First block mailed and a fabulous giveaway

I sent the first completed block of the 2011 Block Swap Adventure off to Rochelle yesterday! It's going all the way to Australia. I kept the receipt with the destination on it, it's in my journal now along with my record of what happened today. My kids will read it sometime in the future and know what Mommy did on Jan 7 and Jan 8, 2011. In one year's time, I will have 12 lovely blocks I can put together in a quilt just for me and my family to snuggle under. All the ladies in the swap will have 12 blocks of their own, as well. That's pretty awesome when you stop to think about it.

This is also pretty awesome--a giveaway by Stray Stitches!  http://straystitches1.blogspot.com/2010/12/lets-celebrate-2011-with-giveaway.html.  Check it out!
