I am participating in scissor keeper swap organized by Cookies and Cream, but I am very delinquent and tardy in getting items made for my swap partner. I was totally awestruck and humbled when I received a wonderful package from Kerry in the mail.
A magazine, a lovely card, some embroidery thread, and look at the cutest scissor keep and pincushion…
Plus she sent a large package of vehicle fabric for my grandson’s quilt. Some I already had, but there are some really fabulous new ones.
He is going to LOVE those cats on motorcycles!
And then I got a totally unexpected package from Melody with a couple more fabrics, and a darling little scissor fob.
Helicopters and seaplanes! I don’t have any of those. With all the fabric goodness I’ve received from so many blog friends I’m going to have to add another row of vehicles to the quilt design!
Here’s a close-up of the scissor fob. So cute.
Thank-you both so much Kerry and Melody.
I didn’t get my FNSI post up on Saturday. Raucous grandkids were visiting and it was just busy all day long. I did accomplish a bit for the sew-in though.
This bag, which I made for DD # 1, whose birthday was last week. It is the same pattern as a bag I made for the Goodie Swap, but I made a couple of changes: a long over the shoulder strap instead of a short wrist strap, and I put a little pocket inside. Of course I made mistakes in both my design changes and had to undo my sewing twice to fix things…..
And a little ornament to include in the table runner swap which is going in the mail tomorrow. I had enough of sewing for the evening so moved on to beads.
The temperature is down below –30. Brr….. I must be off to bed.
