Easter swap, farmers wife quilt and new tilda fabric

 My lovely friend Anthea from Hibiscus stitches and I decided to do a little easter swap with each other. Here are the beautiful gifts Anthea kindly send me. A gorgeous wall hanging complete with hanger. We both love Nat Bird designs so we decided to make each other a Birdhouse design.
 All these goodies were in a gorgeous little easter bag, there is ribbons and bunny candles all so cute
 and this gorgeous little lay bird full of choccies. Thankyou so much Anthea. I will share the gifts I made as soon as the postman delivers them to Anthea.
 I have started putting my farmers wife blocks together, this takes some time but I only have 3 rows to go.


 There was much excitement at work on Thursday when   we got 2 boxes full of new tilda fabrics. They are so soft and pretty. I bought 4 pieces but I'm sure I will buy the others as they are just so lovely. There is talk of a tilda tea party at work so that will be lots of fun.
Right, I must do some house work before I  head to my sewing room to put the final touches on a few more easter swaps. Oh I love sewing..... but I guess you already knew that.
Have a wonderful day.
