Comings and Goings

Singapore Post has had a busy day yesterday! First it had to deliver a package to my doorstep with all these wonderful goodies inside.
It's from retro mummy in Sydney. She held an auction a couple of weeks ago for the Queensland Flood Appeal and I was the winner.... yay....! Corrie was so kind to put in an additional piece of fabric. Wouldn't this be perfect to make a little sewing box with?
Then there's this package with my little offering for "Another Little Quilt Swap 5" which is on its way to..... no, I'm not telling yet. But I can tell you that the name of the quilt is "My Valentine Tree". I thought it quite fitting as Valentine's day is coming up very soon.

Incidentally, I've also admitted this quilt  to the Weekly Themed Quilt Contest as this week's theme is Valentine's Day. Go over there and take a look.

Have a great weekend.
