This is the pinnie that I made for my partner in the FLiPS swap. There’s a fairy that lives inside! My partner received it, so I can show it now!

I used an orphan block that I had left over from DQS (Doll Quilt Swap) on flickr. I love it when orphan blocks can be used in new ways! Don’t you?!

Thanks for stopping by!


An option for FLiPS…

IMG_0978Many of you may know that I am a Swap-a-holic.  I can’t seem to help myself!  LOL!  I belong to a flickr group called, “Fab Little Pincushion Swap” or “FLiPS” for short…  I’m playing around with some free patterns that I’ve found online.  This one is from the following blog:  Thanks Penny!  And to all those creative people who make patterns free to us junkies.  Er.  Creative folk.

I, of course had to add some flying triangles because that’s how I am…  I also shortened it a step and machine stitched my elongated hexies together…  (I stopped exactly on the corner so I could still hand stitch the hexies to the end.)   It’s a fun pattern and I’m sure I’ll make it again!  😉

???????????????????????????????Here’s a close up of the center!  I love Kaffee dots…  Must. have. more.

Thanks for visiting!!!  Stitch on…

Pincushion goodness arrives in Utah!!!

I participated in the Fabulous Little Pincushion Swap on flickr… It’s a secret swap that allows people to show all the fun pincushions that might be coming their way! I coveted these little mice that mamacjt made, but I was sure I wasn’t lucky enough to be her partner!

This is how Carol packaged all the goodies that she sent!  It was like Christmas!!!  (And you have to know that I’ll make use of the yellow ribbons she tied them with!  LOL!)

I excitedly opened all the fun little packages to reveal their contents!  I had a “draining” morning was just so tuckered out, but this gave me a definite lift!!!!  Inside all the little packages was the loot shown below…

Thanks for all the wonderful goodies Carol!  What an awesome swap!  Thanks to all the swap mamas too for another wonderfully run swap!!!  The swap with the mostest!  Off to eat some chocolate…
