It's April!

This is the bit where I say that I can't believe it's April already. In fact it has been April for a couple of days! I have been busy doing very little. Today I even went to a Tupperware Party. I haven't done that for about 17 years! Mrs 24 (picklesticks) had a tupperware party at her house today which required some familial support. So I went and so did Mr 20, Miss 18, Mr 14 and Mr 8. When I got home Australia Post had delivered a paperbag of goodies to me. This is part of Missymack's paperbag swap. Leah sent me a bag of goodies to turn into a gift for her! This is quite a different swap than I am used to and I am looking forward to getting started on it! I have yet to send my paperbag to Leah, so I will have to get going! Even Leah's paperbag was cute!

I think April will be another busy month. Next week is easter. We are going away camping and I am looking forward to it very much. It will be a great opportunity to stitch. I have a couple of months of a block of the month to stitch and I want to work on my redwork cushion swap too. We have a birthday during the easter break and then another later in the month. The school holidays are after easter and near the end of the month I will be going to Quilt Fabric Delight's Inspired Stitches Retreat. I can't wait for that either. I was reading Leanne Beasley's blog this week (one of the tutors) and words like only 23 days to go were being bandied around! I think April will whizz by! I'd better get my running shoes on!

The paperbag swap sounds like fun! Lucky you to have the Inspired STitches retreat to look forward to. Have a great camping trip.

The year is going fast isn't it? I thought about doing that paper bag swap, but with being sick, I have got so far behind with things that I decided not to. I will be interested to see what you make from the bag you received.
take care

i just sent my paperbag swap off yesterday (hangs her head in shame). i haven't received mine yet though so we must be equally slack partners :)
the retreat sounds great. i often wish i could go to these things - they sound like so much fun.
enjoy your camping trip - where are you off to?
