Let's Celebrate Mothers Day Swap, Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt.

This is the second swap of seven over the course of the year with the same partner.  My partner is Kali of I sent my parcel off last week. Wrapped in striped paper and tied with a pretty bow. The only thing I forgot to do was take a photo of the parcel. Have plenty of photos of the contents but will not post these until Kali opens the gift when she returns home after Mothers Day.
I received my gift a couple of weeks ago but did not open it until last week. Below are the contents of my parcel from Kali.

Kali sent a beautiful fat quarter, a Pincushion pattern, a heart hanger, some vintage look lace and braid, a little notebook and a card wishing me a Happy Mothers Day.  Thank you so much Kali, they are all lovely and I look forward to using them in a project soon.
Also a big Thank you to Karen from Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop for hosting the Let's Celebrate Swap.

I'm patiently awaiting the next Vignette Magazine by Leanne Beasley. I read somewhere that the magazine should be out by the end of May so not too long to go now. In the new magazine, Leanne is starting a new quilt called Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt.  I decided I would do this one and have been able to buy a kit for the fabrics and threads from Stitches from the Bush. The fabrics are lovely Tilda ones and the threads are Cosmo.

So that's it from me tonight. Happy stitching till next time.......... Hugs........
