In the post this week ....

I received my Schnitzel & Boo Mini Swap package.  It was ready to be delivered last Friday but we were out so I had to wait until Monday to pick it up from the depot!  I was very excited driving there ....



 
What a lovely package it was and definitely worth the wait!  As well as the stunning blue and white mini there were some rather funky extras.  Admittedly I had to look a couple of them up to know what to do with them!!  Aswell as a very handy straight 2 1/2" ruler there was a Hex n More ruler and a Wacky Web template and papers.  I have always loved the look of spider web blocks but haven't made one ..... yet!


Yesterday there was another little package through the post box ....


It's official - I am now an Authorised Co-ordinator for Project Linus.  I am starting a new area so there will be lots of work to be done, both in 'recruiting' sewers and in find organisations/individuals to donate the quilts to not to mention finding fabric, batting and backing fabric!  Realistically not much will get done before the New Year but I have some plans swirling around my head for then ....

And lastly I received my order of paperwhites.  Many years ago I saw a wonderful display of these scented flowers as a Christmas table decoration and have wanted to make something similar since.  This year I was too late to but them at any of the local shops who stock bulbs but managed to find them online.  They might not be quite ready by Christmas now, but whenever they flower they will bring a much needed dash of colour and scent to the short, cold Janaury days.
