Exciting Stuff

Before I forget, I need to post the mug rug
I received from my swap partner, Lissy.
The swap was hosted by Jenna at

Isn't it pretty?  And she sent me a lovely postcard from where she lives too.
I was pretty lucky!

I participated in my first Friday Night Sew-In last night.
(as mentioned in the post below)
This is hosted monthly by Heidi.
I highly recommend doing this.  It was fun just knowing
there were other quilters, crafters and creators out there
doing their own thing.

There's a groups of us ladies at work that joined Weight Watchers.
It's going GREAT!
But we all needed something to carry all the information in.
Things like our points calculators, weekly pamphlets, etc.
So I utilized my Friday Night Sew-In to make the last of the
bags and pouches to finish our group.
(Yeah...they are lucky to have me!)

Here's the pouch & bag I made
for the last of my group.

I also had a bridal shower today for my cousin.  I wanted to put
something handmade in the gift, so I made her these appliqued tea towels.
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
I think she liked them.  :o)

Now...if any of you are interested in participating in a fun swap,
head on over here. It looks to be a good one!
You'll have two partners to send to.  (and 2 will send to you) Each will receive a mug rug 
along with another homemade goodie.
The fun is that you have no idea who will be sending to you!
It won't be the same one's you're assigned to gift.
I love the mysteriousness of it all.
Sign up end August 26th.

Later, Gater!

Last year my SIL and her friend joined Weight Watchers, and asked for bags to hold their notepads/pencils/booklets. I bought veggie fabric and made them each a zipper bag ... then my SIL quit going about a month later, lol. I guess she's using the zipper bag for something else now! ;)

It's nice to have you join the FNSI fun - I've been doing it for a few months now and have a nice collection of gifts ready now - hopefully I won't be frantically sewing @ midnight on Christmas Eve this year, lol!
