What I've been up too....

 I found this lone pinwheel block and decided to make it into a pincushion,the fabric are from a charm pack called "Verna"
 I also found a few small stitcheries while tidying up a basket in my sewing room and made it up into a mini cushion.....not sure where to put this one yet.
 I also realised I hadn't shown you photo's of the fat 1/4's and the extras I sent to Sue in last months fat 1/4 swap......I was running a bit late so to make up for it I sent Sue this journal as a thank you for being so understanding :) Thanks Sue for being my partner,I love this swap!
 These are the fat 1/4's I sent to Sandra,the swap was a diferent colour but we decided between us to swap a colour we needed for a project we're both working on and Sandra requested pale pink or pale purple and I found these yummy pinks and some matching DMC threads to add to her parcel.
 I asked Sandra for red and white....of course LOL,and she sent me these gorgeous fat 1/4's as well as this beautiful red satin ribbon.Thanks Sandra I love them all!
This is a little something I've also been working on with some bits and pieces I had left over from another project,still not sure what it will turn out to be when I'm done with it.....as you can see I'm still loving red and white!
I'll be back later with a photo update on my red and white ripple blanket.....it's grown soooo much!
