Now all I have to do is wait patiently for it to arrive across the pond.............patiently wait.........lol
Wendy doing the happy dance!!
This is the quilt I made for the "Good Ol Summertime" mini quilt swap over on Quilting Gallery. I hope my swap partner likes what I have made her. The lines you see is not thread but the binding pinned in place before it was sewn down. This was a fun little quilt to do and I enjoyed making it.
This is the bag I made for the "Friendship Bag" swap over on Quilting Gallery. I did mine in black and white as that seems to be really popular right now. It was fun and quick. I will be making more of these for gifties at Christmas.
The inside of the bag. I love this fabric and I think I will make myself a larger bag with some of the black/white I have been buying for my stash.
This is what I put inside of the bag. Some moda fat quarters and enough black/white squares to make a mini quilt with if she likes.
This is the next Flower Fairy block I had worked on. I did do more work on it, but forgot to take another pic. Anyhow, this is some of what I did to this block. I just love her sitting in the tree amid the blossoms.
I had been seeing these spools all over blogland and really wanted some of them. Well I hit the sweeps on these babies! I purchased 15 of these at the thrift store for $5.oo. I hope that was a good buy, if not I still wanted them enough to purchase them. I do feel like I got them for a great bargain and I will be looking out for more. I plan to put my lace and ric rac on them. Maybe if I do that it will stay neater in the bins or I may display them in a glass jar or in this wooden bowl after I paint it.
Well hope everyone has a great rest of the week. By the by does anyone know what the above spools were actually used for? Just curious.

I found these great star bowls for .25 each that were left over from the 4th of July. I will be using them at Christmas to put candy and such in. Aren't they great I bought six of them to use for the upcoming Christmas holidays.
I am working on more items but cannot post pics as of yet. I also need to post pics of the last Flower Fairy block and will do that one day next week. I am caught up on everything finally and will have more pics to show when some packages arrive at their destinations. Have a good afternoon everyone.
