A squishy, and a swap update...

I know, I know... I've been quiet for a bit longer than I planned... Again. But, it's really just been nice and boring here. That's all. Not much to talk about. Little Miss had her shots- YUCK! And we've been quietly hanging out around the house. I've been attempting to figure out the Christmas situation. I'm planning to knock out my shopping this week, I hope (cross your fingers for luck for me), and I've been trying to get a handle on handmade gifts... You know- trying to analyze whether or not I'm on track, if they're gonna be finished in time, that kind of thing. So far, I'm in pretty reasonable shape. I think. I hope.


So, I was trying to think up something to say, that wasn't too boring, or a rant about something you didn't want to hear... And to my rescue comes this, in the mail today...





A lovely little squishy package! What was in it, you ask?













These! Lovely little I Spy squares, in a variety of sizes. I think there might be enough there for a baby quilt... (I know I didn't do a very good job at spreading them all out for the camera, but I did look at every square, and they are so cute!!)

These come to me courtesy of Sandy over at
Sew this is my blog...

A while back, she was going through her scraps for I Spy fabrics and she generously offered to send some extra little goodies out to anyone who needed them. Thank you so much Sandy!! I love them and I can't wait to get started on my quilt... Just as soon as I get Christmas over with.


Speaking of Christmas (again)...

I have finally made a choice for my Secret Santa Swap project. No more changing my mind!





This is what I'm planning to use.









Here's another shot. The colors might be a little better here...




Yes. It is felt. This project will be a first for me. I've wanted to try felt for a while, but hadn't had a chance. So, I'm really excited about this one. So far, it's looking pretty good. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I'll post pictures when we get closer to the deadline... You know. After it's finished.

Also, I saw a post a little bit ago... For another swap. You can call me crazy if you want. I sort of feel that way (most of the time, actually). But... I signed up to join it anyway...
It's a pincushion swap over at http://www.pigtalesandquilts.com/. Sounds like a lot of fun. And I've been on a pincushion kick for a couple of months anyway, so I shouldn't have too much extra work to do to get them ready to go out. Yay! (Now I just need to get that darn button over to my sidebar...)
So, I guess that's all the news we have for now... Looks like a boring, but contented, week ahead of us. Visits with relatives, some Christmas shopping, and maybe a little stitching of some sort... A nice calm normal week. Just like we like them... Happy stitching and I'll see you all next time!
