travels


Finally managed to start quilting the raindrops baby quilt. That zig zag pattern makes it quick and easy. I also like the texture it gives to the quilt. It will be good to have this project finished.

Over the years blogging has connected me with lots of lovely people who live in far away lands. From time to time, I am blessed when a parcel of goodies arrives out of the blue. Or after several emails attempting to locate said parcel at the post office.

Gail is an amazing lady who recently gave a series of history talks to more than 1000 teenage students over several days; and who also likes to travel around the States with her trusty sidekick - a pretty Sheltie called Quinn.

As she was travelling about, Gail very kindly, thought of her Aussie friend at the other end of the world and collected bits and bobs, as well as making a gorgoeus sewing table mat and pouch. She even sent a map marked with what was collected and where. Neat.


I felt well and truly spoiled with all these wonderful goodies. Thank you very much Gail.

  2. I like the zig zags...it makes the quilt look snuggly from here. The travel goodies look like such fun and I like the idea of a map indicating their first "home." Hmmm...
