My candlemat has arrived!!

Going to check the post yesterday evening brought a lovely surprise...a big parcel containing my candle mat from my swap partner in the USA.  How exciting!!  Couldn't wait to open it...
And a magazine to read too!  Wonderful!  The colours are just what I wanted and they go perfectly in my living room

I am really thrilled...and the woolly monsters seem to like it too!!

My candle mat swap partner comes from Wallingford, Conneticut.  I go to a quilt group in a small town called Wallingford, Oxfordshire....which is not far away from here, so really strange how, in such a wide world, this could happen!!   This is the first online swap I have done and I have to say it has been very enjoyable.  Thank you so much Tracey for my lovely mat..I love it.
Anyway, back to work now...doing a colourful Kaffe Fassett quilt for a customer in London.  It is cheery and bright and makes you smile as you work!  I will post piccies soon.

  3. Thank you for visiting my blog. You got a beautiful candle mat too! The colors really goes well with your home. It has been very fun to join this swap. I feel humble when I see all those wonderful quilts you and other quilters are making. I am a very simple quilter, but I enjoy it very much.
