lovely goodies

I've received some lovely goodies in the post.
First I received this lovely postcard from Louise (who I know from the Quilting Board) as a RAK (random act of kindness).
Isn't it lovely.

I also received the following package from Diane (also from the Quilting Board) as a RAK.  I'm so overwhelmed by their genorosity is sending something to me.

I finished my paper pieced gnome postcards for a swap in a group on Yahoo and have sent them.  I posted them on leap day so that they would have that date stamped on them by the post office.  I think they are cute.

I've also finished my little house ornament for Leonie and posted off to her with a few extra's in it for her three beautiful girls.  I can't show a photo of what I sent as she reads my blog and I want it to be a surprise.

I also finished and posted off my doll quilt for the February doll quilt swap on the Quilting Board to Christina.  I can show you a photo as she doesn't follow my blog.

I have the front of my Name Swap banner finished but as it is a surprise I can't show any of it except this as it would be a complete giveaway.

I also had the honour of being given the chance to pick the March block for a BOM on the Quilting Board by Cheryl (Sulabug).  I chose this block.  I even wrote up a tutorial for it and for anybody who is interested, here it is Shamrock Block.  I might just have to make it up in a few different colour combinations to see what it is like.

That's it for now.  Hope you all have a great weekend.
