so when we got back....

my lovely mother in law had been collecting our mail and there was a great big pile of softy envelopes for ME!!!!  yay!!!!

she of course knows me by my alias of housewife, mother and daughter-in-law, not the quilt-crazy Crafty Pug, so there were a few raised eyebrows :)

the first package opened was from block swap partner for this month Alicia from the US!  she very graciously sent two blocks - the first i attempted to get the little human to 'hold up for mummy'..... this was the result

so this is what it actually looks like!  very very beautiful

and this is the second - just gorgeous with immaculate piecing!

so a big THANKS to Alicia

then i opened a package from Maria and was greeted with this cheerful and lovely Christmas star block to open my collection of christmas blocks - beautiful!

thanks so much Maria!!

pugs and kisses
