My Colour swap parcel

I heard from my partner that she received her colour swap. Her colour was "colours of the rainbow". One of our items had to be handmade so I made a Christmas ball - it took a lot of work, you sewed all the circles and gathered them by hand - I lost count of how many I had to make. I also sent an olive dish, some coloured piping, some coloured Xmas balls, two fat quarters of NZ icon fabric that were vibrant colours & some sequins and glass beads. She said she liked it but I noticed she didn't include it in her blog. Oh well it was a bit of fun anyway. Here is what I sent:

I have a million things I want to try and achieve this weekend so I should get on to them. I want to finish my 11th block for my quilt and a couple of Halloween wallhangings as that is fast approaching again. I also need to find a couple of birthday presents for dear friends & clean out my "junk" draw in the kitchen. Not to mention there is a 21st scrap book album I want to make a start on! I guess sitting here at the computer won't achieve much so I will away and get started. Happy weekend everyone.
