Well I'm still here and I'm still sick! But to make it more interesting I have a different cold this week.
The last one was a snotty sinus, headachy thing but this one comes with a lovely never ending cough and a lack of voice. So not only do I feel poorly but I'm driving everyone else completely mad!
And added to that I have had various children home with it and little Daphne is now coughing along with me. So not much is getting done although I do have a few bits and pieces to show you.
Yesterday I had a note from the postie to go and pick up a registered parcel which I knew must be one of my doll quilts. When I went to pick it up the girl handed me a huge and heavy box so I was a bit surprised. We raced it home all excited and sure enough it was my Four Seasons Quilt Swap Spring quilt. But it was also four lovely quilting magazines and lots of yummy lollies/candy/sweeties (depending on where you are from).
How incredibly generous!
The quilt was designed and made by Su who makes all sorts of wonderful quilts and sounds like a gorgeous woman with a really big heart. It's a pleasure to have 'met' her. Thanks so much Su for my lovely bright, cheerful Spring quilt and all the other goodies, we are enjoying them enormously.
Finally I have completed my Spring quilt. It's off to its new owner who as far as I'm concerned is one cool girl. I'll let you know who it is when she gets it because she has a lovely blog.
I hope she likes it.
And here is a little sneak peak at my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt III swap. I haven't said much about this quilt as it was inspired very much by something my partner said on her blog and I think it will be way too obvious. So again, you'll have to wait and see.
The other thing keeping me extremely busy at the moment is pattern writing and sample making. So in case you forgot that I make aprons - here's a few of my recent ones.
We're not far off launching so stay tuned!
Oh and by the way Fi, my extra exciting news is that I WON $5,000 of advertising on the Living Creatively website for generating lots of leads from my blog during the month of April. So yippy for me - perfect timing for our new venture!!
