I didn't get anything done yet.  Undecided I didn't like the things in my stash and didn't get the change to go to the store yet.
I don't think I can make it to the store tomorrow, I have a kid home, feeling sick. Soooo, I will have to wait untill Saturday.

Maybe I can get something done tomorrow, will visit your Pinterest again RedMenace to decide what colours would be loved by you!  Smiley

EEEPP!! I received an amazing package from my partner and lovely friend CraftyMamaBee!!!  Grin  Shocked
She paper-pieced and quilted a beautiful cover with cross-stitched lovebirds, our lovebirds Bobbie and Lucky on the cover! Look!!



The backside is as pretty as the front! She cross-stitched a robin, my favourite bird which reminds me of my mom (she passed away when I was 9 and I think Robins are messengers from heaven). At the side you can also see my name! It is so pretty and very neat!



The inside has my name embroidered and it has a pocket.



And here is a pic of the inside of the back, also with a pocket:



A pretty ribbon keeps it closed if I want to.

Thanks so much Beck! It is beyond pretty and amazing!  I love every detail, the paper-pieced 'flower' frames you put the lovebirds in, the backside with the robin. The backside makes me think of the tail of a kite (I love kites)!
It is very 'me' and so neatly done! You are the best Beck! You rock!!  Kiss Kiss

I received!! I received!! And it is soooo personal and very, very pretty! And did I mention beautiful and awesome?!!  Grin

It is nice and sunny today, so I should be able to take decent, good pics of the cover.
Will do so and post in the gallery!


Oh and I also sent today! I hope it arrives sound and safe! I hope you will get good use of it and will treasure it as I will do mine!
Okay, I'm off to take and post pics!  Smiley

I'm getting excited to all this interest Grin  I have had some changes in my plans and may be able to get to it in middle April, early May Grin

No matter what is happening in my life, I'm alway up for swapping with you Sue!  Grin
And yes, a medium sounds great to me too! (or did I mention that already, mhm yes probably did...)

I have got good news and bad news... The good news is the postman visited us!! But the bad news is that nobody was home! So now I have to pick it up at the PO, but that isn't possible tomorrow so we all have to wait until Thursday. I know it is from CMB, 'cause it is for me and from the USA.

So it is here Beck!! I will pick it up Thursday morning when the kids are at school!  Cheesy

Started crafting today, it's coming along... magically Wink And speaking of stash-busting, I'm going to be able to use up a bunch of fancy wool yarn a friend brought back from Iceland for me years ago. Glad to finally put it to good use!

Woohoo for magic!!  Cheesy And double woohoo for stash-busting!!   Grin And triple woohoo for fancy wool from Iceland!!  Grin Grin

Haha!  Cheesy

I have more than one idea, will go through my stash today to see what's in there (always more than I remembered, oops  Tongue ) and maybe get started on that today!

My awesome partner is a magician = knitter!! Woohoo for that!! I love knitted things, but I cannot knit, tried it but somehow me and two needles looks more like wrestling than knitting  Tongue Haha!

- I just realized that my lovely, awesome partner did NOT say she will knit me something, she crochets too! I do that too, so of course I love crocheted things too  Grin Just go with what you want to make, awesome partner!!  Wink -

We are going to do an awesome large, or large awesomeness. That gives me the reason to sew more than one thing, haha  Grin One for her son and one for her! I love, love sewing so the more time I can spend playing with my lovely sewing machine, the better  Wink

I'm glad to read about large, enormous, endless stashes... I crafted several swaps only using stuff from my stash, but it doesn't show at all, yikes!  Shocked Haha!
I will keep trying to reduce it! Oh and I do buy new things, but only if it is a new item/craft or yarn in a different colour. Reason enough to get inside the craft store  Wink
