A surprise in the post

A few days ago I found this lovely pumpkin postcard in my post box sent to me by Sheila from Sheila's Quilt World. Isn't it lovely! And a recipe to try too. Thank you very much Sheila, it has pride of place on my desk at the moment.

If you have not yet signed up for Sheila's Christmas postcard swap then you still have time - pay her a visit here to find out all about it and also to see the cutest pig postcard that she has received from a young man!

I have a couple of finishes to show you. First of all I have lined and finished off my hexagon table topper.

Also my Gail Pan Christmas stitchery is now a mini quilt all ready for display in December.

Hope you have a finish or two this week.


  1. My goodness, you HAVE been busy! It's always lots of fun to have a finish or two! Sheila is so darned clever. I'm loving that postcard. How unique!! Have a happy day!

  2. Love your Hexie table topper Lyn! Must be so nice to finish something as gorgeous as that. The pumpkin is so sweet too. XCathy

    Thank you for the beautiful stitched postcard you sent me. I've never seen one close up before and I'm amazed how well it survived the trip to Oz.

  10. That is a sweet postcard. I like your idea of putting it on a little easel.

    Your hexi table mat is so pretty. All those lovely bright colours make me smile.

  12. What a great postcard from Sheila! You do such a nice job with your color choices and placement on your hexie pieces. Quite lovely! Are the solids hand dyed fabrics? Such nice finishes all around....
