Book Review

I am a book lover.  I buy them and muse over the pages, again and again and again.  I think I am a bit of a book snob.  I get all 'thingy' about dogeared pages and tatty covers.  I know it's a sign of a book well used and sometimes loved...but I just can't get over my thing about neat and tidy and cared for.
This book would be a great resource for anyone new to quilting.  For me at the moment I am trying to improve my free motion quilting, so the chapter on that was great to read.  The more tips and hints I can get, the better.  I like to try new things and see if they work for me.
This book is well worth reading and there are 12 different quilts to make.

My Friends with Benefits gifts.

Oh how lucky am I?  I was so excited to open my parcels and see what was inside.  It was so nice to make new friends and then receive gifts from these 2 women I had never met but had become close to via email.  I really love this blogland!

This was my parcel from Lynn.  I was so spoilt!  I love the bear - he is just the cutest thing and I had to give baby bear 2 strick instructions that he was MINE and not hers, lol.

Lynn also included this tiny angel book mark  - it is just beautiful, don't think the photo really does it justice.

My gift from Laura had me amazed - her stitches were so tiny and perfect and neat!  I was a little ashamed of my cumbersome stitches on her things.  She also included a fat quarter of material - always a lovely gift and somethings for the kids.

A final thank you needs to go to Kathy for organising this swap.  I asked her when she would be running another one, she said she needed a rest first.
