I recently won a giveaway on Elisa's blog and the wonderful goodies arrived.

I think I will make a nice bag for myself out of those fab fabrics.  Needless to say the sweets and chocolates will be devoured tonight (Lent starts tomorrow and so it's goodbye to goodies for 7 weeks and maybe hello to a slightly smaller waistline????).

If you get a chance check out  Elisa's blog, especially her Canton Village workshop she attended and her blocks that she is making for this fab quilt.  She's also made a lovely pouch for the Mouthy Stitches swap.
I had Elisa as a secret swap for the Goodie Swap last year and we've been checking out each other's blogs ever since.

I also received my needlecase in the swap over on Quilting Board that I was in.

She sent the most cute little hexie pincushion and some other goodies.

I've been very happy to see the post arriving.  I'm waiting for my charms from a rainbow charm swap to arrive next.

FNSI sewing

I managed to get the following finished during FNSI

Finishing touches to my swap for the Mouthy Stitches.  I'm covering up some embroidery which would show who my pouch is for.

I also managed to get the front finished of some fabric postcards for a swap on Yahoo.  The theme is paper-pieced gnomes.

And finally I have part of the front of my Name Game swap finished.  I can only show a little bit of it as it is a secret swap and my partner would guess straight away that it is for her if she saw the full thing.

All in all not a bad bit of work for a Friday night.
Hope you all had a great weekend.

Friday Night Sew In

It's that time again.
The Friday Night Sew in is almost on us.  Why not head over to Heidi's blog to sign up.

I am going to finish off my house ornament for the swap I'm in.  I've finished my puch for the Mouthy Stitches swap but I'll hold off showing the photo until my partner receives it.  I also have to get into gear on the Name Swap.  

I'm also the guest for the block for March in a BOM on the Quilting Board.  I've made my block and started my turorial.  I've all the written info done, just need to get the photos's in order for it. After I've posted it on the Quilting Board I'll put the tutorial here (my first).

I also have some fabric postcards to make for a swap on Yahoo.

I've received some lovely goodies over the last week or so and will get myself organised with photos of all to show over the weekend.

What do you think I'll get finished tonight?

Have a great weekend everyone.
