Like I said, there are lots of things to show you today, but I'll be quick about it. First of all, let me introduce two new ladies: # 74 (Randi from Canada) and #76 (Barbara from the US) - (#75 is still a mystery to be revealed next week).
Randi wasn't sure if she wanted a ribbon in her hair, or a tape measure, so I surprised her. Note that her "real" photo doesn't have glasses, but she sent me another one that did, so that's how come I knew the frames were reddish.
Next, we have Barbara from the US. Barbara is a professional adult tea party coordinator who loves her craft!! She wanted herself with all the proper attire for a great tea party. Check out that cool feather in her hair with ribbon and button. Can't have a better fascinator than that, I'd say! lol
Next, let me show you the quilts I made for the Mini QT swap for my partner. The theme was black and white plus one other color which my partner decided. Only one quilt is required, but I got carried away. The first one I named, "Girly DNA" and was 10x14 inches. Note how I free motioned my name on the bottom:
And then I also made her this one which I called, "Flowers". Duh! lol That one was 9x12 inches. She told me her sewing studio had pink walls which is why she decided on that color.
I'm expected her package maybe even today, so next week I will show you what she sent to me.
Then, naturally we have the envelopes I sent my girlies this week:
And I finished off the month reading a bunch of fun mysteries plus one fun contemporary:
THE DRESS SHOP OF DREAMS by Menna VanPraag
DEADLY LIES (debut) - really good by Chris Patchell
MURDER ONE by Robert Dugoni
CANE & ABE by James Grippano
So, there you have it….short and sweet!! Now to plan my next mini quilt for the theme: Folk Art. I already think I know what I'm going to do. Stay tuned!!
