Kwaacked was my Secret Santa and part of her gift was a tin of clippy things



A beautifully gift wrapped case of (what Im reliably told are) Bingolar Sewing Clips ....

Now, although I have seen these once before, I have never actually used them so it will be fun working out what to do with them ...

add to that some new flower-headed pins, (of which I regularly need new recruits) and the badly behaved behemoth of wadding, (not shown as it wanted to swamp everything else in the pic) .... 

and I feel very spoiled , Thank you so much Kwwaacked, stuff like pins (along with blades and new needles) are always the last things I will buy for myself for some reason so they will come in very handy.


There was also a book on miniature Japanese quilts which arrived in February.

I had never used the clips before but I wouldnt be without them now ... Pain free binding! Bliss!

Well, even if you don't go, the quilt will show them how much you care.   :)

Wow!  That is one fabulous quilt and such lovely colours.  What an absolutely super present.  The whole thing inspires me.  Thank you so much for posting all the pics too - very helpful!

How are you anyway? I hope all this busy-ness has kept your mind off other stuff. xx
