Swap Mail and Giveaway

Yippee, my little quilt for ALQS2 arrived in the mail today.

It's gorgeous and I love, love, love it. Alicia from lucysquilts has done such a wonderful job on this little beauty. The colours work so well together and the pinwheels are 3D, how clever!

I'm not the best photographer . . . the sun was going down . . . and everything is sooooo dry, my lawn crackles when you walk on it. The first photo is taken on the lawn, it really is brown. The lumpy looking photo is taken on a bale of mulch hay. I need to get that on the garden as soon as possible.

Thankyou to Kate for organising, this is my first time with ALQS and I've enjoyed it heaps.
I can just hear the rain starting on the roof now, so fingers crossed.
I also noticed when I went to post that this is my 100th.
So .... Yes .... I will be having a giveaway ... pop back when I post next to find out more about it. I'm off to a quilting retreat this weekend so I probably won't be posting till after then, hopefully with lots of pics.
(This is the 3rd time I've edited this post, I can't keep the line spacings where I want them.)
