Swaps and then some & OPAM

This year I joined into 2 swaps, My House My Home Swap with organised by Karen from Mrs. Martins Quilt Shop and the 12" Mini Swap organised by our wonderful swap mamma Cheryll.

First the My House My Home Swap, I have Karen (no blog) from Victoria, we get to swap with each other 4 times this year and a Christmas Ornament, just because.  This swap was for our sewing room/nook

This is the lovely parcel I received from Karen, wonderful project folder with little hexie flowers on it, utensils bag, lovely little tin, beautiful Cottage Garden thread, Gail Pan card and a little block of chocolate, with a self printed Red Brolly wrapper on it.  Love it to bits Karen, thanks so much.

I sent Karen a wall hanging from Natalie Bird, Stitching Angel and 2 thread catchers.  Karen likes  read that as loves French General fabric, so I found some to make her project with, now guess who also likes it....thanks for that Karen.  Trying now to think of what next to make for her.....any hints Karen?????

This is my lovely 12" mini I received from Ondrea, sew very cute, and now residing in my foyer.  Unfortunately mine is running late.....Sorry Cheryll......Doctors orders.  I had a scare just under 2 weeks ago with the possibility of Carpel Tunnel, Doctor told me no sewing until I had a scan, did that on Thursday, now waiting for results, hoping that they will be ok, hand is feeling alot better.  My swap will be expressed posted tomorrow to my recipient.

OPAM for March is 

1.  Ipad bag
2.  Rosalie Quinlan Quilt Giving Bag
3.  Natalie Bird True Friends Tote
4.  Cinderberry Stitches Bunting House project folder
5.  Natalie Bird Sewing Angel Wall Quilt

Well that's enough from me

Happy stitching

  2. Hi Pam! They are very gorgeous swap items sent & received... just beautiful... And I do love your mini from Ondrea, very happy colours...
    Take care of your hand, but I imagine it's hard when you just want to stitch! x

  3. I love that sewing folder and all the bits and bobs you received. I am so pleased you like your mini. Good to know it has a good home. I hope your wrist is okay. A tip, try myotherapy before agreeing to surgery if the decision arises. Great success and not as invasive.

  4. Well done on all your finishes Pam...lots of lovely happening...

  5. Hi Pam, just letting you know my mini arrived. Thank you so much I love it. Hope all goes well with your wrists and you are able to do more sewing. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't sew.

  6. Gorgeous Easter MiNi...
    It will add a smile to your face every time you see it I'm sure! :)

  7. That's a lovely mini, we all seem to have chosen to make rabbits.
