Calling all EB sewing ladies

I stumbled back into my blog after an extremely long hiatus to find the long forgotten sewing blog of my fellow EB buddies.

Where are you all?   Are you still sewing/quilting/blogging?

I would love an update on everyone.

Valentines Day Swap Partners!

Partners have been chosen out of the hat!

And the results are in:

Tigerfilly and Suz

Helen and Kys

Heids and Kim

Cass and Karen

Ingrid and Andrea

Natalie and Marie

IngridK and Adds

Belinda and Kylie

Just to re-cap, the rules of the swap are that the swap parcel would include

1. a small handmade item that takes less than 3 hours to complete and has a valentine theme. It could be anything: a sock creature, soft toy, simple stitchery, mini-quilt, pin-cushion, bag, purse, knitted something - anything that you would enjoy making and sharing!

2. something chocolatey or sweet-like!

3. and some craft supplies from your own stash - e.g. buttons, ribbon, fabric scraps, lace, wool, string, beads - anything like that but not worth more than $6 in value.

The parcels are to be sent ON February 14th

And most importantly HAVE FUN and share the LOVE! hehe


I also think that we should pop into the swap thread on the Stitchy and Patchy Show once a week just to let everyone know how we are going. (I have seen this on a few forums now and have thought that it was a good idea)

Valentines Day Swap

All those interested in the Valentines Swap can sign up here (just leave a comment) and if I go early Heidi will take over! (who really knows how long I have)

This will be a DIRECT swap - meaning you send to the same person as you are receiving from - From memory we have not done one of these yet - so it should be fun!

3. and some craft supplies from your own stash - e.g. buttons, ribbon, fabric scraps, lace, wool, string, beads - anything like that but not worth more $6 in value. (it is ok to purchase something small if you don't already have something in your stash or you are a beginner and you stash is small)

Mailing date for your little parcel is the 14th of February

Sign ups will close on SUNDAY 20th @ 8pm

Many Thanks to Lucy (from Lucy Locket Recycled Her Pocket) for the idea. I saw it on her blog but did not get a comment in early enough to participate in her little (60 people strong) swap!

Cheers and Hugs and Kisses for Happy Crafting

My goodies from Yakkers

Here's my lovely parcel of gifts from Jacqui. Such lovely and useful things!

I especially love the time taken with these felt decorations - don't they look lovely on our tree?
