SSCS 2009 ......done and dusted!

I made it to the post office at lunch time to post off my swap parcel to ...............?? I hope Chookyblue has had loads of emails telling her that all the parcels are on their way....and is breathing a little easier tonight....

Last week I ordered Life is Beautiful, the new BOM from Helen Stubbings, and it arrived today.....the presentation is fabulous.....the instructions and stitchery patterns are in the form of a journal.....you can find out more here......... so Merry Christmas to me!

Check it out on Helen's blog......I love stitcheries so this project is perfect....!! I am thinking of using some new hand dyed threads from Cottage Garden Threads I found at Quilt Fabric Delights.........I will be ordering some as soon as Sarah gets some stock in.......they look interesting.....!


I was pleased with the parcel I sent off to my swap partner.....no sneak peeks......I will post some pics after Christmas.....and thanks to Chookyblue for organising the swap once again......!

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

I am very happy! Your package arrived a couple days ago, but this is the first chance I've had to let you know. I'll be blogging about tonight after I get home from work.
