Spring

Yesterday I got my Spring Quilt from the Four Seasons Quilt Swap. A great little quilt made by Beth. I also receive a Charm pack and a Pin cushion. It is so fun to get and to send small quilts to Quilting ladies all over the world. Thanks Beth I love it all. ;-)
I have to finish my Swap to night, I only have to do the binding and make the label. Here are a little sneak peek of it. I hope the lady who gots it like it...
I have alos recived the next block from Spring Fling Round Robin. I got it from Marisa and I have to make another border..... I think I know how to make it....
I have got a lot of mail lately.... The fourth pascel from The Christmas Club 2008.Great labels made by Wildcraft Farm.And three Pattern I ordred from Keepsake Quilting.Just somthing I realy needed. ;-) I want to make me A Pop-up Heart Sewing Case, A great Redwork pattern called Fresh Cut Flowers and A miniature pattern designed by Lori Smith. Fit to Frame:Pattern Six. I want to start on it at once.....But I got somthing else to do first, I think....
Here are three photos to show you that Spring has come to my world....at last.I have some Blue anemoes in my bed. Aren't they great. I got some flowers..... ;-)
The Swans have also arrived from where ever they are during the winter.They looks great but are not so great singers.... (I realy feel with my neighbours who lives close to the river.)
And to day I got a little visitor in the birdshouse.A great little friend , a squirrel.He are looking for some Sunflowers seed who the birds has forgotten. If you look close you can see he is changing colour on his fur. From the grey winter fur to the brown summer fur. I love to look after all the sign who tells me.....It is getting closer to SUMMER.
The last time I blogged I forgot to show the pressent I got from Nemo....A little Pin cushion to put on my finger, like a ring. ;-)
At last I must show you what I got from Marnie, my Scrap Swap partner.Great fabrics, a Pin cushion ,buttons and great postcards from Tasmania where she lives. What a great place to live.
I think this week has been great and the postman kind to me. May you all have a great week.
Big hugs from me in Spring mood to you all. ;-)
