Do you ever have days
where you feel like the luckiest person in the world?
Well, that pretty much sums up how I've been
feeling this week.
And just to give you fair warning,
this is a long post.
You may remember the post I did
on the items I made for the Sewing Room Swap.
I was lucky enough to get this AWESOME
(which is all the rage on Flickr at the moment),
made with fabric by Bonnie & Camille, from Sue.
You can view her Flickr photos HERE.
Do you not just love this fabric tape for the handles??
Look at all the amazing goodies that came with it!
That mini lint roller has gotten lots of use already.
She must have stalked me quite well
and knew that my girls Sadie and Oreo hang out in my
sewing room with me.
The straight pins have also been put to good use.
They are GREAT for marking your rows and/or blocks
so you can keep them in order.
She made those too!
I felt very spoiled after I got this!
Just when I thought it couldn't get better,
I got this amazing Artist Tote in the mail from Karen.
You can see her Flickr photo stream HERE.
This was from the Sew Sew Modern 3 Swap.
Look at all that Heather Ross goodness!!
And let me tell you,
this bag is HUGE!
I'm going on a bus trip soon for a quilt shop hop,
and this bad boy is coming with me.
We are going to do some serious damage!
Well....I guess we'll do serious damage
until my debit card gets declined.
And check out this sweet back side
I love the bag...a LOT.
I almost feel guilty to tell you what my favorite part of this package was.
(Seriously...I'm not taking away from this kick a__ bag,
because Karen did an awesome job and I LOVE it!)
I do have Scottish blood runnin' thru me vains.
So loving Gerard Butler, well,
that just seems like the natural thing to do.
And if you've been with me a while,
you KNOW I have the hots for him.
Did you see the rest of the goodies she sent me?
I can't WAIT to hang that fall bunting up this weekend!
I'll be dipped.
She also sent me the CUTEST cards.
I forgot to add them to the photo!
And, um, Karen....
I have a little question for you.
As I was setting everything out to do my 'brag' photo,
I started to notice a trend.
This little Scottish lass may detect a bit of bondage taking place.
But in all seriousness,
Sue & Karen spoiled me rotten!!
Thank you both so much!
And what did I send for the SSM3 swap?
A Super Tote and a couple pouches.
The Super Tote pattern, by Noodlehead, can be found HERE.
I made the owl using my Sizzix die.
You can find the die HERE.
Also, tonight is Friday Night Sew In!
Make sure to go HERE
and sign up!
Sending you all lots of love
and Gerard Butler hugs!!!!
