Goody, goody!

As I work on finishing my partner's nametag I have received even more goodies through the post!

These Text charms have arrived from the swap I was in run by May - she is already planning another - a map layer cake swap this time!   If I were clever I would buy fabric and cut it up and hand it to her at FQR as she is coming over to London from Germany!

Anyway time for a quick gloat again!

And in addition I received these gorgeous star blocks from Julie

She loves a strip pieced quilt does Julie and she is a hard working nurse to boot!  She manages to work and churn out the most amazing quilts - I don't know how she does it??

I think I mentioned that I needed to make an orange quilt at some point and she sent these to me to start me off!  Thank you so much Julie!  My mind is ticking over with ideas already of all the different directions this could take!

I do love to plan something new!  

Now for some stitching...based upon the bell pepper coaster idea that we were all doing the other week as part of the new Zakka along I just had to play with some scraps and make another shape - an apple this time!

This one went off in a package to Jodi with her bee block - it could be a coaster, or somewhere to stick pins, needles in while sewing or ....what else could you use it for?

The front

The back

Anyway Jodi started me off as she has a thing about apples....but here are a few more I made.

The backs

Why?  Because I can!
