Melly & Me Swapness

Yesterday afternoon someone answered the door to Australia Post and brought this package in to me. It is from Janine who is my Melly & Me scrappy swap partner and she sent me some of the most beautiful scraps ever! Her parcel actually made my day. I have been in bed the past three days thanks to the kids who shared their germs with me this week. I am asthmatic and tend to be allergic to any virus' or bacterial infections. So when I'm sick I end up in bed because my breathing is usually affected. This year the germs seem to be starting early. Last year I didn't get sick until August.

Mr 7 fell in love with this little charm that Janine included. It's a little pincushion and is so sweet! I have packed up my scraps for Janine today and will post them off tomorrow. I'm a little behind. It was a lot of fun to go through my scraps. It was inspiring actually. I got to touch lots of fabrics and all sorts of project ideas started to fill my mind. I'm sorting fabric next in my sorting year and now I can't wait!
