    Thanks Nise! I LOVE my mini quilt.
    I literally gasped taking it out of the packaging. It is perfect. I'll post pics later.

    I am SO glad that you like them! This quilt swap was kind of like cooking for someone you don't know. You never know what they might like so the best thing to do is just jump in!

    This is from jaciqltznok. I love the hummingbird, and the embroidery, and the flowers! It's just gorgeous. And the colors are really quite sophisticated. I think it's kind of "modern arty." I am using J's photo b/c it really captures the stitching and what I think is a hand-dye fabric in the center behind the bird. Jaciqltznok used a metallic thread on the outlining for bird which really don't show on my photo and her colors are much more vibrant. I wish I could hold this mini up to everyone to show off th beautiful work. What fun! Thank you!
    When can we do this again?????

    It is very pretty Maggiedeux, and I love the hummingbird in the center. I also love the pretty stitching. I have always seen these two colors together with the flower pansies, and they are beautiful.

    Havplenty that is fine, and yes you are a patient woman unlike me but, I went and rechecked, and it shows delivery confirmation so it's probably just waiting on one patient woman.

    i'm afraid i'm less patient! i haven't heard from my partner since the beginning when we shared info. i sent her mini a long time ago. i hope she rec'd it!! and i hope she is ok. i know her family keeps her busy. i will try pming her one more time. keep your fingers crossed all is fine !
    i just went back and checked the dates. i mailed the mini around the 21st. so it has been almost 2 weeks. how long does it take to go from one coast to the other? i told you i'm not very patient, (is my face red?). i'll relax and let things take their course.

    well during these summer months folks go on vacation and we just don't know that. in another thread a swapper hadn't heard from her partner and mentioned that she wasnt happy about it. turns out the recipient had been gone a coupla weeks on vaca visiting family. yep red faced was in order along with public apologies.

    i know we get excited about sending and receiving these swap packages and want to hear right away, but some patience is prudent. having some patience is just a suggestion.

    well. i waited nine months and a week for each of my children, so i guess i can wait for a mini quilt. lol
    i know she said her son is giving a bone marrow donation, so maybe he had to go early for that. it's not a walk in the park by any means! i just worry that's all. i think most of all, i just want to know that everything is ok.

    finally getting around to posting pics of the fabulous mini quilt Nise made for me.


    and close up of sewing machine and amazing quilting


    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! It is such a great piece. I'll be hanging it up in my sewing room for inspiration. (well, sewing, crafting, office, catch-all-for-all-my-crafting-junk room) It will go right next to me and my sewing machine.
