The bag arrived safe and sound in the USA!!

The bag I made for Linda's bag / bucket swap arrived safe and sound last week to my new friend Pam, aka "The Passionate Purple Quilter". She sent me a lovely email telling me how much she loved it and how I had tied a lot of little bits of her life into the bag. I was so pleased. As this was my first swap I really wanted to do my very best to impress.
Apparently Pam took her new bag to her quilting class on monday night and a few of the ladies were trying to talk her out of taking it back home. They would have gladly taken it off her hands!!

It has been very enjoyable experience and I am waiting in anticipation for my bag/bucket to arrive...

On a differnt note, Noemia, from "a arte dos Trapinhos" has passed on an award to me. It is the blog "Gold Stamp" award. She has been reading my blog for a while now - and I hers - since Linda's swap started. See, joining in swaps is a great way to "meet" new friends!!

Thank you Noemia, I shall have to think of my 15 favourite blogs to pass it on to....In the next post perhaps.

Now, you still have until tomorrow night to be in the draw for my giveaway. You need to leave a comment on my 50th Giveaway post here to be in the draw. My boys will be picking out one name on Tuesday!!

Bye for now, Kathryn. XX

I love my bag and no one is talking me out of it. It is mine and will stay with me forever! Besides, it is purple. It was made by a very lovely lady and I will treasure it always. Thanks again for all your hard work.

Happy Quilting
