Several things to show.

I’ve been sewing this foundation pieced table runner. I am happy with how it turned out and really enjoy foundation piecing. It creates a challenge.

It’s a free pattern and I found it HERE.

I have been also stitching these little flowers in the 2” squares of my Simple Things quilt that I did with Kelly from Charming Chatter. I have alternated them with blue and red. Only about 5 to go and then I can quilt the top and bind it. Yay!

 Kelly did ‘words’ in her 2” squares but I wanted to have little flowers….I do love flowers.
Little flower
I thought perhaps you would like to have the little flower to stitch too in something. Just right click the picture and save to your computer. It should fit into a 2” square. Please only use it for personal use ….thanks.

I was invited to join in an online swap that Maree organised and my partner was Alison….and Toni was to send to me.
This was so exciting and I had the parcel a couple of days prior to opening day so I put it in a place where I couldn't see it or I would have opened it early.

Inside the parcel was lots of goodies and don't you just love the denim Christmas Stocking Toni made for me.
Thanks Toni and of course I love all the goodies that were inside the stocking.

I have eaten all the choccies and lollies …very yummy!
Have a great weekend everyone
Hugs to all……

Vicki your little daisy is so sweet.. I'm saddened to hear that it's been copied and claimed as another designer's 'original'. I wonder what the magazine editor would think...
On another note, I love your quilt! Very pretty :)
