......may be small but it's still a finish. I've been doing lots of sewing things but most of it has been preparation of hand work projects. I put together the needle case kit I received from Fiona. It was just so quick and easy. Fiona's tutorial was very easy to follow. I can see
I'll be making more of these!
A parcel arrived last week and it was my copy of Barbara Brackman's new Civil War Sampler quilt book that I had pre-ordered. There is a story about the Civil War to go with each block in the quilt. I've only had a quick look through so far but I love it already!
As you may know, I love joining in on swaps. I put a lot of time and effort into thinking about what my partner might like to receive and I make things to the best of my ability. It appears there are some people out in blog land who sign up for swaps, receive their goodies but never reciprocate. This is very disappointing to hear and so disappointing for the person, who in good faith, sends gifts to that person but doesn't get anything back in return.
· To always swap on time.
· To always email a THANK YOU to my partner.
· To be considerate and thoughtful when choosing a gift.
· To give my partner the quality of gift that I would like to receive.
· To communicate when it’s required.
· To NEVER over commit and let a partner down.
· To advise the swap mama when I receive my gift.
This I sewomly pledge....
Cheryll has invited anyone and everyone who wants to participate in her swaps to do the same. Place the button on your blog sidebar & post "the pledge" to acknowledge your intention & commitment.
Just to finish off with. We made some more ice cream. This time it was choc mint! mmmmmm! It was so yummy. You can see that Austin didn't want to waste a bit!
