A little finish...

I am so happy to be able to post a finish. This cute little quilt measures approx. 17"x17". I bought the pattern in Vermont and where I just haven't had time to get at bigger projects I dug this out a few weeks ago. It uses one charm pack and a wee bit of yardage. The charm pack is Fig and Plum by Moda. I finally sat down yesterday and finished it after getting inspiration from other blogs. We watched Harry Potter 5(refreshing our memories for Harry Potter 6-taking the kids today) last night while I hand sewed the binding and attached the tabs.

Not the best pic, but this is it's home in my bathroom. Cozies it right up. The pattern is called Baskets of Blessings. We could use that right now as we are thinking of putting the house up for sale and if we do, we want a quick sale!! We've been painting and organising..ugh!! I was so happy to escape to my sewing room and create something.

Pinchushion Swap.
Well, I entered my first swap and received(as posted) my sweet pinchushion and goodies to go along with it. Sadly, I was told a week and a half ago my swap partner hasn't received her package from me yet :o( I emailed the organizer last week to see if she heard anything on my partner receiving and I keep checking on my partners blog..nothing yet. I know I sent my sister something to Korea once and it took like 5 weeks, I am wondering(hoping) that it may take the same time if being sent to Israel? Although it's been longer than that now. I made sure to send it off early as I figured it would take longer. I will give it some more time but may have to resend for my partner, how dissapointing for her to not receive anything.

I love how it looks on the bathroom wall, perfect! If you sell your house will you stay in your area or move elsewhere? Good luck with that if you decide to do that...

What a sweet little mini quilt - the fabric is gorgeous. Hope your partner received her swap items soon - mail to some countries can take a while.

Very cute. I like the random brown triangles scattering for the handles of the baskets... so much more interesting that way.

Jilly I love your wallhanging. That deep plum really pops - it looks fabulous!!! I think I might have to hunt for some of that colour to add to my little collection ;o).
Hugs,
