Hexies and Totes

There’s been good mail at my house this week!  Yesterday I received a surprise package from Anthea.  She sent me a lovely little blue tote, a hexie pin cushion, and two fat quarters.  I had admired some gumboot fabric that she used recently, and now I have my very own.  I also found out some time ago that Anthea has an aversion to blue, so she is in ‘therapy’ to overcome it. 


I also received a hexie from Raewyn, as part of a postcard exchange that we did.  Her stitching is amazing.


And here are the postcards that I sent earlier this month, and have all been received now.


Today, my tote arrived from the Sewing With Friends Swap, from Mhairi.  I just love the colors, and it held some special tea bags, and a fat quarter with Koalas and Kangaroos.


It’s been like Christmas around here the last couple of days.  Thanks ladies!!  And now I’m heading down to the sewing room.  I’m suffering from withdrawal…….

Be kind to fellow swappers…..Sunny
