived over a period of a couple of weeks... but it's like Christmas in August!!!

I also did some sewing this week and made myself a pair of pants... cool, roomy - made from a washable rayon batik... just for wearing around the house when it gets hot..... sooooo all in all, I had quite a nice week. It is soooo hot here right now - 30 degrees (celsius) and I am hoping that we get a good ol' thunderstorm tonight.... but it doesn't look like it will.

It never rains but when it pours. Hopefully with your shower of gifts you will also that thunderstorm. Have a great day!

How fun to get all the swap stuff in your mailbox. I am always happy when there is a package in there.

Hi Debbie,I liked the Civil War Block. I have a passion for Reproduction Fabrics. It would have felt like Christmas with receiving your swap parcels this week. Regards Lyn
