I finally heard from Cheryll,the Queen of Swaps that Carolyn had finally got my Hot Pad I sent her way back on the 11th of April. It must have been taking a super long trip by plane.
Anyway without further ado I present Carolyn's Hot Pad.
Carolyn had requested her Hot Pad to be in Red, Lime Green, Grey,Black and White. I managed to get them all in. I got my inspiration from the book Scandinavian Stitches.
In the book there was only the tree and clothesline but I added a little carrot patch to the side of the tree. Carolyn's blog is called "The Veggie Hunter"
Now this is the back of the Hot Pad. I noticed on Carolyn's blog that they are undergoing some home renovations. I hope your home is all back together soon.
I have just finished a fairly big project so wanted to do a few small things before I start on the next project. I found I had a partially completed pair of board shorts on a square. I started this block when I was making the beach quilt and lost it in "The Sewing Room". It re-surfaced when I was looking for something else as this is what normally happens. I also made up a cat applique. Two completed Mug Mats for very little effort. The cat material they are sitting on is the backing for the cat one and the same Hibiscus print is on the surfie shorts.

I received a lovely email from my partner Colleen the other day and this is what I will be sending her to make something special for me. We had to include two fat quarters some thread and any extras. I found a Butterfly that I did a test run on for some machine embroidery. It has been floating around the sewing room so may as well be included. I added a beautiful rose button and some ric-rac. What project wouldn't be complete without it.
Now I posted a huge parcel of today and of course when I got home I immediately remembered about the Paper Bag Swap so I guess we will be going via the Post Office on our walk this afternoon.
Have a wonderful weekend.
