This week´s projects

I recieved this great swap package from Lindsay in Chesapeake. It was the
Feb. swap at http://www.purplepinkandorange.com/swap/swapdetails.html



Thanks Lindsay!





I have prepared this parcel to be sent off to my swap
partner in the color-iffic swap-o-rama.














I made this funny cat with a Wee Wonderfuls pattern. It was much easier than I thought it would be. The owl was inspired by this on flickr and I made it with some of the lovely materials Lindsay sent me.



















I am having a real love affair with sewing, I love the colours and watching things come together. My first patchwork quilt is in the making and I will post some photos soon.
The group Sew? I knit! has inspired me to try something new and sew a skirt. I have never completed a piece of clothing I could actually wear so wish me luck. I will be making this.

Hi Claudia! I LOVE those animals -- they are so so cute. You're so creative. I had a grandmother who was a master seamstress, quilter, crafter, completely amazing, and I never learned a single thing from her. Drat it. My mother is so sad that her mom didn't live to see the amazing craft boom that is going on these days. She'd have loved your things. And the swap things sounds so fun. I'm going to have to try it one of these days!

Hi there!

I LOVED that cat! What a face! I'm so impressed that you are able to make such beautiful things. I was never a very good seamstress. I can't wait to see your skirt!
