Swap Time...

I have been in another swap, this time for a block keeper, organised by the lovely Maree.
my partner who sent to me was Jeanette
and this was the lovely parcel of goodies that arrived on my birthday of all days.
 gorgeous block keeper
 and some pellon sewn inside so I can keep a few blocks flat 
(I didn't do that in mine)
such a wonderful idea... Thank you Jeanette for all my goodies.
 This is the block keeper that I sent to Christine
 I purchased some French General off eBay especially for this swap
and so glad I did as the fabrics are just lovely...
 the red and grey looks so good in this gumtree too
 I added a handle and a purse clasp.
I also made it quite big so it could hold some larger blocks.
 and I stitched Christine's initial inside too
 you can get the initial patterns from Michelle
look how my little puppy is growing... he is now 5 1/2 weeks old.
I don't get him for another 2 weeks... 
I think the whole family is excited about him coming.

A Finish...

well two finishes...
this is what we called the ''princess room"
the family that lived here before had 3 little girls and each room was themed...
covered in stickers too...........
 plus I have finished my ''swoon quilt''
 trying to find props around here
 especially when it is such a BIG quilt
 I have stitched in the ditch 
the plan is to do some hand quilting over time on it
 four blocks across so it hangs down
 and the other finish the ''princess room'' no long exists...

 Yesterday morning we woke up to this
Hubby's work ute
 and tools
 covered with ice...
we have put some shade cloth over some of the veggies in the patch hoping to save them
as they did get a little bit frost bitten... 
mind you I didn't plant them they have come up in the composting part
and they are doing so very well I would hate to lose them.
This morning was worst than yesterday, 
the lawn was very crunchy as I went to let the old dog out of his pen...
about 1* still at 7.30am!
