Very Quick Christmas Fabric, Button & Trim Swap 2009!

I received the best package from my swap partner Rebecca from Australia. This was a very quick swap in that you had one week to gather some things for your partner and send out. I love everything Rebecca sent. She sent the sweetest scissor holder I have ever seen, fabric, and really cute buttons and trim.Thank you so much for being a great partner and friend.

Amy at Park City Girl is having a virtual quilt show. I thought I might join in this time. Make sure you hop on over and look at all the beautiful quilts being shown. This is a quilt I made for my son's 20th birthday. It is in his school colors and there are not any girly black and white fabrics(a very real challenge). This quilt was quilted by Russ and Rhonda at Back Porch Quilts. This was a momentous time for me as I now do not have a teenager anymore. He wasn't sure whether he liked it or not til he took it to school and all the girls ooh and aah over his quilt. I have since gotten several thanks, mom for the quilt and I love its.

A few new things

I am in a group on Ravelry called the Pin cushion group. We make and swap pin cushions and other fun things. Right now a few of us are doing quilting bees. We are in hives of four and will swap 2 blocks with each and then mix up the people and have new hives. We each sent some fabric to the others and an idea about what kind of blocks we might want. I am in the Wagglers of Hive C. I received my first blocks from Linda. I love them.
I am also in a group that swaps wee tiny socks. They are so much fun and I recieved a great package from another Linda. There were a lot of firsts for her. First sock, first stitch markers, some of her first spindle spun yarn. Really a great package.
Aren't I the luckiest?

Wee Tiny Sock Club

I am in the Wee Tiny Sock Club. June's wee sock is a pretty wedding sock. These are so addictive to knit as they only take a small amount of yarn and there is no chance of SSS as you only need to knit one.

I have done a few things this year.

I have knitted, sewed and quilted a few things this year. Actually, quite a few, but I will just show you a few from lately. First up is a doll I made for Craft Hope . They were collecting to take on a mission trip.
Next is a nun doll and a pug puppy I made for the dollywood swap on Ravelry pincushion group

Next up is the quilt I made for earthquake children of Abruzzo. Definitely needed to be cowboy fabric if it was coming from Texas.
I hope to be better about posting. We have finally finished all the repairs from Hurricane Ike and now we can start on some home updating. I hope 2009 is treating you well.
