One finished.....four to go.......

the pincushion for Linda's swap is finished..............so one finish.....four to go.....
I hope to get the parcel posted this week.....just need to add a couple of things.........and it will be off to .........Ha ........not telling..................!!

I also finished the little wallhanging from my cyber stitching day.......I was pleased with the way it turned out and it is blue which is a colour I don't use a lot of......so nice to have a change.....

I would have posted the pics last night but the computer was in high demand and it was late when everyone had finished using it......

Not much going on in my world - middle of the working week tomorrow........and I have started another stitchery....."shame" I hear you saying.......well no......I would be working on my five...make that four projects but my machine is still in for it's service so I am machineless and so can't do anything at the moment....except start another stitchery....

I have also been looking at some fabrics to use on my very pink wall hanging and Leanne made some good suggestions via a comment on this blog so that has got me enthused again...I was really pleased with my needleturn applique on the basket of this little quilt and am looking forward to getting a bit further with it.....

Karen (Mrs Martin) has posted my copy of Gift by Rosalie Quinlan and I am hoping it will be here by the weekend.....Country Threads magazine arrived in the letterbox today and a note that there is a parcel at the post office was there too......what could that be......perhaps my little quilt from ALQS....I love the mail and blogging.........

Oh and speaking of blogging it brings me to some giveaways......here and here and also here....lots of comments on all of these blogs for the chance to win something from this very talented trio.......so good luck to everyone!

'Til next time..................Lorraine
