So much to share, I don't know where to start. Perhaps I should show you what I did today. Over at the Bitty Block Committee we are having a side swap of "Bitter Bitties". My theme was, "you are the needle in my foot":
And naturally I made 12 of them:
Then, I made a few pouches using 2 1/2 inch Kaffe squares:
That one was basically the same on both sides, but the next one has two different sides....again, using the Kaffe squares:
Aren't those zipper pulls just the BEST? I got those from the "Zipit" lady on Etsy! She has fantastic prices on zippers too.......(I wish I had known about her before I invested probably $30 at Joanns on zippers.) I did buy some from her though....couldn't pass up the price!! And not only that, she only lives probably an hour from me. (Gotta support your neighborhood people, you know!!!)
Then, round 9 is done for the Little Quilt, sew, vote swap group. This is the one I made:
(Did you put your sunglasses on?) lol It is a bit bright! And this is the one that was my #1 pick that I got from Charlene - "waggonwest".
You wouldn't think that was my style, would you? I love it though! It looks very antique-like......not that I'm into antiques.....oh who knows why it appealed to me? Maybe the heart with the buttons? Probably! Whatever!!!
Then, besides making Lady #38 and having her receive it.........(and you'll see her next time), I did a side swap with Synnove from Norway. I noticed on some swap that she added beads to her pouch zippers for a bit of whimsy. I looked all over for appropriate lightweight beads, but found nothing so asked her if she'd like to do a swap so she could get some for me. Lookie what came:
Holey moley, huh? I'm thinking I'm really going to have to make a few pouches to use all of those beads! E-gads! She went a bit NUTS!!
So, that's it for today. More soon! I have more to show...............until next time..........
