For my MQTS Partner…

February 20, 2016

I’m not swapping much online anymore, but I still join in the flickr MQTS swap when they have a swap that I’m interested in.  We did a little bag swap.  I made up this little bag and sent it to my partner.  Of course I had to include one of Deonn’s from “Quiltscapes” little bird pincushions…

Here’s the link to her blog:  BTW, the birdie pincushion is in her “Snippets” patterns!

Thanks Deonn!!!

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…

July 16, 2013

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…

This is what I’m working on for my partner in the FLiRTS swap on flickr… My secret partner picked 5 items that she would like. I pick from those 5 items which to make for her/him. It’s taking shape at last! But what will it become? Time will tell!

Wow! Look at what I got for Christmas!

Christmas came early this year! Yesterday, following our last Quilt Guild meeting/Christmas party, I received this gorgeous pincushion from my friend Denise! Isn’t it gorgeous?! And she made all the pins too! (As if the pincushion wasn’t enough!) I could gaze at this all night. I’ll just set it here by the computer for awhile… Thanks bunches Denise!!!

I need 41 pincushions to give my quilt guild ladies next month for our Christmas party… I have 35 done and need 7 more. I made up 3 of this pattern to use as pinnies, which still need a little embroidery! I’ll be glad when I’m done!!!

Frankenmouse and Mousecula…

These have got to be my favorite patterns ever!!! They were designed by a talented gal who works at Village Dry Goods in Brigham City, Utah, my favorite quilt shop ever!!! If you want the patterns, leave me a comment, and I’ll get you the contact info for the store! (Who I am not affiliated with at all, except for being their biggest fan.) LOL!

I already mentioned in the previous post that I’ve made Frankenmouse before, in case he looks familiar!  Mousecula is new to me this time, and I have to laugh because he looks like he’s doing a “song and dance” number!  “Hello my baby… Hello my darlin’… Hello my Ragtime doll…”  Can’t you just hear it?!  LOL!  And the funny thing is that my friend Karen thought the same thing!!!  Sick, errrr… great minds think alike!

What I’ve been working on…

These are the little projects that I’ve been working on the last few days…  They involve a little handwork, so they’ve been good to take with me to work on at the park!  I’m doing a series of 3 little mouse pincushions (I’ve made Frankenmouse before, just in case he looks familiar, but I keep giving him away!), Frakenmouse, Mousecula, and Witch Hazel!  (She’s not done yet!)  My friend Denise, picked up the pattern at Village Dry Goods.  (I already bought them when they came out last year and the year before!)  Karen, Denise and I are getting together and working on them…  They are too darn cute!

In the Roy Quilt Guild, Sue was teaching us to make 3 jack-o-lanterns stacked on top of each other.  They were a little big for the space I have left for Halloween decorations, so I made a smaller pattern for myself.  Denise and Leslie wanted to do the smaller size too, so the three of us did my little pattern!  Denise and Leslie were both doing things differently, so I stole, ummm…, borrowed the ideas I liked best from all three of them.  The pumpkins are the end result!  Thanks ladies!!!  I’ll add them to my Halloween mini quilt display on the clothesline…

I’m the President this year for the Roy Quilt Guild… I decided to make pinnies for all the members for Christmas. I’m using spare bitty blocks that I made, in addition to a couple of spare Dear Jane blocks! (If you’ve ever done a Dear Jane, you’ll recognize them immediately! LOL!) I have to make 35 of these (give or take a few…)! Yay for finishes of any sort!
