Scrappy Happy Mail

Last week I received my package for the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap. My fantastic package was from Alison of Peachy Keen Quilts. I was blown away by my scrappy pouch!

The back is so cute too!

And I'm in love with the lining fabric.

And then I got some amazing scraps too. She was so thoughtful and picked a lot of reds and purples which I had mentioned I was lacking. And how cute is that Swim Party scrap!?

Thank you so much Alison! I love every bit of it!

I hope they'll be opening another round in the New Year. Keep your eyes on it if you want to join us!

A little Christmas...

I ran into a little Christmas dilemma this year. You see, last year I only had one child! These were our stockings.
(i took this photo because a certain Elf was hanging out on the mantle).

This year I have two kids. So I went back to Pottery Barn to see if I could order another stocking for Evan. No deal. They discontinued them!! ack. Well, being crafty I figured it was time to make my own.

I used this pattern and I highly recommend it. It was super easy.

The fabrics are from the Blitzen line by Basic Grey for Moda which I picked up at my LQS.

And I hand embroidered the cuffs by transferring our names printed from the computer.

I'm so happy with how they turned out. Take that Pottery Barn! haha!

Oh, and if you are still with me and have a moment, I would love if you could vote for my do.Good Stitches group. Rachel, the creator of do. Good Stitches has gathered together one finished quilt from each bee circle and the one with most votes will win.   This sailboat quilt is the one we chose to submit, and in my opinion, it is the best! :)  If you have a second, head here and throw us a vote? Thanks!

Other things going on

I realized that I've only been posting about my finished projects. There have been lots of other things going on in the sewing room.

I won an awesome giveaway with lots of goodies from Jan DiCintio aka Daisy Janie.

I love her fabrics so I was particularly excited about this generous scrap pack.

 I also received some fantastic blocks from my 4x5 Modern Bee members. We were the paper piecing group and these girls outdid themselves. (the first one is my block)

I also must be a glutton for punishment because I can't stop signing up for things! I just signed up for the Make it Modern Bee. And I did my inspiration mosaic for the Doll Quilt Swap 13.

I finished my package to send out for Scrappy Bits Swap and I'm excitedly checking my mail to see what I get!

And this past weekend I got to spend time with friends from PMQG sewing. You can see my Christmas Stockings that I'm work on here. Whew! I didn't realize I had so much sewing going on! Anyone else as addicted to getting fun fabric mail as I apparently am?!a1a`
