Another successful swap this year. Apologies in advance for the awful photos. My camera has vanished so am having to make do with my phone.
My partner was Illene ( and here is the beautiful runner she made me. Beautiful fabrics and gorgeous Australian animals. This will be finding a home in my new sewing room when it gets completed. Thanks so much Illene - it is gorgeous. I also had a great Australian calendar and a little choccy bar as well as the cute ornaments I've already shown.
Great swap - such good fun.
Would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2014. I'm actually going to sew - way behind on Bonnies Mystery so hope I can catch up a little x

Here are my little decorations I received in Chookyblues Christmas Swap - very cute and beautifully made - thankyou partner. I am holding out on opening the main gift until Christmas Day. Looking forward to it. Over the years I have had some lovely things and I'm sure this year will be no different x

Mystery Quilt colours

Here are what I'm using for Bonnie Hunters latest mystery quilt.
I have a lot of cream, beige and light tan neutrals to add to these. I am aiming for an Autumn theme.
Have most of the pieces cut and a few sewn together.
I am enjoying sewing again. My poor machine had dust on it - clue 2 is out tomorrow. I probably won't keep up as I am decorating 2 bedrooms as well. But thats ok - I'll go at my own pace x
