    Here is part of my button collection...
    Nice collection Ladybug, I never would have thought to display them in frames.

    ok so I ordered my sp something special and didn't realize that it was coming from Canada. After I bought and paid for it the seller emailed me and said it could take two weeks to get the item so I really really hope it gets here before the 15th. Help me pray that it does. I did make something homemade for the first time for a sp. Thanks for all the ideas ladies.

    Ok so my SP likes animals a lot and the fabric colour she is looking for is dearg (that's the colour in Irish, you didn't think I would make it easy did you). She collects something, she drinks something and she eats something. Well have you figured it out yet? I have just to make a handmade item for her which she would like and her package will be going out early next week. We have had heavy rain here for the last couple of days so it has been miserable, no sign of summer at all.

    Sent my package to SP yesterday and PM'd Lori. SP's zip code adds up to 24 and there's lots of lakes in her state. I didn't open the package like I threatened and add more, but I'm starting now to get some small things together for next time. Loved the button pictures. I have a button collection, but didn't think to put it on my sheet - you can bet I will next time!

    melinda if it doesn't make it in time, you can always mail it separately. i am sure your pal would not mind getting two squishies. don't sweat it.

    SOOOOooooo check this, ladies and gents I won the Swap lottery!! Yep, check this.. everything I asked for and homemade banana bread!! Thank you so much TheMamaHauser aka Kelly! Oh you cannot see it, but the sewing machine pad has the cutest little charm that says "Made for you" I tried desperately to get my camera to focus in on it and it just plain refused to do so. OK onto the drooling! hehehehe

Have never really seen any with the crystals all around the back of the ankle before. And the stretch even provides comfort due to the "give". And no high heels means safety on stairs. They have it all.. Brand = Madden Girl. Color me happy.

    boy did you ever win the swap lottery. I didn't think about sending some home made breads or anything like that. Such a great idea. Great pictures and great squishy you got.

    my lqs had their clearance fabrics on further mark down to $2.87/yd for July 4th. I stayed out of the store lest i have been tempted to buy fabric i had no room to store. so i popped in today just to see what i missed.... arrrggh i am so glad i stayed away lest i would have been tempted.

    with having 2+ weeks of above 100+ degree temps it is not cool anywhere. the lqs wasn't cool and the grocery store was a bit warm also. i have lost my appetite with all this heat so i bought some fruits to eat and a bag of carrots for the rabbits. my local grocery store chain sells fruits & vegetables from local farms from time to time so they had peaches from eckert's farm today complete with worm holes and squirrel nibbles. you can't go more authentic than that.

The theme was quilty chaos - crazy quilts. oldcatlady spent alot of time making this and I love it! The doll quilt swap is alot of fun as it doesn't take long to make and uses up scraps!

    oh boy Hav~ I always liked the way they looked but had never made one until the doll quilt swap in May and now I'm obsessed with them haha....I pick up stuff everywhere now that can be used on them!! It's all Krystyna's fault and then she enables me further by sending lace and satin and velvet and all kinds of goodies to go on the crazy quilt
