Overdue Thanks

Oh do I have some overdue thanks.  My mailbox has been over flowing with swap packages, and
my manners have been poor in the " Thank You" department!

The first goes out to Andrea who made me this beautiful table topper for the Spring Swap.
I love it, and cannot wait until we find a new home to use it 

The next goes out to Hermione who was my partner in the Seams to Me swap.  Although I don't have a photo ( I know, shame on me), I wanted to thank your publicly for the beautiful bag she made me ( the Taxi Tote) from Anna Maria Horner's book.  It will definitely be used quite a bit this summer for the trips to the pool and lake this summer.  

And finally, a  THANK YOU to Jennie for the beautiful quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap 6.  I am a huge dot fan, so this could not be more perfect.  She also included 30+ 6" charm squares of Amy Butler fabrics, the coolest coloring/ sticker books for The Shmoo, and a lovely card.  I have to admit that I have not hung this beauty on the wall.  Instead, it is living in my car so that I see it every day.  That may sound a bit strange, but I spend quality time in my car bringing The Shmoo to and from school.

On another topic I have joined 2 more swaps....it's an addiction, I'm aware! 

 The first is Amanda Jean's Quilt-a-long where we make 1 nine patch a day for 10 weeks.  This will be the new quilt for J and my bed once we move.  It will be scrappy, completely from my stash, and hold many, many memories.  These 9 patches are a bit addictive ( I've made 24 in the last 7 days).  Here is my first round of blocks:

The second is Quilt Around the World hosted by SummerSadie.  I will keep you posted on how things are going in swap world...cause I know you are interested :-)

Peace be with you.


  1. I'm in the 'Block a Day' and 'Around the World' tooooo! Love your blocks, just finished cutting my squares.

  2. I just received my bag in the mail and it is perfect! The fabrics are just my style and I can't wait to take it out tomorrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I gushed about it some more here: http://hermionejschwartz.blogspot.com/2009/05/seams-to-me-swap-my-other-part.html
