I am Famous!!!

I was interviewed awhile ago by Jenna from Swap Dex. I am featured today!!!! I feel so famous and so glamorous! Go check it out. The weird thing is I couldn't remember what I had said until I read it again. How fun!

You can read my interview here!

More Projects!!

I received a wonderful package from Ann from Denmark from my Mini Scrap Swap. Here is what she sent me:

What an awesome package, huh?

I made some bloomer pants for a friend's baby that is due next month. I still have a shirt to make with it!

I completed some more bibs and got all of the buttons put on them for 2 friends of mine who have babies. I am almost done with a ton of burp cloths too! YAY!

I also made some progress yesterday on my Amy Butler Bag. I have one bag completely cut out and another in the wings waiting to be cut!! I am hoping to get more completed today!

Projects.... I really do sew!!


My scraps on their way to Denmark!!! It was so much fun to clean out my stash. Can't wait to see what I get in return!!!

An apron I owed my dear friend Aunt Pitty Pat! Hope she loves it!

I was able to use my labels I received from my husband for Christmas on two of my projects!

My apron I received from the Amy Butler Apron Swap! It's cute, isn't it? I love it!

The apron I made for my partner in the Amy Butler Apron Swap!

The whole apron! I love how the apron turned out and I hope my partner does too!
I also made 16 hearts for a heart swap, but I forgot to take a picture before I mailed them. I am getting 16 hearts back, so I will take a photo then!

Now on to my Amy Butler Weekender Bags full time now!

Here is another mini swap to pass the time as my We The People Four group completes their Amy Butler bags!!!

Partners Swapped: Tuesday, February 17

If you would like to sign up, use this form: We The People FQ Mini Swap

Join the fun! I couldn't find a cool picture of my fat quarters, so I will try to work on it so we have a button! It feels weird to not have a photo included with this!!

A Giveaway, A Swap, A Retreat Idea and One More Day!

1. It looks like Fat Quarters won out for a mini swap theme! I will post sign ups on here on Tuesday (my next day off!!!!)

2. I have one more day of training to complete for my new job and then I can slowly come back to the land of sewing and crafting. My blog has been so sad without photos of projects I have been completing! I hope to get some new photos up by Tuesday evening. I have at least 2 aprons to post!!

3. My dear, sweet friend Frankenpug is hosting a giveaway!! She has delightful little pugs and she is such a WONDERFUL friend..........SO - get on over to her blog and join in her giveaway. Let's get her a ton of entries!! Don't make me come to your house and rough you up (wink!).

4. Get those scraps in the mail - they are due to be mailed by tomorrow!!!!

5. I am kicking around the idea of renting a cabin for a weekend and hosting a little fun weekend to sew. I am thinking about some place beautiful (like CO!). I know this would exclude many people, but if I decide to rent one say in like June - would anyone else be mildly interested??? Just kicking around some thoughts! Leave a comment if anyone is interested! How fun to finally meet some of you face to face!!

Swap Annoucements (New Swap Included!!)

WTP mini swappers: Deadline to mail out scraps to your partner is Monday, February 9th. Don't forget to email me and notify me when you have sent and received! I will be following up soon with those of you I have not heard anything from!!!

We the People 4 - Amy Butler Bag participants: I have pushed the deadline back by one week to help allow some more time to complete the bag! Bags are now due to be mailed no later than SATURDAY, MARCH 7th. That gives you one month to complete the bag!!! Make sure you remember to use delivery confirmation when mailing the bag so I can track the bag if need be!!

Mini Swap question: I have had a couple emails come in asking if we could do one more mini swap while waiting for the WTP 4 to wrap up. I am all for hosting another mini swap. I will put a poll to the right and feel free to vote. I will do this for just a day or two to see if there is interest!!

Florida Photos

These are the only photos that will load!! We had some great times in Florida and I am almost done with my training!! Yay!

February 1, 2009

Hello from Florida!

Look what came in the mail to me!!! This lovely apron was made by Betty for the Sassy/Flirty Apron Swap. I received a call from home while I am here in Florida to tell me I had received a package and now I CANNOT wait to get home!! Head over to Betty's blog and check out how cute her blog is!

I have had a blast in Florida so far. I started training today and I am learning so much already. I have been around on some of the islands and I went digging for seashells with my husband. Digging for seashells was my favorite thing!!! I come home late Wednesday evening and I start another 4 days of training once being home. THEN - I can focus on some major sewing projects (2 AB weekender bags!!!). I am almost done with a Amy Butler Apron that is due for a swap and my scraps will go out next weekend too!

Thanks for being patient as there has not been as many photos of projects lately. Once I get this job under my belt a bit more I will be able to work sewing back in to a time slot!!

I will be posting some FL photos later this week too. Happy sewing and have a happy week!
