What's in Today's Mailbox?

I received two lovely parcels in today's mail.  The first was from Nancy in Georgia at Tattered Garden.

Nancy is a regular contributor to the photo gallery and we arranged to swap a signature block.  Nancy's stitches are so tiny!  Even DH was impressed with the workmanship.  Thank you Nancy, and the signature is excellent.

My other parcel had some greens for the collection.  I like the Party of Twelve range, the wide range colours are nice and clear.

What have I been doing?  I've been practicing my penmanship for my next swap block.  I belong to the Primary Patchworkers group in Sale and we've been donating small quilts to the local nursing homes.

And I've been making another fleur de lis block.  Should be finished next week.

Actually, I received a really big parcel last Friday but it deserves a blog post of its own. Next week.


  1. Lovely blocks! the green Party of Twelve is beautiful - a very useful line.

  2. Love that striped fabric - looks perfect for this block.
