More rainbow fun!

Today I received my second goody swap parcel in the post! Squeeeee!!!! It's more rainbows! My partner Camille has got my likes super spot on! Check out the scrummy rainbow goodness of this ticker tape mug-rug:



I think it's inspired by one of my favourite mug rugs ever:

Found @ Flickr via Patchwork Queen

Or possibly one that I made in the previous Brit Quilt swap round:


Either way I LOVE it! She also sent a super cute little pinwheel pinnie, a FQ of this lovely Jennifer Paganelli print, and some little printed fabric labels. 


Thanks so much Camille! I know I was sort of dumped on you quite late in the game (through no fault of you, me or Cindy... just a swapper gone bad!), so thank you for all your efforts stalking my favourites and making something amazing in a short space of time!

Also in the mail today, was something I've been lusting after for a long time... (Sorry to disappoint ladies, it wasn't Christian Slater....)





I'm looking forward to starting some rainbow projects of my own to break into my new rainbow stash of perle cotton #8!
