Last of the Treasures

Leave a comment

The last of three ‘newbie gifts’ from last year’s Postage Stamp Quilt swap arrived in the post a couple of days ago. These were from Irene, in the States; unfortunately the first ones she sent didn’t show up, so she kindly posted a second batch. I wondered if the others had been somehow caught up in the Christmas mail; I kept hoping they would arrive, but there’s been no sign of them yet!

Thanks Irene for this colourful mix!

Now to decide where to go from here. A reasonable-sized quilt will need anywhere from 1000-4000 x 2.5″ squares – see here for approximate figures. So far I have about 200…

Married to a very lucky man (he sometimes agrees), I'm learning to be a better wife, homemaker, & step-mum to two adult children and their other halves. I enjoy thinking, writing, nature, travelling, reading, photography and other creative pursuits, and spending time with friends & family (not necessarily in that order). I work part-time with children & their families. I have too much stuff (working on that) and am not a morning person... that about covers it for now.
