Wow, I can't believe it is nearly a week since I last posted. I don't know where the time goes, maybe in trying to keep sane leaving in a building site!
In the last few weeks, I received quite a few lovely goodies and sent some away too. Let's have a look at what have been flying in and out of our house!
First I received a lovely wall hanging from Karin in Sweden from the Modern She Made Swap. I asked for a wintry theme in blues and white so her mini quilt was perfect. Look at the gorgeous star quilting too!
I also received a little parcel from Kris.
I finished my ornament last week for the London Modern Quilt Guild Christmas Ornament swap. The meeting was on Sunday but sadly I couldn't attend. With the on-going never-ending building work, we had to sort out the garage to make some space for the hot water tank and of course we are still without a kitchen or main bathroom, which doesn't make life easy in the midst of the winter with 3 kiddos! So my little bird flew to Amy who kindly gave it to my partner. I took inspiration from Laurraine at Patchwork Pottery for my birdie. I really like it! Hope my partner did too! And that was my last OPAM for November!
November was my month in the Bee Weave It or Not and I asked for black and white blocks with a middle strip in a solid colour and a grey background. I must admit I copied Deb's idea in the Modern Minx Bee. When I joined the bee, I instantly decided I would ask for a black and white scheme but I really like the idea of a pop of colour like Deb's asked for in her blocks. I have now received 6 lovely blocks from Nydia, Melanie and Pam. I should still receive 16 more blocks!
And I also sent my October (!) flowers to Gemma for the Inchy Hexie Swap.
