I am so far behind on blogging, so make yourself comfortable if you plan to read this. I was sick most of last week and didn't accomplish much. Unfortunately, tis the season when much needs to be accomplished, so I've been sewing like crazy this week.
FNSI results: only a sneak peak is permissible.
Friday night was spent sewing down bindings on mini quilts! I also worked on an embroidery piece that will be shown as a finished project on Give Away Monday.
OCCUPY your sewing room: I spent most of the day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday in my sewing roon making the aforementioned mini quilts. They are now winging their way around the world. Who knows where they'll show up!
Block Swap Adventure: This is my December block from Shannon, and is a beautiful addition to my basket block collection. This is number 14, so I need to start thinking about a quilt design.
I also received my December hexies from Kathryn, my partner for the Inchy Swap. She even sent a pretty little piece of fabric, which I'm sure is destined to become another flower someday soon.
This swap has been so much fun! It's just a 'little something' each month, but I get to add unique flowers to my garden, and most of the ladies also send a postcard from their area. I'm getting quite a collection.
I also did a private exchange of stitched ornaments with Patty C. Here are the beautiful ornaments that I received from her.
I don't have my tree up yet, but these will be hung front and center when I do.
Be sure to stop by on Monday for the big Giveaway Day, because I'm planning to participate. Read more about it HERE.
It should be a lot of fun, and lots of giveaways!
I guess that's it for tonight. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I'm falling asleep at the keyboard, so I'll call it quits for now. I spent the entire afternoon at a car dealership (crocheting) while DH purchased a new car. Then we went to friends house for a lovely dinner and a glass (or two?) of wine.
Well I'm glad you're feeling better! You got a lot done! "Faith" is just beautiful. Nice swaps, girl! I hope you get a good night's sleep!ReplyDelete
