can chase away the blues... that should be a song!
Well it has been a week and a half. I received the names of my swap partners for the COLOURS and FRIENDS swaps. For the colours I have Judit in Hungary and for the friends swap I have Oddbjorg in Norway. Talk about going around the world! I have added their blogs to my list. Today I went out shopping to buy the fabrics that I will be using for the gifts I will make. Judit and Oddbjorg have very different colour choices so I really enjoyed picking fabrics for them. I have also made a start on a project each which will have to stay under wraps for now except for some sneak peaks maybe?
Maree at 'on my verandah' is organising a Christmas swap -haven't jumped in yet but the sign up is by September 1st.
Seeing as I can't show you my fabrics I will show you my progress on my flower garden!
Three new flowers this week...
and the top so far....
Tonight my 6 yo twin nieces are here and no 1 son will be taking them home later to babysit them. They were fascinated with my hexies flowers and I let them play with the made flowers in my tin. They spread them all over the lounge floor. It is nice to have little girls here for a change. They are identical but one wears pink and the other purple to tell them apart, they are just gorgeous!
And just to finish off my post here is a post of Princess Maisie. I was at the computer and turned around to find her sprawled out on the couch on a crochet spread that my nanna made. I didn't have the heart to just put it in a cupboard so for now it will be enjoyed over the couch.
Have a great weekend.
