This week has been all about catching up with my swaps and getting them out into the mail. Then stalking the mailman. Seriously, I haven't been this excited to see the mailman since I was a kid.
I sent out my scraps for Sew Sara Scrap Swap and have been receiving some in return. I swear I could spend hours going through fabric. I makes me want to start another scrap quilt.... maybe an Irish Chain. Ohhh that sounds like fun. It has been ages since I made one of those. Oops sorry I am rambling...back to the swap.
Karen (on the right) and I are definitely on the same wave length. There was more than one print in her pile that I seen in my stash over the years. And Genie (on the left) included a cute little coffee cozy that she made for me. How sweet was that! She even included the instructions. I hope they enjoy opening my scraps as much as I have enjoyed opening theirs.
Last week I asked for suggestions for some goodies to go along with my Pin Cushion, for the swap over at Cara Quilts. I got some great ideas and from that I had a brainstorm to make a needle book. Then, of course, I got her some needles to go along with it. Something we never think to buy but always need. Sometimes I just need a little push in the right direction.
Thanks! You Girls Rock!
Here is a picture of the inside.
Also, I am going to put together a tutorial for the pin cushion and needle book but will wait to post them till after my partner receives her goodies. That seems only fair.
Have a minute? See what others are up to.
