I mailed 2 swaps off today - I don't think I can show either of them yet. I found the cottage blocks that have been showing up on blogs. I decided to do some of them and they are addictive. I've got some halloween cottages coming along. I'll post these once I get them into a top of some sort. I took a trip to my local quilt shop - with the gift certificate that I'd won this summer and bought some fat quarters and this pattern. The patterns are for the doll quilt 5 swap - for someone who likes brown and pink. I also got a bunch of freebie magazines - that's just like Christmas for me.
