Hello Spring

The first day of Spring marks the next "Occasion" to swap in the
 "Let's Celebrate Swap"

Claire and I have changed things up a little and decided that we would swap a Zipper Pouch.
These two parcels have been tempting me since Claire and I caught up at Friends in Stitches in July and swapped gifts :)

and hopefully these below have been tempting Claire :)

Not long before she can open that spotted one either :o)
Now back to the pouches......
Here is my new Zipper Pouch and I love your fabrics choices Claire and of course the chocolates of which I may have eaten just a few of by now!

and here is what I sent to Claire
"Linen and Scrumptious" a combination I am loving at the moment.

Full of goodies and some treats.

Thank you Claire for another fun swap.

Blocks for Blake.

I need to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has been in contact
 and kindly offered to make blocks for Blake.  The response has be amazing.  
Quilters and blogging friends are some of the kindest people I know.

I think that I have replied to all the emails.
If you are still waiting to hear from me please leave another comment 
with your email address as I have been unable to answer some due to profiles
being set as "no reply bloggers".

As the blocks begin to show I will be sure to share them with you and who knows,
there may even be a second quilt for another child, dependent on how many blocks arrive.

hugs Sharon
