Just checking in…

I have been doing lots of sewing……really!!!!!!  Just I haven’t had time to scratch, let alone blog……come on, admit it…..you have weeks like that too, don’t you???

Well,I thought I’d just check in and share what I’ve been up to…. (or a bit of it…..without all the boring day to day stuff)…….

I’ve been working on my ‘secret’ Name Game mini quilt for my ‘secret’ partner (hence my being M.I.A.).  If you look closely, you’ll notice I’ve blanked out my partner’s name so I don’t give it away before she gets it……it’s very bright and cheery…..I’m liking it so far!  It should be posted this week…and yes, I do work best under pressure!!!!

I’ve also been working on some more of my Nice People Nice Things stitcheries, but haven’t got a current photo, but I can inform you that I only have 1 and a bit stitcheries left before I can put this beauty together…..it’s only taken me 3 years!!!!!  Nothing like stretching it out!!!

And this month it was a black and white theme for our  FQ swap….me with my head in a spin, has mine ready to post…..tomorrow!!!….but my partner was very organised and I received mine from Barb last week…..

Not only did Barb send me the two fat quarters, I got threads, ribbon and buttons to match!……beautiful, Barb….thank you!  If you’d like to join us in the FQ swap you still can…..just email Cathy and the girls here.

Amanda sent me these beautiful little fellows….they’re pins…..aren’t they just gorgeous????  she makes them herself…..such a clever gal!  And she was uber-fast……I asked her to make me some one day and they were mailed to me and arrived by the end of the week. They must have ‘flown’ express!!!! bwah ha ha!!!Ok….off to my cave to finish tidying up and to start some machine quilting!!!!!
