Oh, how I suck at this blog posting thing! I sew, sew, sew and then neglect to post pics here. So I'll try to redeem myself, and post a bit of what's been going on in the sewing room since March! Because I know you're not all that interested in how EXTREMELY glad I am school is out for the summer! I'm so tired of homework (my kids homework). . .tangent. . .sorry. . .
I've participated in a number of swaps this Spring, and it was totally fun! Some of my secret swap partners are overseas and it has been a bucket of sneaky goodness stalking them. . .
To Give. . .
|This mini quilt was made for my partner in the DS Mini Quilt Swap. I love the prints Denyse Schmidt has released for Fabric Traditions. The aqua/blue/green colorway are my favorite~and my partner's too. This mini is on it's way to England!|
|Sewing machine cover, a catch-all basket and some favorite Amy Butler fabrics are my swap collaberative for Modern She Made. Scraps from my bin, a new favorite~Essex Yarn-Dyed in Flax, and a text print for Timeless Treasure made this project super fun! Part of the swap guidelines were to include something circular in the project~thus the pebble quilting. This is also on it's way to the UK.|
These are the goodies I received from Colby in the Potholder Pass. The potholders are perfect for my kitchen! I love them! They match my cookie jar and canisters! But, I'm not using them~they are just for show. My "used" potholders look like they've been to hell and back! These are too pretty to dirty up!
A Tidbit From The Garden. . .
Well, my summer plan is to get all caught up with my bloggy friends (Dee, Terri, etc.,) I heart you all! And some catch up time is definitely needed!
