Picture post and thank yous!

as I mentioned in my last post, I have received a lot of goodies in the last little while!
From Paula Ozier in the Picnic BBQ Mini QT Swap I received this beauty!
Picnic I Spy, Mini QT
Paula designed all the fabrics you see in it!  Pretty cool, what???  Go here to check out more of Paula's fabrics and designs.  She included 2 wonderful FQ that are just so pretty!
Paula's fabrics
Thank you Paula!
Then when I met up with Isabell, she presented me not only with my postcard but with all these goodies!
Thank you Isabell!
And I received my Potholder Pass 3 potholders and were they worth waiting for!!!  They match my new kitchen perfectly!  Thank you Karen!

there were potholders, dish towels and fridge magnets in the package - all absolutely gorgeous!
Then there were all the 3.5" blocks from the Bitty Block Committe swap - aren't they fabulous?  Still a few more to come - I'll end up with 13 this round 
Thank you to all my swap partners!
and here's a picture of the 4x6ers Ocean postcards - just one more to come
another big thank you!

and finally, here's what I've been working on:
for the 15 minutes of Play - wonky stars and blocks
15 minute fun small
and my DQS9 mini progress shot (DQS blog here)

I'm hoping to actually get the applique done today and get started on the quilting.  Have to say, I'm not sure about how it's turning out, and am thinking I may have to try a different variation, but we'll see once I get some more done on it!
Happy quilting!

OH wow, Janet, how fantastic to receive all these wonderful gifts.

It was so lovely to meet you a few weeks ago and to chat. Thank you for your lovely journal gift and fabric postcard. I shall treasure both.

I love your swirling waves and look forward to seeing the finished piece.
