Spring Blooms Mini Quilt received...

IT ARRIVED, YESSSS!!!!!! And let me tell you, it was worth the wait !!!!!
I'm sooooo happy that I have it here to admire and pamper, still didn't find the right place for it, I want it to be a great place, so I'm still thinking, but meanwhile...I admire it every time I pass near it!!! LOL

This is the LOVELY quilt that Toni of Scrappy Stuff made exclusively for me, she herself batik and hand-dyed the fabrics some time ago and used them for me!!! Thank you Toni for that!!! I really LOVE the effect you achieved, especially the one in the middle, at the lower part of the leaf, that little bit with yellow is just gorgeous!!!

Oh My Gosh, it has so many things going on that it blows my mind!!

I hope you appreciate all of the beautiful work she's done in the quilt!!! I just hope the picture does it justice!!!

She appliquéd leaves, stitched beading, charms, a lovely butterfly button, painted with metallic paint and finally she made a gorgeous quilting with variegated thread, she quilted fantastic leaves all around!!! Just stunning!!!

She also wrote a beautiful phrase as part of the leaf: "Whatever is true...what is kind...be of like mind". Lovely saying, Toni!!! Thank you soooo much!!!

I just can't thank you enough!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!! I'll treasure it !!!


And a big THANK YOU to Mishka that organized this wonderful swap through which I met wonderful people!!!
Have a great day everyone!!!

What I've been up to...

Hi everybody!

There has been a lot of sewing going on lately but, as it's all for different swaps, I can't show the end results yet. But I do have some sneak peeks for you!


These are the first cut pieces for the Mini Quilt I'm making for my partner of 'In the Good Ol' Summertime Mini Quilt Swap' organized by the Quilting Gallery. I'm really having fun with it, and let me tell you, it'll yell Summer!


I LOVE this one, as it's done with Amy Buttler and Heather Bailey's fabrics that I personally love, and so does my partner for the July Summer Lovin' STUD swap on Flickr. She's from Germany and we have almost the same tastes!! So, it wasn't difficult just to grab gorgeous fabrics and begin sewing. It's pieced, needle turn appliquéd, and machine quilted. I only have the binding and label to finish, gather some gorgeous extras and send it over to Germany, to be pampered by daveandsusi! I hope she likes it!

Kiss, kiss, hug, hug to you all!

Have a nice day everyone!

And the winner is...

Hi you all!
The day has finally arrived, I've picked the name of the winner of my first giveaway!
A big thank you to all of you who entered, I loved to read all your wonderful comments! I hope you come back again soon!

I was planning to print the names but my printer said 'No way, I'm not working on a Saturday', so I had to go back to the traditional way, and write down each of your names.

Then cut and folded carefully!

I'll have to say it wasn't easy to take a name out of the bowl whith my eyes closed and trying to take a photo at the same time, just imagine it!

It was hilarious!
But in the end I managed to do it and pick a little paper with the lucky winner's name, and she is...


I'll contact you right now and send your goodies next week!!
Thank you to all of you, and stay tunned, I'll have another giveaway by the end of July to celebrate my birthday, July 31st !!!
Have an nice weekend everyone!

Pincushion Swap Received...

Hi you all!
It's been a long time since I last posted!

I'm HAPPY!!! Yesterday, when I arrived home, I was handled a package from Heidi, and I quickly read the label outside the box and it said...Pincushion!! I ran to my house and opened it, and was thrilled!!! Heidi has REALLY SPOILED ME !!!

Look what she sent me!!! First of all a really cute card with lovely words in it! Thank you, Heidi! It's the cutest card ever, it glitters!

Look at the wrapping, sweet bags with ribbons in red and green, two of my favourite colors!!!

It's so yummy that I almost ate the whole package! LOL

LOOK AT THE LOOT! Gorgeous!!!

First of all, the piece the ressitance, the pincushion!!! She was extremelly generous to include not one, not two, not three...but FIVE PINCUSHIONS!!! Three big and two small with the cutest strawberry shape!!! Heidi, you didn't know this, but I LOVE strawberries and already have two strawberry pincushions and am making the third, I just LOVE them !!! I love pincushions and have a little collection, and with this wonderful addition I'm thinking of where to display them!!! They are too special not to show them off! Of course, I'll use one of them, I just have to decide... I can't just pick one, I love them all!!

She added wonderful sewing notions!! Look!!!Gorgeous laces, ribbons and trims!!! I just love them all, especially the leaves, the inches and the 'Friends Forever' logo!!!

And then the icing of the cake!!! Metallic thread in red and pink (love them), a gorgeous DMC green embroidery thread and spools!

Heidi, I just can't thank you enough for the wonderful package you put together for me, I LOVE all the goodies, it's so me, I think you have a magic ball and read minds!! LOL


I wish your partner spoiled you as you did with me!!!

Thank you Sandra for organizing this wonderful swap! I look forward for the next one!!!
