What I Have Been Up To

Well the title of this should be something else I guess since I have not been doing a whole lot. I have been having some health issues so not much sewing, quilting going on. I did finally receive my Tussie Mussie swap box on today. Here is the one I sent my partner and here is what she sent to me:





And this is what was inside........a cute little pin cushion made like a teacup and some nail polish with accessories.
Thank you Ruth for the lovely items that you sent. The basket is very pretty and looks vintage-ish from the Victorian era. The next thing is this lovely swan planter that I found while out thrifting with my brothers girlfriend.
This swan is large and I am trying to find a 24"   bottle brush sisal tree to put in the back. I am hoping to find one soon so I can embellish it with vintage jewelry and all things sparkly. Last but not least I have pulled my fabric for Esther's new BOM  "   In The Pink"
Hopefully I can get the first set of blocks cut out soon and start on this wonderful quilt. I am progressing on the blue quilt but am keeping it a secret so my mom does not see it before it is ready. I will post pics of the progress soon. 


Happy Stitching,
Wendy

I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Imagine my surprise when Cathy contacted me to tell me that I had won her giveaway! I am so doing the happy dance and this was such a pick me up. Below is what I won and it arrived today. Thank you Cathy for being so generous.

All this lovely thread. I took the pic off of Cathy's blog as I could not find my camera. Anyhow, these threads will be put to good use in future crazy quilt projects.

Happy Stitching,

New BOM from Esther/ In The Pink


I wanted to mention that Esther from here:  http://estheraliu.blogspot.com/  has launched her new BOM for 2010. This is a bed size quilt and is gorgeous. Esther has used pinks for hers but you could use any color theme to suit your own taste. This is going to work up really easy as well. You should go on over and check it out, the blocks will be up for one month on the 15th of each month. After the 15th you will be able to purchase the previous months block. Since this is block one you will be good to go. Also she has a full pic of the quilt and it will leave you drooling over it as it is so pretty.......

Some Swap Goodies

Here are some items I have made for some swaps that I have been in and have not posted about. These are what I have sent to my partners. The first one is a Tussie Mussie swap and this is the one I made for my partner which was Ruth. Also included in the box was three fat quarters for her.
This photo does not do the colors justice. The green is a wonderful lime green and the purple is irredescent. I also used some vintage crochet for the top. The next swap was for the Spring FQ swap over on Dutch Colors. We were to make a little something and send our partners two fat quarters. When I came across this little shoe I just had to have it to make a pin cushion for my swap partner. When I bought it most of the beads were gone from it. This was actually a flower pick. But I just knew it would be a cute pincushion. So I rebeaded it and used some blue velvet I have for my crazy quilting. I think it turned out really well. I sent four fat quarters, some note cards and a kitchen towel set. Oh, I also decorated the box I sent it in to look Spring like. It is a photo holder box so Zuzana can use it to keep photo's in as well. Hope she likes it.



I liked the little shoe so much I went back and purchased a green one for myself. I still have to rebead it and make the pincushion part. I will show pics of it when I finish it. This one was so easy to make and I think it is cute. I am finally getting back to normal after all the sinus crud going on. Also, I won the threads on Cathys blog! I will post a pic of them when they arrive until then.........

Happy Stitching,
