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

I had to post this as I just found out that I won one of the Under The Gum Trees drawings. I won Cheryl of Willowberry Designs drawing! I am doing the happy dance. I love her work, you need to go over there and check out her blog! While there look at her patterns and such, she is a great designer. You can find her here:
Now all I have to do is wait patiently for it to arrive across the pond.............patiently

Wendy doing the happy dance!!

Whew How Time Flies!

Okay, I have been working on something and here is a sneak peek. Can't show it all to you as it is a giftie for someone. When they receive it I will post a full pic of it then. As you can see from this post I have been busy although not with posting. Sorry about that but my time has really been crunched with working on several projects with deadlines and doing some remakes on others. Add dr. appts, sitting at hospital and just doing regular family stuff and you will see why I have not been posting. Although I have been busy. I have several more projects finishing up and when they arrive at their destinations I will post pics of them here. In the meantime, I will have other items to post about.

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.

Happy Stitching,

Something I Have Been Working On

This is a little project that I have been working on for someone and it is now ready to be quilted. I call it Lilly's Sunset. Now to quilt it and send it on to its new owner.

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.

Happy Stitching,
