sew:stitch:swap

Sew... yesterday I gave myself permission to make a little project that I thought would be useful when I pack up my supplies and head to Andrea`s for my Tuesday timeouts. It`s a little folio to hold my rotary cutter, scissors, pencils, pins, and patterns. I only wish I`d made it a little larger to hold my 9.5 inch ruler. I found the project in the current issue of Quilts and More magazine. And, if I do say so myself, I think the use of Moda ribbon for the ties was a nice touch! It sure felt good to make something completely useful... a great way to get back into the swing of sewing after Christmas!

Stitch... this is what I plan on finishing up today. It`s destined to live in Utah with my sweet blogging friend Julie. We`re having a snowman swap, what fun since we don`t have any snow. How I love my blogging friends!

Swap... and speaking of swaps... this was the wonderful package that arrived at my door in early December, from the lovely Gina. We had a penny rug swap and she tucked in the sweet Christmas bag along with the amazing rug... nice bonus! Since there was a little mix up in mailing, I lucked out and also received a yummy maple sugar melt from Roxanne (sorry, no blog link) Oh, how I`ve enjoyed this package!
I hope you`ve been doing some sewing, stitching, and swapping too lately... it`s guaranteed to bring a smile!

Very cool bag girl...I may just have to make me one...you know, for that eventual moment in my life when I'll actually be able to escape my house to come sew at yours;)
