crazy mail day

This morning I gotrung out of bed by one of my favourite persons - The Postlady - she asked me to come down as she had some overs ized stuff for me. That usually means I get a swap item ... so I go downstairs and there is a pile of oversized letters and I ask if I can just go through them and pick mine, well she said the were all for me.

That made 4 letters ... ok one was just full of papers I need to send in an application ... but the important stuff ... The first quilt (in order of posting date) is this one - made for the April swap of the Doll Quilters Monthly - now ignorant me needs to find out about diamnods and baseball because "diamonds are forever" was the theme -- I really don't know anythign about baseball except thea use a ball, a bat and funny gloves - ohh and they enjoy sliding through the dirt.

DQS - 2014/04 - "diamond"

Then the next one - coming from Australia - is the May contribution of the same swap - the theme was "modern" - my partner is very patient because I still haven't finished hers - I know bad bad me.

DQS - 2014/05 - "modern"

I think that one is going to be a competition for the leave-mini that is currently on my fabric cupboard, maybe I will exchange them monthly or so ... And alst but not least - I got me a pincushion - actually after waiting for 3 years to get a pincushion in a swap I got 3 today .. (each doll quilt had a small one riding along). Well but this one is very special - well yeah because it's really big and because it's a frog and I have a little somethign for frogs and green. And it came in a July swap - and I'm goign to take it as an early birhtday present.

hehe - me new needle frog ... poor bugger will be hurting so much when I start quilting

So yes I think that poor bugger will be full of those basting pins once I'm done quilting redorangepurple that I spend all evening yesterday on my knees to pin baste. And I always have the pins all over because I just take them out while quitling and throw them on whatever "clear" surface I can find and of course they end up on the floor while I quilt-wrestle ... so maybe not this time.

  1. Hey Leo, Great score with the mail lady! The diamond thingy is very clever. The man with the bat is standing on the 'baseball Diamond' and I think the corner blocks (square in squares) could be considered a diamond pattern from the top?! And on second look I think the entire pattern reiterates that?! Sweet! The frog is very cute! And the 'modern' top has great colors (my kind of loud! lol). I like the solid borders in your quilting project...cheers, CW
