"Let's Celebrate" Mothers Day Swap

This very yummy looking parcel arrived in the post on Monday from my swap partner Julie, in the Mrs Martins Quilt Shop "Let's Celebrate" swap. This month we were celebrating Mother's Day
Now for a fleeting moment, I thought I might keep it til Mother's Day to open, but it got the better of me -
And inside were these two gorgeous fat quarters - the photo doesn't do the lovely green piece justice. But am looking forward to doing something special with these very soon.
And there was more - how lovely are these buttons, and some ric rac that looked as though it had been tea-dyed.  Thankyou so much Julie - I absolutely loved all my beautiful presents.

And I got this book in the mail today -
Lynette Anderson's "Country Cottage Quilting" - apart from the lovely cushion on the front cover, and a quilt, the projects are mostly small achievable projects - needlecase, scissor keep, bag, purse and wallhanging to name just a few.  Cheryl
