And now for fantasticmio's fabulous bunch...ta da:

I love the drawn diagram!!!  =]


















Quite a collection, right!  I am really thrilled to have these and to have been a part of this swap.  All of my motifs together are going to make some pretty, pretty cushions/pillows...if I can figure out how to do them all justice in joining them...Thank you, fantasticmio....=]

MIA for entirely too long...my deep appologies to everyone, esp. my partners....I truly have been under the weather and slowly getting back to well and energenic(ha!).  I just picked up some knitting late last night...first time since leaving Texas.  Anyways...here are the long overdue pics:

from peachessunshine:









my pictures really do not do the color and design of each one justice!  They are so darn pretty!!! I'm feeling way over my head in trying to put them together nicely into cushions/pillows.  Thank you for each one, peachessunshine.

Glad the motifs were received in good time n that you both like them... Smiley
The octagon's yarn is Encore worsted...a wool n acrylic blend.

I bought the 150 Knit/Crochet book at Michael's...cant recall author's name.  It might have some ideas and special shaped joining motifs to make, too.

Still in TX for the week.  I'll get pics posted after making my way home.

TTFN...

My last motifs are finished up today, too!  Cheesy  Printing out list to send w/them and they will be in the mail later today.  I am looking forward to seeing the motifs that I recieve and then to figure out how to make them into the cushions/pillows for the back porch....hehehehe Grin  I hope that others will post completed items or post sites that can help in the finishing process.  Any Pins or patterns to share??

Nev and I are packing today for our trip to Texas...going to see Mum and Dad.  =]  Lotsa pics coming on board when I get back.  I do have some to upload, too, from this last weekends activities...sew-in and a birthday party.

Quilt Group Sew-in:  Nev's helping me get to cutting up some fabrics:



...and laying out some of the quilt pieces.  I will have to cut and sew these.  Sorry Nev's not more in the pic... Sad



Nev and the birthday girl...and he's ready for some cake!!  Oops, looks like Nev's lost his left nostril again...*Yikes!*

One more motif crocheted and ready to go!  I have been thinking much of the time of knitting up one motif...I've seen some really pretty ones(or just Kewel!)...but I've stuck w/the crocheted variety!  I hope that the motifs are not too 'generic'...I really have tried a few things(like bullion stitch) but if they don't look like one I'd send...it don't get sent!!!   Smiley  Today's first trials didn't make the cut...but I really liked the motif!!  I may make a purse or something out of it later!

I thought my motifs were looking a bit large...but then this isn't cotton thread...it's worsted weight yarn!  Cheesy

still two motifs to make up...four to crochet!!  I have an idea for one of them...

Happy Stitchin' ya'all

Here is one of our latest adventures...back to the old hometown and visiting w/Angie in her diner.



He doesn't have a baseball team he prefers (we do...Go Cubs!!) but he liked the vines that were growing everywhere! 


...and the lillies!! And then my camera died!  And then I couldn't find the charger for the battery...and then...well???  ...no excuses!!  Roll Eyes

Prof. Neville and I made our way up to Shaumberg, Il for the Quilt Expo...and we found YaRn!!  yes, he DiD pick out the green yarn!!



Later, at my Sis's he helped himself to some starburst candies...



And then he was ready to let me know that stitching time was done!



Ahem....MEP...don't ask me how he got out of his tie and is now in the ribbon you had around the felt bag...which is full of quilt store cards(Thank you!!)...his ribbon is tied to my key chain.  =]
