Always something!

Yes, with me, it's always something.  Sometimes, I'm not even really sure what will happen.  LOL  See the image below?  Those are the embellishments for my next project......which is in the works, but still a secret so I can't show you until my partner gets it.....when it's finished, naturally!  I made those cute mushroom buttons.  They're not perfect...actually, my first ones were better, but the color was off so I had to redo them last night.  They match much better now. 


The mail has been good.  I am getting some of the swap items that I have coming lately and it's so fun!  Remember when I sent this mug rug:

Daisy Mug Rug

Well, this is the one I got from my partner, Amy Crane Designs:

Awesome Mug Rug package from Amy.

She had all sorts of neat stuff in the package she sent.  I think I just sent some small packages of coffee.

Then there was the Scrappy Pincushion Swap, remember?  I sent this (plus some pintoppers):

Rainbow #2 Pincushion

With all the ones I made, I was somewhat torn on which to send, but I noticed that she did like rainbow things, so I went with that one.  In return I received this beauty from Mel Sews:

My package from Mel Sews

It was so nice of her to include extra fabrics that she used....plus those pretty magnets (which are on my refrigerator at this moment.)

Lastly, I think you might like to see my latest wall hanging that was sent to it's owner this week:

A client's wall hanging

I covered the banner flags with dimes to protect the privacy of the owner since they spell her last name.  I hope she's pleased.  That was a fun commission quilt to make.  I have a few to go yet, so if you are one of the ones waiting, my thinking cap is still on.....I have not forgotten you!  So, that's it for today, my friends.  Hope you are all well and happy.....after all, that's the main thing, isn't it?

I love your work! I love the pincushion from your partner too! I always go away from your blog inspired to do more applique and now I am going to try the Charlie Harper QAL using the instructions you have posted from time to time on how to do it. Thanks!
