I had a swap in a nail polish group. Yes—-I LOVE nail polish! Check out my IG account—–PLENTY on there! LOL
We do a swap every now and then. Roughly $25 worth of goodies. I try to add something homemade if at all possible.
This has 3 box pleated pockets for a base coat, top coat, and color, as well as tiny pockets on the side for orange sticks and emery boards.
They slide in nice and deep, and everything has 2 layers of cotton batting for protection.
A simple tie to hold it together and you’re ready to go! I hope to have a pattern for it soon.
Nothing as sweet as new baby girl! And of course she needed a quilt!!
It is for my Mother In Law’s boss. She liked pinks and yellows, so I went with it!
The pattern is EASY!! A disappearing 9 patch.
Make a 9 patch and chop it into 4 parts. Sew back together, and there ya go!
I had a few extra blocks, so I tossed them on the back.
Paisley quilting, and of course, my butterfly!
Mom and new baby are doing well, and love the quilt.
I signed up to join a mugrug swap through Quilting Gallery.com It was advertized as “some embroidery required”. When I got around to working on them, I saw that the instructions called for hand applique as well!! AKK! That is a LOT of handwork!! Later, I discovered that machine applique was allowed…oh well! By that time I had half of one already finished. Maybe next time I’ll reread ALL directions before starting, huh! Ultimately, I even hand sewed the binding! I NEVER do that! We had to follow a pattern, but some modifications were allowed.
The geese were added to mine because they evacuate here for the winter.
(yes, I know it is migrate. I like evacuate better!)
This was supposed to only have 2 hills. I ran out of green. oops!
These certainly aren’t perfect, but I’m pleased with my first embroidery.
I hope my partner likes it too!
I went to mail these to Australia this AM and was told it was going to cost $45. WHAT???!!! It was too heavy to go First Class. Sorry, but that 6ounce piece of fudge cam out and is now MY dessert!!! LOL
Mom ordered a runner for her friend! Look how stinking cute this is! Another batch of crappy cell pics, but it is the best I could do. It is already in Mom’s hands.
The striped binding is simply PERFECT!
I hope Mrs Joy likes this!
I managed to get a Christmas project done. This one was almost a year overdue. I am happy that I finally managed to get it where it belongs. These are cruddy Cell pictures. I am sorry!! I needed it shipped before I lost it!!!
My favorite detail is the jingle bells!!!! I LOVE it!
