12" Mini Quilt swap sent

My partner in the 12" Mini quilt swap was Lyn from  Stitches from the Mainland and I know it has arrived safely.
I enjoyed making it for her and included a couple of Easter treats along with the coaster from Cheryll.

I tried it out on my frame and and was pleased with the fit. 

It was nice to arrive home the day I sent it to find my swap from Michell shown in my last post. It is in pride of place in my hallway.

12" Mini Easter Swap

Happy Easter 
Today I arrived home and received my Easter Mini swap from Michell.  
Thank you Michell, it has brightened my Mini quilt frame up wonderfully for Easter.

Thanks to Cheryll for organising this for us.
It is so long since I have posted on my blog. I have had a wee peep at what others are getting up to from time to time but no posts myself.
I am so inspired by what everyone has been up to.

Aurora Australis 
In February this year I went to the supermarket and met a colleague from work. He told me that that night was going to be a good night for the Southern lights or Aurora Australis. I went home and inspired my husband who is a keen photographer to go in search of this phenomenon. We finally settled on a spot along the coast from where we live. He set up his tripod and put on a timer and this is one of the images he got.
It certainly was a thrill to see. Lots of friends were keen to go out but conditions haven't suited quite so much since.

Hopefully it won't be so long next time.
Bye for now.
