    Really 5 am. Over here it's 7 pm Thursday August 11th. Still at work. Been here since 8.30 this morning. I hate it when patients are late. Darn public transport. Should be leaving about now.

    Got a question that I'm throwing out to all of you.

    What are your favorite items that you have either received or made or saw someone else receive?

    Hmm. The first part is easy.....

    My favorite thing I received is the tote bag with dragon motif that you made me. Sorry everybody else but I love it so much I'm well on the way to wearing it out.

    The rest of the question is harder because I've not seen anything I *didn't* like nor received anything that I didn't like. My partners have always been very good about listening to the size of things and colors I like etc. I've used everything that I receive. It all starts with me taking it to the office and hanging it up for a bit. If it's a table runner, like I recently received, then I put it on the pull out tray on my desk. My pot holders that I've received I use every day and are hanging up in the kitchen so they are real handy. The pin cushions are all around my work area so I'm golden on everything that I've gotten.

    Ok here goes Dee.
    Favorite thing received is a tiss up between the Amy butler bag which I have almost worn out and the two wonderful sewing purses. Of course everything else I've received are equally beautiful and loved but these three are just sooooo useful.
    I have two tablerunners that get alternated on the downstairs coffee table and now my memory is slipping cos I think I've lost a months gift somewhere not in reality only in my mind.
    So far there is nothing I've seen that I would turn my nose up at. And the girls I work with look forward to ah months goodies.
    Sorry I'm not being much help.

    That is all great - this gives our newbies some ideas.

    As for me - favorite is probably the totebag from Nancy since I use it everyday. I know I make them but haven't made myself one yet. The wall hanging from Bonni I still use on my kitchen table and rotate it with the other table toppers I got. And I love the pin cushions, doll and fabric hostess gifts as well.

    I too love everything I've seen made so far. The one I made and loved the most was the sweatshirt top even though it nearly drove me crazy making it. Love the element of surprise, even with all those hints.

    Hey I finally figured out the swap I lost in my mind. Was a darling purple thread carcher/pincushion. Figures the most recent which is on the sewing table would be the one I forget!

    LOL - I guess we are getting older and losing our memories. It is just so much fun to get anything made by someone else.

    Yes it is. It's nice, for me anyway, also to have others I can give my stuff to. I don't very often keep anything I make. It also is a good way to get me to try new things. LOL.

    Now that's just unfair since I can't do that. :( Have too much to do (like getting this swap project finished). LOL. I'll forgive you though.

    psst. what kind of dragon. (grins)

    dragons are never irrelevant my dear. But that is true I can't play or else my 10 projects I need to finish this month won't get done. Perhaps we'll be partners next and then you can tease me with dragons. LOL.

    Here's one for ya Bonnie

    "Second pic is an adaptation of the bows tuck, I'll be giving to a friend as a diaper bag. Was going to keep it for myself, but put the outside pocket on the wrong way. Didn't notice until it was too late. Annoys me too much to keep. Wil make myself another."

    Look under "One Hour Bag" :):):)
    Sorry Lindy!!! :(
