i love swaps, dont you?? there is just nothing like finding a lovely little(or not so little) package waiting for you in your mailbox. or in the case of a package that is too big to fit in the mailbox, and has to be dragged all the way to the front porch (at least this is the impression i get from my mail lady, who is usually none to pleased to have to exit her vehicle on the road and have to walk the 30 odd feet to my door) but i digress. today in the mail i received this huge lot of loveliness from sarah (krom_mama). i was overwhelmed with the amount of scrappage she sent me. me of large glass jar of her own scraps. i shall now have to find a larger container for my (mostly her) scraps. a good thing i must tell you. that wasnt all.....see that there in the pile??? why yes it is an adorable little 6" house quiltie!! eep! its is so so sweet. i am in awe of her work. the little logs in the log cabin about 1/2".just for scale i took a pic with a quarter....the star is about the size of a quarter and the house is two times the size. thank so much sarah, i will treasure this!!
i have an online friend that has a special needs son, and he is such a darling little boy. he likes to fixate on things and is loathe to change. i saw this little electronic gift card at target and i immediately thought of him. it has an adorable image of a little bear with a boy in a bed. the special thing about it is when you push a button, stars light up.
its kind of hard to tell in the picture. see that little bear sitting by his bed?? i thought, wouldnt he make a sweet bear??
shh! dont let him hear you, he's really shy. he is hiding, so dont let him know you can see him. i think he turned out cute, but i was thinking i really wanted the little boy i am making this for, to equate my little bear with the little bear on the card. so should i make another from a yellow minky fabric?? maybe make him a little pudgier?? not to mention daughter (teenage daughter i might add, she has no shame) wants to keep this one!! your thoughts please.......
oh and before i forget, we grilled out for memorial day, and lest you think that vegs dont eat that great, here is my supper....pssst thats a veg dog
and that mushy stuff in the front is potato salad...ok maybe it doesnt look so hot..
