YAY!!! It's here!!!

After what seemed like ages and ages ... it's here or should I say "she's" here ;o). I have received my buddie for the Stitcher's Angel swap!!! WooHoo!!! I can't wait to start stitching now that I know the colours she likes :o). I wonder who has me??? Don't forget to visit here to get the first of your free patterns each week for 7 weeks, even if you're not doing the swap!!! I got the first one this morning by Helen Stubbings from Hugs and Kisses and it's just gorgeous!

Had a busy weekend hunting for the new cooktop and oven ... found what we are after, DH is picking them up today, bless. Now we have to get the kitchen cabinets re-made to fit them [[sigh]]. Think the bbq is looking pretty appealing about now ;o). I'm sure it will all look wonderful when it's finished :o).

Ta daaa .......... I finished my stitchery cushion. I think it's very "Spring-like" and I'm hoping it will help to chase away the winter chills - tee hee!!! I'm sooooo not a Winter person, I've really had enough now, and I'll be very pleased to see the mercury rise ;o). I've called this pattern "In My Garden" and it should be available on the website this week if I can get my guys to put it on for me!!!

.................AND ... I've finished the latest of Lynette Anderson's stitcherys for her free BOM!!! I'm really pleased with them.

That's about all from me for now, going to do some more on Brooke's quilt - it's really coming along now so I'm eager to keep the flow going - before I get distracted again ;o)!!
Take care,
Joy :o)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I had to check yours out and it is funny how we are doing the same projects! That is the best part of the swap...all the great blogs that you get to see and the projects!

I'd love to see your hexagon quilt! As I said before, I'll be working on mine for awhile!

You should also check out my friend's blog (thequiltnook.blogspot.com). She is also doing the swap!
Nice to meet you!

Sorry, but I forgot to ask you, how did you "fill in " the yellow on the the giraffes? I couldn't enlarge the photo and I think that it looks so cute!
