I have been Booed by Pat at Bell Creek Quilts.
Congratulations Rachel. Click on her name to visit her blog. Here is what she won.
I received this beauty from June in NY. She was a swap partner from Swap Bot.
It is almost November and time for a new round of fabric postcard swapping. If you are interested in joining us go over to Brenda’s blog and leave her a comment. We have quite a few ladies swapping with us. It has been so much fun. You can make and send as many as you like and sit out when you want.
We got these wonderful fabric post cards in the mail this week. The top left is from Brenda. Very cool. She has way more patience then I do for that much satin stitching. She also made the one on the bottom right. She sent Tyler and Joshua each one. They love them. The top right is from Carol in Sweden. And the botton left is from Rhonda in Texas.
My momma sent me some money for my birthday. My birthday is tomorrow. I went to hobby Lobby this morning and bought myself some stuff. The jewelry making stuff was on sale. So I bought this chain and pendant for less than $5.00. Thanks mom.
I am in a swap were I have to make two Christmas ornaments made out of felt. I searched the internet looking for ideas. I came up with an angel and gingerbread man. Over all they weren’t too hard. The hardest part was turning them the right way after I sewed them. I had to leave the hole for turning in the gingerbread man larger than I wanted to. So he is stitched up on the left leg. I used wooded beads for the eyes and belly. I thought I would use white rick rack for the trim but I didn’t have any. So the next best thing was to hand stitch the icing. I think he definitely has that handmade look. The angel has some yarn glue to her head for hair and golden wings. I would say the gingerbread man is roughly 4 inches long and the angel is almost 3 inches long.
These will be mailed to my partner who by the way lives in Ireland.
Today was Joshua’s last soccer game for this year. They tied 2-2. It was fun but we froze our buns off. It was 47 degrees at 8am. Burrrr.
