goodness from England

Monica and I did a little magazine swap.

She sent me some other goodies (which I love) along with this fabulous quilt magazine.
I've been wanting some little heart pins to put in a pretty pincushion, (which I have yet to make) so that was especially fun. Maybe a cute pincushion will be my next patchwork obsession project. My crafting time has taken a serious hit.

This is the first project that I would like to try from the magazine. It's a technique that I haven't tried before, but looks great. Of course the pattern uses Moda fabrics, so that could be part of the reason I love it so much. Thanks for all the goodies, Monica! I loved the package.

About the photo from yesterday's post: I am still working on the quilting, but will show it off as soon as I am done.

Thanks for the comments on my 7 random things list. You guys are great! Thanks for letting me know that I am not a complete fruitcake.

Dawn and Angie, #7 was written just for you.

Kirsty, your comment made me laugh-I'm still chuckling about it today.

I want some of those pins! I was just thinking this afternoon (as I'm making a pincushion) that cute pincushions need cute pins...
