this and that

I have been away in Yorkshire for the last few days visiting my family. We did a bit of this:

And a bit of that:

There was time for some sewing - I completed the binding on my painting with bleach quilt:

The I came home to a little packet from Kate at one flew over. There is a bit of a tale attatched to me recieving these pieces of lovliness. Months ago we arranged a swap via this group. My fabric arrived safe and sound from Australia, but my parcel to Kate never turned up. Kate was very patient but eventually we had to admit the worst - my parcel had vanished somewhere between the UK and Australia. Luckily I had enough of the fabric to send the swap again (by recorded delivery this time!) but Kate felt so bad for me that she sent this to make up for it! How lovely and how kind of her. Quilty bloggers are so wonderful. Even better is that I had just been reading over on Red Pepper Quilts about Aunty Cookie fabric and look what turned up from Kate - some Aunty Cookie of my very own!


  1. So pleased you like the package Jo x

  2. That's so sweet of Kate! I have to say that I once had to wait 3 and a half months for a package from Australia to arrive. Of course I was on holiday when it did come but luckily my neighbours were able to ask the Customs people to hold it for me!

  3. great fabric!! and i just love "craft is the new black" - yeah! :-)
