Last Thursday I received a beautiful pillow from Rachel (wooden spoon) in the X-factor pillow swap. Her drunkards path pillow is filled with so many gorgeous fabrics and the circular quilting is amazing. It looks right at home here on the bed with a couple of the other pillows from the swap.
Then on Friday the first set of Chicopee feathers from the AusModBee arrived on my doorstep from Jenn (Penny Poppleton) - it is so exciting to see how these look.
On Saturday I caught up with one of the other members of the AusModBee group when she came back here for a family celebration. I made Cat an Amy Butler zippered pouch and she was kind enough to give me one of her wonderful panels from the etsy store that she has with Vanita - don't you just love that pink galah!!
This is what the whole panel looks like when made up into a pillow cover - I really like this one as "Dirty Dancing" is one of my favourite movies.
And of course Sunday was Mother's Day so I was totally spoiled - a yummy cooked breakfast and some great pressies from my family including the biggest box of chocolates I have ever seen!
Then today I received a swap package from Leona - I had sent her a bundle of the Sarah Fielke "On the Pond" fabrics a little while ago and she has sent a wonderful parcel of fabrics in return including the Art Gallery "Color Me Retro" range by Jeni at In Color Order with coordinating solids, and some of Malka Dubrawsky's "A Stitch In Color" which I love as well, along with many other texty fabrics. Thank you so much Leona - I really do like swapping fabric across the miles with you:)
Later this week I have a blogiversary giveaway coming up, and then there is the Bloggers Quilt Festival which runs from 17-31 May - more info here.
