Can You Guess What It Is??

Our oldest ordered herself this most fabulous gizmo plus the extended warranty that one needs for these electronic things, leaving her with not much left for a case.....

Enter the Mummy and her sewing machine ....................


So - what do you think - might there be a market for these!!?? I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - oh and she is too!

2 down - 5 to go

Here's a quick peek at my Christmas blocks for the swap being sponsored by ModernJax.

We signed up to make 6 blocks (+ one for charity if you wanted to). 2 will go to each of your three team mates. In return (fingers crossed) you will receive 2 blocks from each of your 3 team mates..... I'm really looking forward to seeing what I receive and think i'm going to make a little wall hanging with my 6... might add a couple of my own ... depending on the spark of the moment!
I've had a quick look at a couple of my swap partners sites and OMGoodness - VERY CUTE is all I have to say! Sophia, Kristen and Nicole - can't wait to receive your blocks.

Sneak Peak

So here it is - my DQS7 project completed for my partner. I just have to make a label, wrap it up (along with a few little goodies) and off into the post it goes!!! And, shockingly, well before the deadline of September 15th!!! Yay me!

I really hope she likes it. I'm a little nervous. I love it - I'm not sure the photo does it justice. The prints are so bright against the brown. Well fingers crossed.

I've never done something like this before, but have to admit to having really enjoyed it. It took awhile for the idea to come to me but once it did, the project kind of came together itself. To view some of the fantastic quilts made by others go visit the Flickr group set up for DQS7. It truly amazing the talent that is out there. VERY inspiring.

I can't believe it, school starts tomorrow for the 2 youngest. Oldest has already been in class for a week. Where did the summer go? Off to do a couple things with the kidlets. See you soon.
