Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap - My Mini Quilt arrived!

Hi everyone

A few weeks ago I received my mini quilt from the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap!

schniztel & boo Mini Quilt Swap, round 1

The swap was hosted by Kristi over at Schnitzel and Boo and there were some AMAZING mini Quilts created by all those involved so head over the the flickr group or on Instagram (the tags used were #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap and  #makeaquiltmakeafriend) to have a look.

Andrea was my lovely partner and she made me the most awesome mini quilt ever!

Isn't it great?!

I had people coming over for dinner that night I received the mini quilt, so I used the quilt as a centrepiece on the table :)

Andrea was incredibly generous, she didn't just send me a mini quilt, she sent me a nice BIG parcel...

It included, a handmade coffee cuff/cosy

a quilters notebook

and some fabric

Thank you so much Andrea! 
It is awesome and you were very generous :)

The kind hearted nature of others makes me smile :D

Hi everyone

In October I was having some issues making my first ever quilting project (you can see the finished product here), as I did not have a walking foot for my sewing machine.  I made a comment in a lovely community group on Facebook, asking which of my other feet would be best to use, and the lovely Moira from Craftypa & Craftyma came to my rescue!

Moria told me she had an extra walking foot that I was welcome to - see doesn't this kind hearted nature make you smile?!  I was overjoyed and just a little bit gobsmacked! So I decided to whip her up a little gift to say thank you :)

Here is the little zipper pouch (with inner pocket) and the walking foot I was so lucky to receive:

Just the other day Jodie from Ric Rac made me smile at her kind hearted nature...more about this at a later date - I love to keep you all wanting more :P
