International Siggy Swap - Helen McNaught

I got this lovely siggy yesterday from Helen McNaught of Queensland, Australia. Helen has a lovely blog of her own called Aunt Henny's. Helen lives in Bardon, near Brisbane, right by the Bardon Scenic Reserve. Helen said she lives in beautiful bushland and gets lots of interesting "visitors" like Kookaburras, Possums, lizards and many varieties of birds. I went to my LQS on Friday to buy some of my favorite Presencia thread. I took two swatches of Minkee fabric with me to match with. [Remember I'm making all my quilts this year starting with the back side. 8) ] The thread doesn't come in that many colors, but look at this, they both match perfectly. How about that!I'm making good progress and am almost half done with the white work section of the English Garden sampler. I also got the last of the pink-backed First Steps quilts quilted and trimmed. It just needs to be bound now (my least favorite bit.)
