Colour Swap

After a long ride home and a BUSY 11 hour work day I came home to find a package from Wendy.  It made my Day!  I know most people take a picture before opening but I just dug right in.  (they were wrapped up pretty with the red and white polka dotted ribbon in the pictures).

Look at all the RED goodies Wendy sent!  Thank you for all the special gifts. 
She crochets beautifully.
I love the red cup pin cushion with the red pins...

and this red flower crochet mat will look wonderful in the kitchen - so pretty!

and I received chocolates (YUM!) , a nicely red scented candle, three pretty red fabrics, a red seam ripper (always needed), red needle threaders, red floss, red rick rack and a beautiful red card.

I'm thinking...  Redwork with a red pieced border... I need to find a pattern.

Thanks again Wendy for everything!

Friday Night with Friends

I spent a nice afternoon with Jinnie (#10 on the FNwF list) having lunch and visiting the quilt shop to pick up all my various blocks of the month.  I've joined way too many BOM's and I'm having a hard time keeping up.

Friday night I completed March's Black and Tan BOM and started on April's.  Hopefully I'll do a little more on Saturday.

I managed to send My Colour Swap out early and Pauline has already received the blue packages.

I also sent out the Mother's Day mini but I don't think it arrived yet.  Here's a peek

Thanks Cheryll for the label and for running all these wonderful swaps.  Stop by Cheryll's and see what other swaps there are to join and see what all the other FNwF are up to.
