One Flower Wednesday

Two more  for my pink project.  I think I need to go to the quilt store for more pink fabrics.  That could be trouble!

Yesterday was an awesome mail day at my house.  First, there was the cutest little mug rug from Linda.  I'm in a swap and we're swapping every couple of months, based on the seasons or holidays.  We know who our partner is each time, and Linda and I both chose to go with a winter theme this round, instead of Christmas.  That way, we can use our rugs longer.

Isn't he the cutest thing?  And he was wrapped in more of the red snowman fabric, which sparkles! 

A somewhat larger package arrived from Maria in Australia.  A couple of months ago, she posted a picture of a cushion that she had made for a swap.  It was beautiful, and I commented that I was sorry I had missed out on that swap. she suggested that we do a one-partner swap, and this is what I received from her.

It's so perfect!  I need to get an insert for it so it can be put in a place of honor.

And here are a couple of cross stitches that I completed last week. 

I'll leave you this evening with a picture that I took while I was driving to work this morning. 

I go to work entirely too early!!

Keep on stitching.....Sunny

  11. As a friend I want to stop your from going to the fabric shop. Because we all know what's going to happen when you go looking for pinks. But as a quilter I can't wait to see what all you buy! Go Sunny Go!!! (Oh I see, the quilter side of me won.)
