I took today off as a mental health day and I am so glad I did! It was a great, productive day. I dropped my daughter off at school, went grocery shopping, got a chai latte, got gas, and went to the post office. I made it home a little after 9am. I headed straight for my sewing room. Then in the mail came my package from my swap partner from the 4S (Simple and Sweet Scrappy Swap) on Flickr! Mumziepooh, also known as Debbie, sent me some amazing goodies. Check out this chicken pin cushion. I named her Chicken Little. I have a thing for chickens and the colors of this one are perfect for my sewing room!
She included 10 fat quarters including some Scrumptious ones by Bonnie and Camille, a Chantilly charm pack, and an April Showers mini charm pack!!!! WOO HOO!!!
My picture is not great, but she has the cutest little tag with owls on it and says "Mumziepooh Makes." Isn't the bag amazing? The pennant banner is so dainty!
There were also pins, embroidery scissors and needles, washi tape, a precious zipper, and Reese's eggs. Wow did she ever spoil me!!!! A day off from work and a package like this certainly made my day!!!!
I whipped up this book cover for one of my 5th graders and made a tutorial explaining how to make them. http://tanyaquiltsinco.blogspot.com/2014/03/book-cover-tutorial.html
I only have 17 more to make by May!!!
I made these two houses for the quilt along I am doing with Kim over at http://kimsbigquiltingadventure.blogspot.com/
They have all been made from my stash.
I also worked on my blocks for the quilt along over at Joined at the Hip. I am behind, but should get caught up with some more work tonight. These blocks are only 6 inches, so the pieces are small, but very stash friendly!
I finished up this Easter bag for my nephew last night...
I need to get some more hand work together and I will be all set for more productivity this week! Remember quilting is my therapy and this was just how I needed to rejuvenate! We start testing tomorrow and I will need to quilt at night for sure with a mommy beverage.
