A week and a half ago I received a package from Sonjaboo, took a picture and then forgot to download it (silly me!).

I had asked for some purple and yellow fabric for a quilt I am making for our bedroom and Sonjaboo picked that wish to fulfill and let me tell you she went far above and beyond what I expected.

Thanks to her contribution, I now have enough material to finish the quilt.

Here's what she sent:

I received two packages on Monday and am finally getting pictures posted.

First, crystalfairy made me this wonderful cross stitch sunflower, which will be an excellent addition to my fall theme.



And, second, rain sent me this beautiful knit summer purse (it's lined).



THANKS to both of you!

Batgirl let me know last night that she had received the apron I sent her and I've been dying to post this picture - not only to show off the apron but because I convinced my 14 year old son to model it.  He would only do so if I promised not to take his head in the picture and if I promised not to show the picture to his Dad or brother and if I promised not to show it to anyone we know personally.  So, I have stuck to all those 'guidelines' but wanted to post it here.

batgirl wanted a retro apron, something that Lucy would have worn back in her day.  She gave me a number of color and pattern suggestions and the one I could find and was happiest with was lime gingham.  This pattern was tons of fun to make (for the most part) and it took over 3 yards of fabric (lots of ruffles).

So, here it is:

I'm finally able to post pictures of the items I received last week.

This is the apron and material that I received from mata:



and these are the candy goodies and material (a surprise bonus) I received from simplyfussfree.  It's fun to try candy from other parts of the world!

I had asked for someone to make me some chili related kitchen items and kiki_eks fulfilled that wish.

She sent me 2 wonderful dishtowels and a pot holder.  They are fantastic!

See for yourselves:  (uug, the colors are really off - the fabric is a very nice red, not pinky like it looks)

599  My t-shirt quilt made by my Mom in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: May 23, 2006 12:31:03 PM
I've been looking at everyone else's t-shirt quilts and thinking about posting a picture of the one my Mom made for me many years ago and am finally getting around to it.

She collected up t-shirts during my growing up years and made this.  I LOVE it and the quality is so excellent.  It has been used and used and washed and washed and yet it still looks fantastic.

As you can see in the pictures, for many of them she used the whole front rather than cutting them apart - I like this and am planning to do the same with t-shirts I have been collecting of my sons.  She tied it together rather than quilting it.



Here's a close up of the center of the quilt:

Fadeawaydream sent me some wonderful knit dishcloths and I'm so happy with them.  I can crochet but not knit and I prefer knit dishcloths so I have to get others to make them for me.  She sent me 4!!!!!!!  The two solid color ones have the word LOVE knit into them.
