"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

A small project finished, and some goodies in the mail.

I finally got this little stitchery block finished, and it is in the mail to Fiona in Qld, who is one of the Quilting Angels who is making up quilts for flood victims up there, from the blocks being stitched by volunteers all over Australia and overseas.
One of my many cyberspace friends collects antique sewing tools and haberdashery. I was able to add to her collection when we were cleaning out MIL's home and nobody else wanted her sewing basket. Marian was delighted with what I sent her, and in return, she sent me some vintage linen UFOs to play with, as well as this cute needlecase. I didn't know what it was at first, as it was in a cellophane bag, but when I took it out, I noticed it was several layers, and lifted one up to find the pins. Lovely! Thanks heaps, Marian ;-)

Hi Gina!
The needlecase was made by a friend of mine. She does lovely work. I am glad that you liked the UFO's and I know that you will be able to turn them into "Undeniably Fantastic One-of-a-kinds"!! ... take care, Marian (up too late again!)
