First 6 inch blocks ;-)

I have been going through my list, and checking it twice ;-)  I realised I had been a bad swapper and not posted pics of my first ever 6" block.

Here is the block I sent for my first 6" swap for Cheryl

I hope it has arrived by now ............. it can sometimes take a bit longer to get to WA!

It was quite a different experience making a 6" inch block vs a 12" block.  I have since updated my preferences and am quite excited about the lap quilt I will make from the blocks I will receive in this Swap Group.

December blocks for Linda G

I mailed these blocks for Linda G today. I hope they'll arrive by Christmas but they probably won't as we're only a week away now. Where does the time go? Anyhow, I hope these will fit in with your project, Linda. Happy Holidays.

Spools for Sharon

Sharon requested spools in any colour on a white or tone on tone white background.  Being a big fan of blue and white I made her two blue and white spools.  I think they are pretty and hope that Sharon thinks so too.

September blocks have arrived!

My blocks from Bobbie from September arrived yesterday.  Look at how beautiful they are!

I especially like all the movement in the top one.  Bobbie thought it was a bit small so she sent three, but I think I will have to make that one fit cause it's so lovely.  Thanks Bobbie!

November blocks from Jen

Today I received Jen's blocks for November. They are lovely and go so well with my other blocks.
Thank you so much Jen.

Merry 6 inch for December

Hi Ladies

I have just finished sending out the December partners.  Jolanda from Portugal is my double swap queen this month being paired with Janet from Canada and Billy from Victoria.  We also welcome new member Lynda from New Zealand swapping with us for the first time

With 24 members now in this group, we have three sitting the month out and sadly I have had to suspend two partners for failing to meet their swap obligations or communicate with their partner.
I cannot stress this enough.  If you are running late with your swap please let your partner know, If you have mislaid their email address then email me and I will let them know. 

On a brighter note:

Have a wonderful and safe Christmas with your loved ones.  Hold them dear to your hearts.  I look forward to catching up with all of your again mid January

On a brighter note:
