Pillow Fight

It pouring with rain here, gloomy and dark but that cannot dampen my excitement. The postmen delivered my Pillow Fight Package a little while ago and LOOK AT WHAT I GOT!!!
This came from the lovely Reene, over at Nellie's Niceties pop over and see what she got in the swap.
Reene organised this 2nd round of the Brit Swap and from the moment she started posting her wip pics on flickr I had very strong feelings that this cushion was going to be mine. My "request" was for something to live in my sewing room which has a sort of Americana theme going on, so I said I like red, blue & cream. Perfect interpretation. I love stars, paper piecing and wow, is this a complex pp project.
Making friends with the other cushions.
See how well it fits in.
The pics are all just a tiny bit orangey, poor, poor light today.
And, I got extras, chccy and scraps - perfect.
 Thank you Reene, for my beautiful cushion, and for organising the Swap.

Yesterday, my partner Karen,  received her package from me -

So that's another swap done & dusted. If any of you are still dithering over whether or not to try a swap - jump in. It's scary, challenging & fun!!
