My secret santa swap package took a slight detour.. instead of arriving on Dec 16, it arrived at my local PO on Christmas eve.. how lucky was that!!
This was a secret swap, so Kay & I had no idea, what-so-ever that we had been paired up, by our group's somewhat 'sneaky' swap hostess.. Jane lol!
I knew absolutely nothing about Kay, her likes & dislikes, so i took a gamble and made her something that i would be happy to receive.
a sewing set, comprising of a stitcher's block roll, a needlebook & a zippered pouch.
of course i had to include a tiny koala :)))
here's what i received from Kay..
a zippered pouch full of yummy herbal tea bags and a lovely selection of red & green charms. Kay, was one up on me, coz she checked out my blog and saw that i was making the CC applique quilt, so she knew i would appreciate some red & green fabrics.. thanks Kay!! Lucky for me, Kay loved her goodies too :)))
so here's an update on my CC quilt...
I have finished block 9 ~ made by Eliza Whiteside...
and i'm currently working on block 10
I'm also enjoying a restful week off work, doing whatever i please, ie sitting and stitching, while listening to some relaxing music.. my idea of bliss.
I'm so excited to show you my Dear Jane triangles... i've made two so far.
~ Carla's Candle Flame ~
yesterday, i made this one...
~ Australian Pines ~ don't you just love the names??
i'm really enjoying getting back into Dear Jane again.. to date i have made 32 blocks and 2 triangles.. makes me very happy indeed.
as 2013 draws to a close, i would like to wish you all a safe & very happy New Year...
may 2014 be everything you want it to be, and remember to make time for some creative fun :)))
