Scraps ahoy!

Yesterday I received my scraps and extras from Michelle at Keyka Lou - perfect timing as we had just launched the Mouthy Stitches Zippy Purse & FQ of Scraps swap!




These are cute fabric covered magnets on a needle sharpening pad; eat your heart out Masterchef!

It wasn't so sunny when I took the photos, so they are not looking as special as they really are, but they are rather lovely, and I am thinking some may even appear in or with my swap purse.

Susan, Cindy and myself have been absolutely overwhelmed by the speed and enthusiasm of sign ups for our 'little swap'.  We were going to be happy if there were 50 of us joining in by next weekend; in just over 24 hours we have already reached 80 members in the flickr group!  Have you joined - if not, why not!?

Finally for today, I can report that I have pieced one side of my Brit Bee Constellation quilt, and I even got a couple of decent photographs, but I will save those for tomorrow; I am hoping to finish the second side tonight... it looks fantastic!

  8. Nice scraps! They say so much about a quilter, like a fabric biography.
    I spy with my beady little eye some Denyse Schmidt fabrics.
