*Last week was full of surprises! One thing I've had a lot of fun working on is the Scrappy Pincushion Swap over on flickr. Since nobody knows who is making their pincushion, it's fun to look at the photos posted in the group to see what might be yours! Here's what I've been working on for my very fabulous partner!
I know....my partners' tastes are like mine! I loved making these tiny hexies for her! These are the 1/2" size. They are a bit 'fiddlier' to work with, but still as addicting as making the larger ones. I'm a little further on the pincushion now, but I think I'll just wait till the finished to show. ;) For the swap, each person submits a mosaic of favorites, to inspire and lead their partner as to what to make for them. This is the mosaic I put together for my partner. Great fun on flickr I tell ya! ;)
*We've been having some gray days around here lately, so when my hubby brought these colorful roses home on one of those particularly gray days, and for no apparent reason, I was super surprised and happy! They surely brightened up the kitchen and Ava was enamored!
*Another fabulous day was celebrating Austin's 5th Birthday! The surprises weren't for me, but for him of course, and it was great to see him smiling. Such a happy little guy!
*I also thoroughly enjoyed this nice HUGE oatmeal raisin cookie from Great Harvest Bread that my super sweet visiting teachers brought over....Just to tell me they love me! I snarfed it down so quickly, I barely remembered to snap a photo! This is all I had left to show!
Ava helped me finish it off, which made her one happy little girly!!
*And last, but not least, I received a very sweet 'Thank You' in the mail from a flickr friend for helping with a couple quarters of the 3 X6 Sampler Quilt Mini Bee. Thank you Tiffany! ;)
As you can see, I've been one happy person lately! :)
