FHFS etc.

Oh my goodness I have been very spoilt with my parcel in the FHFS ruler cover swap. This lovely parcel was waiting at the door....
Lots of goodies inside from my lovely swap partner dear Kate from Show and Tell.
My new ruler cover is beyond beautiful...
Kate has sewn tape measure trim on the cover and the handle. The flap has beautiful punch needle segments on it....oh love it! It is so beautifully done.
I just loved the notepad and the special "Chookyblue" card....

Thank you so much Kate for that lovely spoiling xxx Such a lovely group of ladies!!!!
I have been diligently hand quilting away and I am on to the second border...sorry the photo is a bit erk, but it is very cloudy and grim here today...
I even have 2 needles going at once lol! More action on it today!
Yesterday I finally finished my Cape Barren Goose. My cousin who is a Ranger very kindly sent me a photo he had taken. I chose to place it amongst the Poa grass where they make their nests....this meant lots more hours of work lol! But I am pleased with it.
Time for a snack and a cuppa....bit miserable here today but the garden is loving the drizzle.
It also means....great quilting weather!!!
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
