A little quilt for Oliver...

This is what I've been working on, it's a little quilt, baby quilt size I guess,  for my dog Oliver.

He loves everything in fabric or yarn so I decided to make him his own quilt...Mmmm, I'll let you in on a little secret...he already tried it !!! But it's not finished yet, I still have to quilt and bind, the worst part, I know, but I love both of them because I'm closer to finishing my little piece !!!

Have a great day everyone !!!

September STUD Sent and Received...

 I took part in STUD's (Swap Till U Drop, a Flickr Group) Anniversary Swap in September and my partner for that month was Bec from Australia. We had to make a Mini with the 1st Anniversary Theme, so it could include yellow, gold, a clock, carnations (a flower that I hate), etc, all things related to a 1st year Anniversary.

As my partner liked some of the Minis I had done I chose to make one with a little birdie on it,
similar to the one I sent to my Summertime Mini Quilt Swap partner.
So much yellow going on here !!!

And look at the gorgeous quiltie that Bec made for me !!! She chose the clock as a theme and she made me a Quilter's clock, and I LOOVE it !!! Her sewing machine does wonderful embroidery !!!

It's already up and running in my sewing room, counting every minute I get to do what i love the most...QUILTING AND EMBROIDERY !!!
Thank you so much Bec, I LOOOVE it !!!

Have a great day everyone !!!

Stitcher's Angel Parcel Sent...

These are the gifties I made for my Stitcher's Angel.
She's a special lady, very sweet, and her favorite color is lime green, but I found out about this after I had made my first giftie: the red needlecase.
 After that I included her favorite color in the other projects I made for her.

Helen's bag in my partner's colors...

A pincushion with a modified Gum Tree Designer's pattern, and a huge needlecase with pockets...

And this is the whole parcel I sent her. Hope she likes her pressies !!!

Have a great day everyone !!!

This is the Frienship bag I sent to my partner in the Swap. She doesn't have a blog, so I don't know her tastes. I decided to make a girly bag with pastel colors then, I hope she likes it !! I also added FQs and a postcard from Buenos Aires, and off it went !!

I just hope to receive mine any day soon, fingers crossed !

Have a great day everyone !
