Swaptastic!

I seem to have entered 3 swaps for xmas!! I am surprised at myself and a little frightened.

First of all there's Indigo Blue's Christmas Decoration Swap. She needs ONE MORE PLAYER. Care to join anyone?? All you need to do is make a decoration for tree or door handle and a card.


Then there's French Knots' Christmas swap which entails making a "surprise gift" - anything from a softie, to a mini quilt, pincushion, or bag. I have been partnered up with Anne who makes beautiful quilts with celtic knots - one of my very favourite things!!!!


And then there's the Spare a Square Scrap Challenge over at JC Handmade which involves sending a piece of fabric 12"x12" which will then be cut up into 10 bits. In return, I will recieve 10 smaller bits of fabric and have to make something fabulous. EEEEeeeeK! This one freaks me out the most. I'm a bit worried incase I don't like my alloted 10 scraps! I have sent a piece of Kaffe Fasset which I love:


I'm going to be busy aren't I?!

And an honoroury mention to The Italian Connection who today is celebrating her birthday and also her 14th wedding anniversary. Here we all are, back in 1994.

I recognised you without the tag ;-)

Three swaps, that's brave! I haven't gone in for any this year - last year I ran out of time to make the things I wanted to for my family so this year I'm determined not to! But then, I think you work more efficiently than I do - small people and the computer lure me away far too frequently ...

I'm in IB's Decoration swap - looking forward to it.

Happy Anniversary to your friend in Italy! x

You are so brave. I'm always afraid that whatever I make or send someone won't like. UGH!

Three swaps that's very brave of you. The first two look fine but the thrid - they're going to be quite small pieces aren't they...1 1/2 inch squares. I suspect they'll be some stunning things come out of that endeavour. Kaffe Fassett is a favourite of mine too - big, bold colourful - lovely J.

That's a lot of swaps! I'm doing the JC handmade one too - no idea what I'll make yet ... hopefully inspiration will strike when I see the fabrics!
