My parcel for the Fabric addict swap organised by Helen at arrived this afternoon...

I was partnered with Beki The ramblings of an everyday Mummy.

Beki sent me a really fantastic parcel.  Firstly this Log cabin patchwork book that will be the perfect inspiration when choosing blocks for the Fresh and Funky quilt block bee.

Along with the book came the most gorgeous fabric bundle with some of my favorite prints, ribbons, bows, buttons, binding, lace and a lovely handmade pin cushion, which I have only just realised as iItype this, has lavender in ! Mmmmm..(or should that be ZZzzz)..

So, a BIG thank you to Beki for such a well thought out and perfect parcel of goodies..

And also thank you to Helen for making the time to organise it !

Footnote: Can I just say a  thank you to all the people who have joined in the Fresh and Funky quilting bee, we have 7 Brits, 7 Americans and 1 New Zealander and are now full !  I think both Julie and I are glad to have got most of the organising bit out of the way and are looking forward to the challenge of creating some fresh and funky blocks..
