I came home from work today to awesome mail! I am participating in the Friendship Bag Swap Round 3 on Flickr. My amazingly quick partner, Jan Roberts, had sent me this adorable, bright house (I love house blocks) bag stuffed with amazing goodies. The bags don't even need to be mailed until March 15th. Thank goodness because I am in the process of making mine for my partner!
This precious needle book made from colorful selvages. I had not hopped on the selvage bandwagon until today. Seeing this made me certainly reconsider that selvages are trash...
The needle book is big enough to hold a spool of hand quilting thread. I love the scissor fabric! She also used it to line the bag.
This small bag could be attached to a key chain or tote bag and looks like the perfect size for a lipstick. This pretty little decorative pin was inside. Now, I am certainly inspired to get working on the projects I need to make for my partner. Thank you Jan!!!
I set some lofty goals for February ALYOF, maybe more like unrealistic considering it is a short month and really busy at work!
Goal #1 get caught up on my 10 Goodnight Irene Blocks---done
Goal #2 make my Triple-Zip Pouch for my partner---done and she loved it!
Goal #3 piece, hand quilt, and finish my elephant baby quilt- done and gorgeous!
Goal #4 make the house blocks for the quilt along with sbigquiltingadventure.blogspot.com/ done
Goal #5 finish my perpetual calendar---not done, but working on it!
I did not meet Goal #5, but I did make 4 Survival Bag tote bags for my sister's family (her hubby had brain surgery on Wednesday and is already out of the hospital today!) and finished up my Country Threads 2013 BOM Sampler. I think I need to tone down my March goals!!!
It is supposed to be a rainy weekend here in western Colorado, so I will be quilting and putting the crock pot to good use.
