I’m still alive

I’ve been a delinquent blogger lately.  I’ve been really busy doing something and not much sewing has been done.  I did make some inspiration blocks for Victoria’s 15 Minutes of Play.  I have a dozen more of these to finish.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them next.

I got excited about Madame Samm’s mug rug contest one day and whipped up this one.  It was supposed to represent me… I got one vote for third place.  Gotta start small….

Here is a sneak peak of the block I made today for Robyn in the Block Swap Adventure.

And I took a class last week with my friend Dahn in working with metal for fabric pieces.  Dahn said she’d like to see a picture of herself on my blog, so here she is teaching away.

And here is my masterpiece from the class.  I have a great idea for using it on a journal cover – when I get time.

I’ve received some goodies in the mail as well.  Toni sent me a hexie in the Inchy Hexie Swap in December, but didn’t like her work so sent me this one, received today.  I liked the first one but I LOVE this one.

My DD sent me another installment of the vintage hexies…

What else have I received??? These great Valentines mugrugs from Karen.

And Allie, my wayward goat from the Sisterhood of the Travelling Goat has come home to roost and she brought this fabulous pillow cover with her!  Thanks to Fiona, Maria and Laura.

I’m leaving on Tuesday, flying to St. John’s Newfoundland to drive back to the Yukon with DD # 3.  A long trip – 8000 + kilometres and it is winter out there.  We’ll take it slow, stop and sleep every night and hopefully have a great time.  I’ll check into blogland if I can.  If not see you all in a couple of weeks.

  7. I like your 15 minute of play blocks. They remind me of little flags that would be on sail boats.

    Have a safe trip!
