FAwF/FNwF show and tell

Another FAwF/FNwF ............ where are the weeks going?  It will be Christmas before you know it.

I have come down with a shocking head cold - blocked sinuses, sneezing, sore throat, aches in places I didn't know I had places - the whole box and dice :(  and while I really wanted to get a whole heap of sewing done, after running around doing some errands that couldn't wait, and spending a bit of time chasing up some 'one-sided' Christmas Block swaps (that is a post for a later date :( ) I sewed a little, but mostly just faffed around the sewing room   ;-)

I completed a very late October Christmas Swap block for Delphine, who has been most patient with me.  Not a very good introduction to our swap group, when your first swap is late and from the Swap Co-Ordinator herself, no less!  Not a very good example to set :(

Anyway, here is the block I made - you get to see a black and white version - so as not to ruin the surprise, I will post a full colour pic when it is received by Delphine.

I did a blog post about receiving Delphine's block HERE, but will post the picture again, because it is such a beautiful block ;-)

For FAwF/FNwF, I did get a few things done though, I:
  • picked out FQs for 2 birthdays, and 2 swap partners for Fat Quarter Swap for November
  • picked out fabrics for my Christmas Block Swap (x 2)
  • picked out fabrics for my QBSA Block swap
  • played with a layout of blocks in preparation for some secret sewing ;-)
  • applied the finishing touches to my 12inch Mini Quilt top - it is now ready to be put in the mail ;-)

who is it going to?

My day was made a whole lot better when Cheryll sent me an email letting me know I had won a small prize for FNwF for October ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
