I am part of a private Flickr group that is making tea/coffee themed blocks each month … well, I’m mean’t to be, but still trying to work out what I want to do.
But, they also have organised monthly swaps, that you can volunteer to participate in.
I showed photo’s of the pincushion swap here, and last month’s swap was butterfly themed. I love butterfly quilts, have one on the go, and plans to do others at some stage. So you can imagine my delight when opening my parcel from the lovely Kate in the UK to discover this bounty…
2 lovely appliqued blocks
A truly gorgeous needlebook
And a lovely mug warmer.
With most of May being a bit of a write-off quilting and stitching wise due to the dreaded lurgy and subsequent headaches/migraines, I, of course, am running behind on my project for Kate. But here is a sneak peak of a appliqued and stitched butterfly wallhanging that I’m hoping to have on it’s way but week’s end.
