Coin purse, books and fabrics

This week I finished this little coin purse.  I purchased the kit and  this has been my introduction to wool applique.
The pieces are very small and fiddly but once I got the hang of it I completed it quite fast.


I have worked on other projects ( including my secret quilt) but at this stage none of them are completed to show you nor I can blog until the recipient of the swap receives the blocks.

                      I started a new  project on the 27th  April called "Listen to My Heart". 


I came up with this idea as a form of meditation to focus on the inner voice which is my heart. 
Basically the way it works for me,  is that each day (just before going to bed)  I applique a heart and while stitching I reflect and sometimes write down some thoughts that come into my mind.

I'll keep on doing these until I feel it's time to stop but having a practical side to me,  I'll make these blocks into a small quilt as soon as I have about 12 done.

Some new goodies that I got this week.....

Lynette Anderson's latest book and some of her fabrics.  

3 other books and some bright fabrics...

And a variety of gorgeous charm packs from Kate Spain, Joanna Figueroa, 3 Sisters and Howard Marcus.
Not sure exactly what I'm going to do with them at the moment but I could not pass up a 25% discount.
