June Partners in your Inbox

a big hello to all!

as you will figure out when you check your inbox, this month's swap is being sent out a little earlier than usual due to the long awaited arrival of my Puglet (aka 2nd baby) later this week.

Also, just to let you know I will not be checking my emails for a couple of weeks. I plan to be back on deck from Thursday 9th of June. If you have any hassles/questions with this swap, please send me an email by Wed 25th of May before 1pm Adelaide Oz time.

otherwise, I will get back to you after we are all back home! (though it may be at an odd time - i had temporarily forgotten (or blocked out) about middle of the night feeds!)

have a great couple of weeks, and i can't wait to see all the creations when i get to turn on the computer again.

much love, pugs and kisses

Christmas block for Sharon for April

Here is a sneek peak for my April block for Sharon (no blog)

Sharon had let me know that the block had arrived, but silly me, I forgot to blog about it.  **insert sad face**

So here is a full pic.

Sharon asked for "Traditional Christmas Colors, any theme would be great and interesting."  I made up a block based on the wonky tree block recently made for Block Lotto.

My block from Sharon

Sneak peek for Sharon of her block

the lovely card Sharon sent
Sharon's block arrived yesterday (Friday) in the mail, blogger was misbehaving and wasn't letting anyone leave comments, write posts etc. I had emailed Sharon to say thank you, it is a really great block. My block for Sharon was going to be posted yesterday but life got in the way - grand daughter wanted lunch with grandma and a play on my swing, so it get posted on Monday.

Linda's Block.

This month Linda is my swap partner. The good thing about that is I can hand deliver her block at Patch on Thursday.

Yes Linda is my friend and we both belong to the some Patchwork group.
Loved this block as it went together so well.

A gentle reminder and a beautiful block

hi lovely ladies
first, i just want to say a big thankyou for being involved in this swap, and for the encouraging way that you respond to people's posts, photos and work.  i love checking the blog to see what people are saying, making and doing!

But, i just wanted to pick up on a post from Sue over at the original Quilting Block Swaps Australia site.  I have also had to unfortunately suspend someone from our swap due to not fulfilling commitments, and a lack of communication over a few months.

So, the gentle reminder part of the post - please remember that this is a volunteer group, full of lovely ladies who are swapping for fun and to be part of a community.  if you know you are going to be busy in advance, please drop me a line and i can take you out of the swap for a month, or more, if needed - no problems, no judgement.  if you unexpectedly can't complete a swap after you have received your partner for the month, please let me, or your partner know as soon as you can.  that way, i can organise a new swapper, or at the very least let your partner know there has been some difficulties.

the other reminder is to let your partner know when you have received their block!  either send an email or post on the blog, or both.  remember that i am more than happy to post piccies of blocks made or received - just email them to  this way your partners knows that you have received the block made with love for you!

now for the beautiful block part of the post

this gorgeous one was made by Vanessa and very happily received by Leena!  Leena writes "I really love the selection of fabrics used and fantastic workmanship too. Wish the fabric stores here would carry more varieties of the Festive fabrics!! It has been a pleasure to be her swap partner for the month."

thanks ladies and much love, pugs and kisses to you all
