Gift Cards? A WIN and a block

Gift Cards?

I don't like to give gift cards :(
Maybe I can be converted to change :)

OK, I feel just a little better about giving a gift card now.
Nothing like adding a little "home made touch" 
to make me feel better about giving a gift card :)

I have used Annie Downs "Present Pouch" pattern in her 
"A Christmas Story" Book for my inspiration on this one.

I had a WIN!

The wonderful Josie over at Dilly Dimple had a give-away recently
 and I was the super lucky winner and my gift has arrived in record time.

Timing was perfect as I have been eyeing off this book and was ready to buy it!
I was also spoilt to receive 2 Curio Charm packs. 
My little brain is already clicking over with what I can make with them and 
I also like the quilt that Josie had in her post.

Huge thank you Josie

Josie is also so close to finishing off her Boy Story Quilt so why not pop on over and take a look.

another Block received

I have also received my May block from Charlene in the Block Swap Adventure.

Here are the blocks I have received so far from the Modern Sampler Bee and Block Swap Adventure Groups (and my fabric stash so I can start making some for this quilt also)

I can definitely see this Grey and yellow quilt taking shape here.

Might have also squeezed in a little more work on my SKOW - My favourite things Quilt.
I will try and organise the photos today and share with you soon.

have a great weekend,


  1. A lovely way to present gift cards..... a great win.. what fun... and a fantastic selection of blocks to play with...

  2. Congrats on the great win. I know what you mean about gift cards, but our youngest niece and only nephew wanted them for Christmas. The iTunes gift cards we got them were large rectangles and didn't fit in gift card holders, so I made lined drawstring bags from Christmas fabric and added candy too. Of course I forgot to take pictures, but they liked them. I think yours is so cute.

  3. WooHoo another winner! I love it when friends WIN things!!!
    Also just love the gift card pouch... brilliant!
    Have an awesome weekend! :)

  4. Well done Sharon! What a lovely surprise. Love your gift card idea. Have a lovely weekend. I'm off to finish some projects!
