Second Post: Crafty Update

This is my little bag from the "Friendship Bag" swap over on Quilting Gallery. Isn't it lovely! I just love it. It came all the way from Italy. My swap partner was Claudia. I love the fabric she used in the little bag. The colors are so yummy and the inside lining has little birds on it. So cute! These are the neatest little bags and will make great Christmas gifties as they are so easy and quick to sew up. I am going to be making some this year.
My swap partner also sent me a cute pin cushion to match with these lovely butterfly pins. There was a pretty purple one but my lovely daughter Bliss took it! She said I could share the wealth!lol. A few posts ago I showed the little bag that I sent to my partner. Thank you so much Claudia. These little gifties are so timely for me since it has been a stressful month they have added a little sunshine to my day!
I received this swap item in the mail last week. It is my mug hug swap. My partner was Jeanette from New Zealand. She should be getting hers soon also, until then I cannot post a pic of what I sent. This was a fun swap consisting of a coaster and cup/mug hugger. These would make great little Christmas gifties.
This is the full shot of both trees that I put on Beth's block. I was in a Fantasy Landscape RR on CQFN until my mom had her stroke. I dropped out because I did not know if I could keep up my end on time because at the time we did not know how bad my mom was. This is the work I did for Beth and the only block I got to work on. Hopefully next time I can join them again. I enjoyed working on Beth's block as her theme was Bridge to Teribithia and she said it would be a good block for trees. Hope she likes what I did to her block.
This is a willow tree. I had fun making this one. I just love willows, my mom has one out back at her house that is just lovely.
This is a type of pine tree I did for Beth's block
I have received my block back from the group today. Janet and Lesa have worked on my block and I will post pics of it later. The camera battery is charging. I will finish this block on my own since I had to drop out of the RR.

I also had to drop out of the Winter/Christmas 2 RR on CQI when all this happened. I did not even get to mail out my blocks on this one. I am going to work on them myself. I have decided to work on them each week when I take mom for her Dr.'s appt. Since she has to go weekly it will be time well spent stitching for me. I should be able to finish them soon. I will post pics of those later also. They are so cute. I used some penguin fabric I had and did a winter theme.
Again a big thank you for those who have been sending up prayers for my mom. God has answered and been so good to us.
Until next time,

Happy Stitching
