Lucy Locket Quilt Swap

Can you imagine my surprise and delight when I went to the post office to collect an overseas parcel and then when I got home there was another overseas parcel waiting for me. Thanks go to Lucy and Clara for 2 lovely mini quilts. Lucy also sent me some ribbon bits which was great,

and some goodies were in with Clara's too. Thanks girls. It made for a great finish to a long week.

Lucy even inluded a little "chick chick" in the corner of hers, and I was very pleased to see it.
It occurred to me that I have forgotten to blog about Jodie and my Craft at Work challenge for a little while. Each Tuesday and Thursday we meet in the Library and do a little stitching to wrinkle out the stresses of the day.
As we are only able to complete this project "at work" we have both made little bags to carry our challenge work, and if we get really itchy fingers at home, we are allowed to embroider onto our bags. So far I have put 2 little birds on my bag, and last Tuesday I actually forgot to take my new stitching piece, so I started some more bag work.
As well as it being second last week of term, we had a special Warm and Fuzzy week with the staff. My buddy was a "train watcher" so I made this little bucket from Ric Rac's tutorial."I can't wait . . . for the weekend to begin . . ."

I'm so glad your quilt arrived and that you like it! I got your emails but have been flying around like a loony for the last couple of days and haven't replied to loads of stuff! Sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather - love your crafting at work though! Lucy xxx

Love all your goodies! How lucky to work with another crafter/blogger - unfortunately none of my colleagues are really into crafting!

Lucy did such a great job of your mini quilt-I bet you were delighted-how nice it is to get overseas parcels and your were sure worth it. Your stitching is going well-it must make Tuesdays and Thursdays much more fun and that bucket is so cute! Not long now until the end of term- can highly recommend it!!:)
