We got a new house! Look what arrived today:
Poor Nannette, she had to wait ages for me to receive it. It took 15 days to come from Salt Lake City to me, while the Birdhouse Fence I sent off to her only took about a week. There's no rhyme or reason to the post at Christmas time!
Nannette sent along some sweet extras - a scrap bag of Lizzie Dish (that I think will go immediately into a potholder for an urgent Christmas gift required on Saturday night!) as well as a card featuring one of her trademark beautiful 'frilly' birds. I'm going to frame it for my sewing room. The package also included a chenille pin cushion!
So, that's the last swap of 2010 all wrapped up. I still owe a doll quilt and a mini or two in some casual (thanks for keepin' it real girls) private swaps.
I managed to finally make myself a table runner for the holiday dining table. It's not too Christmassy, so it will get lots of use. It's a modern and slightly minimalist version of my Crop Circles Table Runner (tutorial in my sidebar). I'll show it to you tomorrow. It's really hard to get a good photo of a long skinny table runner on a grey, rainy day.....
