Swaps & Secrets


This was the Monthly Doll Swap Group quilt that I received from Roberta.  What was so cool is that she had grown up in my area.  I just love all the green goodness mixed with many of Mother Natures sweetness.  This is just stunning and lots of work into this little piece.


And I am an advocate of labeling - look!!  She machine embroidered her label right on the backing fabric.


I received this lovely from my 'Sewing With Friends' partner - how cool is this!!  Just adore everything about it - and the scissors, just too funny as I had been looking at these to buy for myself - now I have them.

  
And with all that was on my list for the month, I took on testing a pattern.  NO this is the back of the quilt - you will have to wait until I get word that I can flip this over.  Let's just say, this is an afternoon project that you will just enjoy.


I was re-organizing and preparing some boxes to mail out some items.  I put the tape away and YUP - Moe in the Box!  I only just noticed he has his tongue out - stinker.


I think he tried out every box, but he liked this one best and no coaxing would get him out.  So I had to let him nap for a bit - once he got hungry, I finally got all my boxes packed.

  11. Hopefully, when you get the signal to flip the test quilt over, you won't have to photo it on snow!! It was quite nice of Moe to test the boxes for you! I had to put the cat's boxes away for my party this week - I best get them out soon. LOL

  12. Lucky you those quilts are so cute. As for Moe he is adorable and make a purrfect tester. You can never be sure if boxes are fit for purpose unless you get a cat to test them.
