    oh yeah Kathleen, ha ha ha. if you want to be my partner next month, I may make another one. i'm still trying to get my swap partners addy from her. wrote her as soon as I got matched up with her. I think maybe she's on a vacation.
    I hope that's all. hope she's o.k. i'm still waiting for gifties from a few side swaps over 6-8 weeks ago, so don't want to any more of them right now. I rush my gifties out to people and always get mine late. what kind of bag are you doing?????

    this one I just did is different, not all fabric, part of it is 'pet screen' it's cool to work with, and is 'airy' too. has an antique sewing machine on it that says love to sew. Just came back from a trip to the lqs and joanns. picked up some necessary items and a small quilty kit. then picked up a sewing chocolate mold. so i'll be making and molding chocolates now also. there is spools of thread, scissors, a sm sewing box and needles. I wanted buttons, but couldn't find that kind of mold. also sampled cinnamon, mint, cream cheese and strawberry chocolates. yummmmmmmo.
    wish you were all here to taste with me. it was a fun afternoon. I actually went to get my diamond necklace and bangle fixed, he wasn't there so I took a trip down the block to the lqs. so many new items and colors to drool over. have a great day everyone.

    It's about 14" by 16" and a couple inches in width. A perfect size for me. I always have to be able to handle DH's wheelchair when needed so I can't use anything too big or it gets in the way of pushing the wheelchair. He hasn't needed it for along time but you just never know when he might.

    thanks, it's base is black pet screen (it's plastic screening) with the fab sewn onto it and a zipper. I love the design and put it on a golf shirt for myself.

    WE NEED PLAYERS FOR THE GOODIE SWAP!!!!

    Come on folks you don't have to make anything big. Just throw a scrappy quilt block together or a pincushion. It doesn't have to be anything that takes alot of time to make. This is a small swap just for fun.

    Maybe you have an orphan quilt block. You could frame it and send it or you could add borders and make it a small wall hanging. most of us have something that was started and set down. Now's your chance to clear another small project off your ufo list.

    If you're good at poetry you could write a poem for your partner. You could send something fun like a fun fabric,. It doesn't have to be anything that takes alot of time.

    You could send old quilt magazines or any quilt patterns you dont want anymore. It doesnt' have to be something you make.

    As long as it relates to quilting feel free to explore any ideas for gifts or goodies!! Hot chocolate for sipping while you read your magazines and or chocolate to sweeten the day.

    My mom is always finding quilt articles in magazines like Family Circle etc and saving them for me. so if you are one to save articles you could share those with your partner.

    Organization tips and any tips and tricks you use could be passed along in your pkg. We all love to find new ways to do things. I love to save pics of organizing ideas.

    I'm out of ideas but maybe someone else will come up iwth some.

    Of course anything you want to make like a pincushion or mugrug or whatever is more than welcome too!

    Lynnie I have no problem with you swapping with a partner but I would like to see more than 2 people join in. As soon as I feel we have some interest I will post another swap sign up.

    SO COME ON PEOPLE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO SWAP GIFTIES AND GOODIES!!

    Rhonda, I would love to swap. I don't swap when it is something specific, like the bag. I don't always have time to make a specific item. Just thought I would explain why I do not participate sometimes. Also, sometimes the swaps are so close together I am not sure what is being swapped. Must be my halfheimers kicking in !!!!

    I'll swap with someone again . Hopefully my computer won't break down like last week! I was hacked and had to hurry up and make something cause I didn't know if there were enough for the last swap. It worked out alright though, I think!

    These swaps can only survive if someone keeps them active! so if you love swaps jump in and have fun swapping!!
    I am keeping this simple so not much time involved and it's just a quick pick me up. not a major event to have to struggle through!! You don't have to sew unless you want to!
