BooK of IDeAs

A blogger friend showcases a wonderful needle wallet on her header and I've admired it for a long while....so I asked Sheila where she got the pattern from? And it's here... in this "Art to Heart" book by Nancy Halvorsen called Sew Necessary. There are lots of ideas in there and for a variety of things.
It's worth a look.

Aren't these hangers WoNdErFuL!


~~~*~~*~~~
This funky little girl travelled all the way from Tamworth NSW and was given to me by DD#2 as a gift.
Isn't she just the cutest thing!!!!


.~~~*~~*~~~.


It's time to mail off the Lets Exchange Casserole HoT PaD to your partner if you haven't already done so. Mailing deadline is April 15th... so get it all wrapped up so pretty and get on down to the post office! I'm really excited waiting to receive mine!
My partner has let me know that my HoT PaD arrived safe and sound in Austria.
Remember this....
Sabine let me know that she loves the Aussie fabric so I hope she thinks of me and Australia every time she uses it!
How much fun are SwApS!
~~~**~~~**~~~

And my 2 x 6inch blocks arrived in Western Australia too.
Susan asked for butterfly blocks so that's what I sent.
