This week I've had lots of fun receiving and making Goodies!
First I received my Down Under Doll Quilt from the Swap.
Isn't it great? When I got handed the package I couldn't work out what it could be. I didn't recognize the sender. When I opened it up I had this rush of excitement and then got a bit teary. I was so overwhelmed that someone I didn't know had made me something so great. I think I could become addicted to swaps.
She even made me a cute mug rug. Shame I'm trying to lose my baby weight gain and can't eat those choccies!
Bek is so talented I love her blog
Then in yesterdays mail were these gorgeous hand knitted socks from the so talented Evenlyn of Stitch by Stitch. We did a little private swap - socks for PJ pants. Good swap.
I still haven't tried them on yet. I just love the feel of them while they are still new. I don't want to stretch them!
And I've been working on my Doll quilt. It isn't perfect, I pulled it apart so many times trying to get it to line up. I couldn't, and I don't know why. Oh well, it looks good and I love the colours and want to make a big quilt out of the same fabrics now.
Hope my partner likes it.
I rode my horse for the first time in 2 years yesterday. That was so good to do. I was pretty scared getting on. He is big and I am riding UNfit and a bit nervous now after 2 kids. But he was so good and I wasn't too bad. I'm hoping we can be competing at the end of the year - hoping.
