Back in the garden!

Between helping my husband with the air-con installation yesterday I grabbed 20 minutes here and there to work on my new "In My Garden" design, a larger embroidery/applique piece that I plan to use as a pillow cover. Right now I can't get enough of these bright and cheerful snippets of garden life!


Today is the day to post your Hug Swap items to your partner!!
Did you enjoy this little swap? Vicki and I are very excited to see photos on your blogs of the pretty mug hugs and mug mats, but make sure you don't put up a photo of the one you made until your swap partner emails to let you know they have received it.
As soon as you receive yours in the mail make sure you put a photo of that set on your blog, too. :-)
If you don't have a blog you can email the photo to Vicki or I and we'll show it for you.


The days are counting down very quickly to the mammoth drawing of NINE wonderful giveaways from the Gum Tree Designers!!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
