It's time

Time to show you what you haven't seen yet (unless you peeked and visited my flickr stream).  All my swap partners got their stuff....although I'm still waiting for mine and it's so fun going to the mailbox everyday in anticipation.  First, I sent two mini's to "bahamadawn" (Kimber).  I made her Art Quilt #3, but I wasn't real nuts about it (probably the pastel colors) and I know that she likes wild things too, so I made her a bonus of an appliqued little one to boot:

Art Mini #3

"Here comes Summer"

(Actually, I made 5 of that one because I wanted one, I sent my sister one, and I blessed two good friends with them too. They were too summery not to have one too.) LOL Besides, it's nice to smile at a little whimsey once and awhile!

Then, I sent off my place mat for the current place mat swap to Terrie. I wasn't real sure that she'd like it because although she loves modern and has tons of modern stuff in her "favorites" she tends to sew more traditional. I got the idea in the middle of the night one night and treated it as a revelation, and after that, I just HAD to make it. Good thing too because yesterday in Explore, it was #1 all day. Think I'm not proud? E-gads, I was on the moon! Now, I need a few more revelations!!!

PQS3 to Terrie

So, that's it folks. Now, I ned to get back to work so I have something to show you next time. I'm already working on #5 Mini Art quilt....and maybe #6 tomorrow, so I'll be back! Enjoy and happy sewing.............
