A Lovely Surprise!


The postman knocks and the puppies bark! Now this is a lovely surprise! One of my dearest Blogland friends, Chookyblue, has sent this gorgeous gift to me!

We are in a Birthday Fat-quarter Swap organized by Maree - now this Swap is supposed to be 2 fat-quarters - hmmm, looks a bit more than that to me, and isn't it all just gorgeous? Chooky, I love this all so much! The basket is all too sweet and dainty to use, maybe a nice decoration, perhaps, I could spray it with Scotchguard - thinking out loud, I will do that and then use it!! The little needlecase is divine - I know the girls at GDITC at Nundle started this project - cute Redwork is next on my agenda when the dust settles. And the fabrics are 'very Lurline' at the moment - Chooky, thank you so much!

I think she will, and I do hope she will - that is, Maree, I would love you to organize this swap again next year!

Happy day everyone!
