Zaki Gets Goodie Again

No I`m not talking about his behaviour..but the second and sadly last Goodie Swap 2011 parcel I received today from lovely Janine at Rainbow Hare.


Yes. Zaki received another goodie in the mail.  See the very cute Scottie dog mug rug there at the back - that`s his and he absolutely loves it. Initially he did comment, `Oh mummy - nice goats!  No, no they`re dogs mummy!`

Janine used pretty pink and green fabrics to create a gorgeous reversible mug rug for me. On the back of mine are gorgeous little square blocks. There`s also the cutest pincushion - my first, and a diary cleverly starting now, covered in yummy pink and green paisley fabric.  Now Janine had no idea how much I love diaries - so this is very smart of her and just a great goodie for me. Despite the package having been rifled through by custums, it all arrived beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and tied with ric rac.  I am very very happy and thank you so much Janine - I love my goodies and so does Zaki.

Other exciting mail included lots of good quality cotton thread from my lovely helpful mummy (who arrives Saturday and I think should do a guest post as she is very creative and is thinking about starting her own blog) and the quilting feet for my new machine.  So now I can join in with Cindy`s Free Motion Quilting Practicealong, which kicks off tomorrow.  I have attached the requisite foot to my machine.  Now I have to look at some youtube tutorials to try and get something passable to post. Who on earth pushed Cindy into hosting something like this? 

Edited to add In my haste to hit the`post` button, while being chivvied by my mad for dinosaurs 3 year old to get off the lap top so that he could watch Walking with Dinosaurs on youtube, I completely overlooked thanking the most important person. A huge huge thank you to Cindy who organised this swap and made it possible.    Thank you Cindy! You kept us all in order and organized the whole thing with military precision.  It has been a pleasure to find a new blog pal in you.

You should definately get your mum to do a guest spot and make it a family affair. She would soon get sucked into the blog world. lol
