On fire.....

Not literally of course as clearly I couldn't blog at the same time as being on fire! Now I wasn't scheduled to blog today, it deffo wasn't on the list for today but I'm just so excited that I had to share my morning with you!!

Ok so I embroidered the Merry Legs on the Flower Sugar as I said I would and I quilted in a shadow style a 1/4 inch either side of all the seams. I was then interuppted by the postie who was bringing me a box of goodies all the way from the USA!! It was my swap goodies from the Tim Burton-esque Valentines Swap organised by Apryl.

Look at the lovely things Deanna sent me, I'm so happy! The remit was something crafty, something handmade and some chocolate and we had to answer questions regarding our fave Tim Burton movie to help our partner, so you can guess mine yes??!

Deanna has clearly stalked my blog as she made me a new Kindle pouch and sent me a book to read too. Here's the fabric and chocolate she sent::

Its just so lovely! When I bit into the chocolate heart it was jelly inside. Yum Yum!!

So back to the Flower Sugar::

I've finished it and am so damn pleased with it. It looks awesome and will be great for 'Little Miss H'. Can you guess what it will be?? I'll have a Ta Dah! moment in a few days when it's in place and you'll be amazed - promise!

Now for some important news:: Within the next week I'll hit my 100th blog post. Wowser! So what's a girl to do to mark such an important occassion????
