"sister" swap goodies
qreative quilts for the "it's a sister swap" thing. apparently she has been reading my blog in order to choose these beautiful items so perfect for me. first, a kaffe fassett pillow that goes in my sewing chair, some nice civil war fabrics, an adorable journal with angel cover and the delish beach bag that is nearly all paper pieced. this gal is a wizard at paper piecing, i tell ya! the two photos show back and front and i cannot decide which is better. course, having my name on it makes it ultra personal and absolutely perfect for just about anything, almost too nice for the beach, know what i mean? it has a large zipper pocket on one side and 2 open pockets on the other when you peek inside. check out her blog for other beautiful items she has made....thank you, kathy, for such wonderful surprises! **** i mailed my package yesterday so once it's revealed, i'll post photos of what i sent, which i hope will be equally well received. i don't do many swaps now because of prohibitive postage rates, but this is one i'd be happy to do again. thank you, michele, for being such a super hostess! *** well reality bites and my 3-day birthday weekend has come to an end. now i get to work for 3 days while others relax, but no matter, i had a terrific "weekend" and it won't always be this way. i'm grateful to have a job with so many positive aspects. just hoping i'll be able to find another when i move. **** and last, it's 57 days to retreat...coming fast now and gonna be busy until departure getting stuff ready to take. ooohh lancaster at harvest time...how great is that!
