Back from the beach...
and it was GREAT, so relaxing and lovely - kind of makes me sad to jump back into the laundry/what's-for-dinner game but here I am ;-) What I'm REALLY excited about is the start of the Pretty Little Pouch round 3 Swap - here's my mosaic, clearly I like patchwork and color! I added the green and gray quilt at the bottom because I just love that color combination right now. Making a 241 bag in that colorway is near the top of my somewhat lengthy list of sewing to-do's! Btu I really want it to carry THIS fall (which starts on FRIDAY! Side note - where has the year gone?!) so it's going to stay up there at the top. I also need to get some pillow fronts made for our sewing day at Whipstitch on Saturday (more on that tomorrow) and my blocks done for the 3x6 Bee. I've picked my block design I just need to get sewing!
And THIS is the package I received in the For The Love Of Solids Swap from SewCraftyJess - I seriously could not LOVE it anymore if I tried! She totally nailed it - from the colors to the design, everything! Best swap I have ever participated in hands-down! Yay! I love the gray binding she added and the little pouch is adorable.
Look at the gorgeous quilting, which you can see so clearly on the back - lovely! And it's like she had ESP with the Terrain charm pack, as I had just been drooling over that collection last week - perfect choices for me and I LOVE them all! Thanks again to my partner for being such a fantastic swapper! Go check out her fantastic blog if you have a minute - you'll enjoy it.
No word yet from my partner about her package - hope she received it ok (also going to check my delivery confirmation because, you know, the USPS isn't perfect ;-).
I'll be posting some info tomorrow for our sewing day at Whipstitch this Saturday (8AM till Noon) and will be focused on pillow techniques. I'm am SO looking forward to it after missing last month!
