Life has had me Missing In Action in blog land recently. With my 9-year old starting at a new school and an unexpected move to a new house, my blog has definitely been silent lately. Let's recap, starting with some recent craftiness:

This is the amazing Doll Quilt Swap 9 quilt that I received! Isn't it amazing?! It now has pride of place in my new sewing room. I absolutely adore the birds, it's just perfect :)

Next, we have the DQS9 quilt and goodies (camera strapcover & scrappy mug rug) that I made. They went all the way to the East Coast and I am pleased to report that my partner loved her package of goodies. Yay!

This is definitely one of the BEST swap packages that I have ever received. This was for the Urban Home Goods Swap on Flickr and when she posted pics of it (before I knew it was for me) I loved it and knew that it had to be for me! When I opened up the box I was so excited. It had been a rough week for me and this package eally put a smile on my face and brightened my day. The pillow is amazing and made with some of my fave Heather Bailey. I absolutely adore the embroidered gnome and pieced fabric wall hanging, it is also now adorning my sewing room wall. It's so funny that she made one of those little baskets for me because I had just made two for myself before I received hers. Can you tell that i love it?!
These little lovelies were my submission for the UHG Swap. This was a big deal for me as it was my first time making a pillow cover, making a dresden plate, making hexies, using the aqua/red combo and trying my hand at applique! I have to say that I was very pleased with the results and my partner was too!
Please welcome Henrietta! This gorgeous pincushion was what I recieved in the Pincushion Pass Swap on Flickr. I absolutely adore her and cannot bear the thought of piercing her with pins (although that's what she's for!) so for now she decorates my sewing table.
And last but certainly not least is a peek of the pincushion that I made for the swap. It is made of wool felt and hand sewn/embroidered. I did not use a pattern, just made it on the fly and I love how it came together. I don't have much experience with embroidery stitches and techniques so it was a really fun project.

I love comments - that way I know I'm not all alone!
