Giving and receiving

I don't have too much sewing to show you, as I have been away with my husband for a couple of nights, whilst our boys are on the County Youth Wind Orchestra tour to Austria. What I do have to show is my giveaway win from Jan at Isisjem. I am not known for my winning abilities (I know statistics come into it but I still don't normally win) however look what was waiting for me when I returned home on Saturday evening.



This gorgeous purse is brimming full of lovely scraps. I always think that other people's scraps are better than mine so I was delighted to receive them. The pinny is just lovely too as I don't think that you can ever have too many. Thanks Jan for such a lovely package.

This week is also posting week for the Frame Purse swap. I am well prepared and have my purse already wrapped and ready to send. But where is is going to.... watch this space!
I have all the windows open as the sun is shining brightly and it is hot. I am going to spend the afternoon sewing my BQS3 quilt as I know that time will be tight in August. The boys return tomorrow and then my time for sewing will vanish!
Enjoy the sun if it is shining where you are.

  3. I also think everyone else's scraps are better. Probably because I haven't been staring at them for what feels like years trying to decide how to use them up :)

  4. Glad it all arrived safely and you liked it! I really should wrap up my framed purse and then it'll feel like it's that little bit closer to sending time!
