The past week I have been battling an upper respiratory infection and my head has been in a fog. Needless to say, there has not been a lot of productivity from this end. The one thing that I did get finished was my needlecase for the Sewing With Friends Swap. Since it has arrived at my swap partner's house, I can share it with you.
Ida has a pet turtle, as do wee, so I took off on that idea. I really had fun creating this little guy.
.......but, best of all, look at what Ida made for me. I just love how elegant this crazy quilt needlecase is. She did such a fabulous job on it and filled it with all sorts of terrific goodies. I love how personalized it is with the "M" on one side and the cowboy boot (Ida lives in Texas) on the other. This has been such a fun group for swapping.
I was really glad to see Kate start up her newest swap - ALQS8. I LOVE the way this swap is run and I have been thrilled with each round that I have been a participant. This one is for a mini quilt so check it out and join in if you are interested.
I had a really fun win arrive in the mail this week too. This was from Jamie at Busy Bee Quilts . Isn't the emergency thread kit a great idea? It's all the colors that you are constantly needing. Of course I love the jelly roll and look forward to using that in the near future. Thanks so much, Jamie.
Since I have spent the better part of the week sitting around, I did make some great progress on my Christmas Stocking. I am now onto the outlining stage.
One last small project that I tackled was another friendship bag. The colors don't show up well, but it is in purples, blues and pinks.
