I have posted long sermons on being in your sewing journey LOL
to make a long story short we are all on a journey and we all had to start somewhere. we all have alot to learn and noone is concerned with your skills in the swaps but with getting something you made! My biggest thing is I think it is so cool to hold in my hand something my partner was holding in her/his hand not long ago!
I LOVE getting stuff someone made for me!!
We all are our own worst critics and we can pick our own stuff to pieces when it comes to flaws or mistakes.
besides how does anyone know that you didn't mean for it to come out that way? LOL
swaps are for having fun and NOT a quilt contest where the best one wins! We ALL win when we get a sweet pkg in the mail from the swap!!!!
Hi All!! I decided what I wanted to do and started on it today. It's not very big (about 15 inches) and I hope someone loves it. It's the 2nd wall hanging I've made from this pattern so, obviously, I like it :) All I have left is the quilting, backing, and binding which won't take me nearly as long as the paper piecing did!! The photos were taken with my cell so the colors are a little off.
Happy Quilting Everyone!!
Oh Deb that is soooo cute!! Love it! Such great ideas everyone comes up with!
Sign up list!
Remember there is no sign up limit. As long as you have a wall hanging to send by the mail date you can sign up at any time!!
Welcome to our new players!! Hope to see lots of fun pictures everyone!!
Yeah!! We are just 3 short of having the same number of players we had in the last swap! we're getting there to have a great swap again this time!
New rule- anyone later than 2 weeks in mailing will be restricted from signing up for the next swap
Any exceptions need to be made by me. Life does happen and I realize that.
oooooooo, that is so cute! ( i meant to make all those o's. truly!) i love fishies! and i don't know how to paper piece yet so that just blows me out of the water! ok, that' a pun. what a day i'm having! for some reason i have muscle cramps every time i move. i sooooo want a full body transplant!! one of a 23 year old, if you don't mind:D.
Sorry you're having a bad day!! I agree - I would like the body of someone about half my age but I sure don't want their mind!! I'll keep my own :) Thanks for the compliment on the little fishies and the great pun :)
