I think Spring has sprung a leak here...

The weather has been very changeable considering it is the end of October.  Grey skies, rain and cold weather seems to be the order of the day of late.
I've managed to do some more blocks for my SKOW quilt..I am going to focus on doing the applique first and then will do the stitchery parts after that.  I will get some photos up on the weekend when I have a little more time.  I don't know where the time has gone...
Just a quick post.  Life is a bit hectic at the moment.  My husband had his hip operation (at last) and we've just got back from seeing him in hospital.  Hopefully he'll be feeling a bit  better tomorrow.

The Mini has landed...

The Spring Mini I sent to Helen has landed on her doorstep in's always good to know that they have arrived.  So I can now show more than the peek from the other day.  I didn't want to show too much the other day in case it was the last one to arrive and there would have been no surprise then on opening it.

Turning Tulips.. the name of the mini Spring Quilt I received from Danette...all the way from the USA.   We are in Cheryll's Mini Quilt Swap group.  It is just a gorgeous little quilt and I love it. ( I was lucky to get a lovely piece of fabric in the package as well).  Thank you so very much, Danette,  for this lovely little quilt.

Here is a sneak peak of the quilt that I made.  It has to wing its way North West of here so that could be anywhere in Australia, but it is going to ...... and I'm hoping that it lands on my partner's doorstep soon. (I ended up tracing out a second pattern to make one for my Mum as well..)
It is a lot of fun being a part of the swap organised by Cheryll and you can read about what the swap entails here.  The next theme for swapping is Christmas.  Yippee!!
