I have been trying to post this since Wednesday last week, but hubby has been using my camera and I have to recharge the battery everytime I come home.  He left me a little charge tonight.  God knows what he is doing during the day, LOL.  In any case, here is what has arrived since my last post.  From Anne of A Good Yarn:
Not just the blocks which are absolutely lovely, but an Australian Quilt magazine and Australian chocolates (they didn't last long, LOL).  Love the magazine, Ann, it has a lot of quilts (even the ads) that combine embroidery and patchwork.  Way to many ideas for this girl 'cause I just don't have enough time to make them all!

From Ruth of Country Log Cabin:

A cute little kleenex cover complete with Kleenex and the blocks, of course.

From Beth of My Creations, the blocks and a scissors fob (did I get that right?)

From Christine of Stitch Niche.  Just found your note in the envelope, LOL, that's why it is not in the picture.

And from Theri in Texas.  She sent me seeds for the yellow columbines in her garden.  Theri, I will send you seeds when mine are done blooming.

Ladies, thank you so much.  All of the blocks are just gorgeous and I love your choice of fabrics and colors.  Our swap quilts are gonna be awesome!!!!

I finished two more Snowbound blocks.  What do you think?

OK, that's it for now.  Got to get back to making my "surprises" for you all.   Love ya!



  1. All of the blocks and goodies are wonderful. I can't wait to see what everyone does with their blocks! Your two little snowmen are so cute, I love all the pretty colors you used. The new one came out today, yea!

  2. Wonderful blocks and goodies. (yes it is a fob). Your snowmen are adorable.Great embellishments. I finally gave up trying to resist and started the snowmen blocks too. I am going to try and do 2 a month to catch up.

  3. Looks like some good loot! Mine has started rolling in - I got my second one today!

  4. Yay for blocks!!

    I'm loving your snowbound blocks! The extra hearts on last month's block are super cute. Great job! :) Christine

  5. What lovely blocks you've received! Soon it will be decision time on putting them all together. What fun that will be! Your cute snowmen will be just much fun also. ---"Love"

  6. Isn't it so much fun to get quilt blocks mixed in with the bills?! The snowmen are very cute, too. Seems a lot of the gals in this group are working on them, so it will be fun to see how different they are when done.

  7. I was looking at all the blocks you have gotten and picturing them as a's going to come out really nice;) I expect pictures of a finished project soon...LOL;)
    Happy Quilting!!

  8. Surely there must be one project in the magazine to tempt you Liri! Everyone has been so thoughtful with their swap parcels. Your Snowman blocks are adorable! I really must finish mine. Cheers, Ann :-)

  9. I just found your blog, as I haven't had alot of time on the computer. The blocks and goodies that you are recieving from everyone are terrific. I'm sure you'll have a great time putting them together.
