At several points during this year I thought it was going to give up the ghost but bravely it plodded on and has once more produced the most beautiful pink flowers!!
I did say the cactus was only the beginning of the treat....envelopes from all over the country have been plopping through my letterbox on a nearly daily basis. The postman must be exhausted having to carry my post around all the time! For as you know, I am hosting the Sewing Box ATC swap and I now have all of the cards ready to be swapped out!
Aren't they lovely? It's going to be difficult to choose which ones I want to keep!! Maybe I will have to do it with my eyes closed- I do love hosting!
I have also had some returns for my Tree swap.

I have lots of deadlines coming up this month (both ATC and university related) and I think I am well on the way to finishing and posting off a load. Currently I am working on a Christmas fabric patchwork which is a collaborative piece. All the ladies signed up to this swap (there are 10 of us) have been assigned a different size and shape and have to make one for everyone else in the swap, including themselves, so at the end all the sections can be fitted together in a festive patchwork!!
I am making mine mini patchworks and will embellish with ribbons and Christmassey buttons/beads/sequins- anything I can find. Hopefully they will look lovely and I'm really looking forwards to getting everyone's pieces at the end!!
