goodies, swaps and holidays

I've received some wonderful goodies in the post lately.
I made a needlecase for a private swap with Shirley.
Here is the wonderful case she sent me filled with extra goodies.  Isn't it lovely.

I also won a giveaway on Moose Stash Quilting's blog.  Here are the beauties I received, three 1 yard pieces of lovely fabric and a nail file and luggage tag.  I am so lucky.

I was also involved in a mini quilt swap between the Irish and Atlanta Modern Quilt Guilds.  I received my lovely mini from Amy.  It turns out we had each other for the swap but my mini isn't a patch on the one she made for me.  Her quilting is so good.  I love the colours she used.    

I've also been making another needlecase for a swap.  I just have to sew the button on the front.  My swap buddy loves dogs and nature and she has a boston terrier and a scottish terrier so I did some embroidery on the front of the needlecase for her.  I hope she likes it.

We're away on holidays  (at last a break from work).  We're heading to Cushendall in Northern Ireland and I can't wait.  We've booked to go to the Titanic Museum in Belfast and I'm hoping that I can get to Quilters Quest (fingers crossed).  We won't have internet connection where we are staying so I won't be able to get my fix of reading everybody's stories.  Talk to you all when I get back.
