yup....I'm still here

I can hardly believe it's the middle of October! I'm not really sure what happened to September....I blinked and the month was over. It's been a bit busy settling in with the little guy. The girls are learning to deal with least they've stopped hissing and growling everytime they pass by him. Not that it matters to him...... .he's going to play with them whether they like it or

I have been busy sewing up swap committments. I did a postcard swap at MQR. Vicki is the swap host and the theme was Gone with the Wind. It was fun receiving the cards and seeing how differently the theme was interpreted. This was the one I made and the ones I received.

I did Linda's bag swap. I received a wonderful bag from Annie of Australia. I love it! She did a wonderful job and it's a different pattern from any I've seen. It's going to make a wonderful project bag. She was also kind enough to send me a little kit to make some cute owls. Thanks so much Annie! Cally likes it too.

I had Priscilla from New Zealand for my partner and I made her this bag. I was happy to know that she too was happy with hers.

I still have two swaps to go....the stitchers angel and secret santa. I've been stitching away working on those and my PIFs.
Speaking of those, I got this wonderful project bag and embroidered dish towels from Mar. Aren't they just the cutest? Thanks so much, I really love them. :)

And that brings me to my part......if there are 3 of you that would like handmade something from me.....I have 3 open slots. :)

I hope to get caught up on Judy's Bom....I'm sorta of a little (alot) behind! as I haven't even started yet and she'll be posting Block 6 today. That's my plan for the weekend....I do believe Judy is hosting another Quiltathon. :)

I have more stuff that I've been working on and I'll share that a bit later. Thanks for stopping by....I hope to be a much better blogger from now on. :)

Very, very cute stuff! Both what you've received and what you've sent! With all these swaps, no wonder you've been MIA! Welcome back to Blogland, though--we've missed you!

Well I thought you'd fallen in to a deep hole, glad to see you're still with us. Love the bags and those gifts from Mar are just lovely.

What fun swaps . . . I love your card *s*

Lots of cute things on your blog today, including the kitties. Cats are such funny creatures.

Thank you so much for posting the link to Judy's page. For some reason her posts are not showing up on my bloglines and I almost missed block 6.

PS...I have not started mine either, but I do have them all printed out and I will make them, eventually.

Glad you liked the bag - I liked the one you made too. I'd better get on with my christmas swap.
