New Ruler and Mini Quilt Progress

Look what I got in the post. My ruler that I won from 'I Have a Notion', during their thirty days of Giveaways. Kelly is such a genuine person and has such wonderful things to buy in her shop.

The ruler came just at the right moment, as I am working on my Mini Quilt Swap for the Quilting Gallery. I have shown you the embroidery already, but I decided I would make another one, so that I could practice for the swap. I bought some reproduction Jane Austen material called 'Winchester', and I am going to make two mini quilts, one for me, one for my partner. Below you can see me using the ruler to cut out the material for the Prairie Points. It was so handy!!
Thankful Thoughts

Yesterday we had sleety rain. Today we had hail showers (see picture of hail storm in progress!), and it is cold!! Thank goodness we are warm and snug indoors.

I must away and do more on the mini.
Till next time.

Mini Quilt Swap

I have just found these swap details on Quilting Gallery
(check link down the page). Isn't this pattern adorable? Lenna Green from the Stitching Cow has created this super cute embroidery pattern for this swap. You can stitch it in redwork, like Lenna’s sample, or with coloured embroidery floss. You can bet I have registered for this swap. This is the first time have ever done a swap, but the pattern was so cute!! My granddaughters are here at the moment, so no sewing being done, but they want to sew a daisy as well. They have done a bit of sewing each time they come, so hopefully, they will enjoy this. I definitely am going to love this.
