This week, April 30th to May 6th, I…

Finally got some sewing done!  I am mostly catching up on swaps right now.  I feel like – no, I AM -  behind in a few of them. 

Firstly, I made and sent the April Inchie hexies to Deb in Australia…

Next I added a border to the Mystery Round Robin block I had to work on for April .  I can’t show the whole block, but here’s a sneak peek at the fabrics I used…

Then I made this block for Beebee who is the May recipient in Victoria's New Bee swap over at 15 Minutes Play.  I think this is the first time I’ve ever made a 15 inch block!

I still have quite a few swap items to catch up on, so there will hopefully be more to show next week…

I am taking a mukluk making class here in my town.  The first class was on Wednesday evening.  Here are a couple of the ladies working on their mukluks.  I don’t have a photo of me working on mine…. Next week maybe.  The class is on Wednesday evenings, but there is sewing on Thursdays as well, so I may get these done quickly.

I also packaged and mailed three sets of 100 two inch charms and four sets of 50 two inch gift charms for Mary’s Postage Stamp Swap this week.  I think the mailing part of things takes longer than the sewing Smile 

Although it has looked like this a good deal of the past week…

I know I still owe you a post about all the goodies I’ve received in the mail lately…. It is coming soon…

Happy Spring!
