The postman cometh!

The postman was most welcome today!
He brought me two lovely surprises. The first was the lovely table topper that I won on Peg's blog. I admire the lovely quilts and throws that she makes so much and was tickled pink to have won. As it happened as it arrived I had just cleared the table and was looking for a doilie to put on it. Now that is what I call timing!

Isn't is just wonderful.
The second delivery was my May hexies from the hexie flower swap from Joanne. They are two beautiful flowers and I think they are in Civil war reproduction fabrics.
More wonderfulness!!

At the start of last week I received the next pattern for Times gone by bom.
I have it all ready to start appliqueing and stitching. Instead of needleturn applique I am using wools again. I replaced the needleturn in the first block with wools as well. I enjoy working with the wools and am trying to use them where I can. I think they fit in well with this bom.


I think I will work on this at craft group tomorrow.
Hope you all have a crafty weekend.
cheers
Marina

The table topper looks perfect and the hexie flower fabrics look great. I like the wool look for your house.

That's the sort of mail we like, not the window variety. That is a lovely table topper that will keep the winter blues away.
I am very impressed at how Joanne matched the fabrics on the hexie on the right.
Looking for wooly ideas, yours is looking good.

I love the felt work appliqué. I bet it is going to look wonderful when finished.

The table runner is very pretty as well.
