More Hexies and Lovely Mail

I have received some lovely mail already this week. Firstly from lovely Sue all the way from the UK. A beautiful card featuring a quilt from the 1700s that Sue was lucky enough to see in the flesh so to speak....

Also a lovely birthday  pressie from my dear friend Cheryl from Cheryl's Stitchings. 
She knows me so well....gorgeous feathered friends....a lovely notepad  and drawer smelly. I pop them amongst my fabrics! Beautiful handmade card too....VIOLETS sigh!

Thank you  Cheryl and Sue. Your kindness made my day.
Sewing wise I am so pleased to finally be basting my Grandmother 's Flower Garden quilt together ready for quilting. ...

Its only taken me nearly 10 years lol! As you can tell by the  fabrics...to be fair I did want it to be scrappy and vintage looking. I have even had the backing put by for it.

Well I must get on....more basting to do!
Namaste and Blessings
