January Fat Quarter Swap

Sneaking in one last blog post before I catch my plane.

Hoping not to get behind on my obligations this year, I got in early with the fat quarter swap and got them all in the post on the first friday of the month.

 This month it was swappers choice and this is what I sent to Sharon of Motherdragon's Musings. A couple of Sharon likes are purples and cats.....I hope she likes these that I picked out for her. (update....yes, she did!)
Three birthdays this month
To Maryanne who likes purple and dark green to go with purple

To Diana who is collecting red and white fabrics - I adore that scissors fabric!
To Lisa who likes geometric patterns
I had to shop around a bit this month to find something that I was happy to send to these girls and I hope they like the choices I made.

And this is what arrived from Sharon.......aww Sharon, this parcel made my heart sing. Thank you so much.


And the lucky number is.......

It is time to draw the winner of the giveaway I had for the Grow Your Blog Party. I know my giveaway is being drawn sooner than everyone elses but it is because I am flying to the UK on Wednesday and I would like to get it sent off before I go.  I suppose I could have got away without a giveaway but I do so like to have a little fun.

Before I let Mr RNG do his thing, I would just like to say a hugeTHANK YOU to everyone who came over for a visit to my blog and left such lovely comments. I am not sure if I replied to all of you but I think I made contact with the majority.  And I must not forget to say THANK YOU to our host, Vicki from 2 Bag Full. You can go HERE to catch up with the other bloggers involved. I am so thrilled to know that my blog has swelled by 20 new followers........Welcome to you all.  I look forward to getting to know you and hope you will visit often and leave me a little comment while here.

Ok, there were 51 comments but one person commented twice and to be fair to everyone, I have counted that as 1 entry .

And the winner is.............................
GILLIE from Random Thoughts from Abroad

"Squeaking in at the last minute, a new visitor - thank you for your nice comment - but will be back for a more extended look. Have a lovely visit back to the UK, take your wellies, lol, and obviously your camera! Love everything on the blog but do like a nice *view*, lol! Yes please, would love to be in the drawing!"

Gillie, you made it in plenty of time. I will contact you by email as well but please let me know your address asap.  I only have tomorrow morning to make it to the Post Office.

There will be other giveaways if you are a regular follower, I have giveaways coming up every month. 

Must be off to do some final packing of my suitcase now.

January EOM wrap up / February Plan


January! where did it go?.......gone way too fast if you ask me. Thankfully I can report that I managed to fulfill most of my Calendar obligations for the month so I have to be happy about that. Betsy's Closet didn't make it this month but everything else was achieved.

Block 10 a and b of The Edwardian House

Block 6 of Bric a Brac
And, finished just last night, the stitchery for Block 4 of Tail Feather

Completing the binding on my blue green table topper made my UFO finish for the month

And I started my NewFO for January

Now comes February..........
Not much sewing will get done in February because I am packing my suitcase today.  Heading to the UK on Wednesday for my mum's 80th Birthday.  Calendar progress will resume in March.
