A Lovely Catchup and Spring Swap

I have had a lovely week off this week and the best part was (apart from my lovely Spring swap parcel arriving) was that I finally got to meet Michelle from Rag-Tag Stitchin'. I have been buying Michelle's patterns and following her blog for quite a long time, and it was with her and Chookys encouragement that I finally  started my own blog 12 months ago (oops forgot my one year anniversary 24th August). So  I really felt that we were already best friends, but was great to finally meet her in person when she was holidaying in my area.  We caught up for a meal at the local hotel
We had the best night and lots of laughs, including the fact that we got kicked out a 9 o'clock because we were the only ones left. So lovely to meet you and Mr R Michelle.
Michelle recently had a special birthday, and as we are both snowy lovers, I just had to stitch her this.

I showed you last post my beautiful Spring stitchery from Julie, my swap partner in Mrs Martins "Let's Celebrate" swap.   This is what I sent to Julie -
which is one of Michelle's lovely designs from her Seasons mini quilts pattern.
together with these Spring themed Theodora Cleave buttons.
