Today I am drawing the winner for the "My baby Has Arrived" competition. The winner will receive a fat 1/4. First off I would like to thank everyone who participated. It hasn't been an easy task deciding a winner. So many good names. Drum roll please...........the winner of the competition is Gail. Gail suggested the name "Esmerelda" because she felt it's a magical name and the quilting frame will help me make some very magic items in the future. Well Gail, it truly is a magical name and I will need all the help I can get to create magic items!!! I have decided to have a runner-up because I was torn between 2 names. The runner-up is Lucky. Lucky suggested "Rosy" because I love flowers. I have decided to send Lucky 6, 4" charm squares. Congratulations Gail and Lucky. I do hope you enjoy your fabric.
Today is the day us swap partners get to open our pressie from each other and look at what I got from my Paper Bag Swap Partner Vicki. Isn't it divine. I love it. The more you look at the bag the more you see on it. Vicki has put a lot of work into it and I feel very lucky. Thank you so much Vicki.
This bag below is the bag I made from the contents from the purple paper bag I received from Vicki. I posted a picture back a bit on my blog of that purple bag!! So now you can see not only some of what was in the bag but what I did with it. My swap partner for this swap was Trish and I do hope she likes her gift.
When it came to doing the lining I didn't have a big enough piece of fabric left and I really wanted to use what Vicki had sent so I joined up the bits of fabric left and I was able to get a piece big enough to cut the lining from. Then to cover the seams I used a piece of material/ribbon (not sure what you call it) that Vicki had sent. I was pleased with the way it looks inside. Kind of funky I guess. The only things I added from my stash to the stash Vicki sent was a button for the loop to go over and a few beads to go with some Vicki sent. This has been a great swap. Thank you Vicki and Trish.
I have a lovely husband and 2 beautiful children.I live on a pastoral property running sheep and cattle. Due to where I live I do not have a quilting shop just down the road so when I do go away I take the opportunity to buy what I need for a project I have in mind and a little extra for that project I haven't yet thought about!
