No hand work with needles for me.... I poke myself too often.  I never found it to be relaxing so I am a machine owner.  Love the look, can't won't do the work.  Wink
I did sew the hook holder though.

I got some lovely machine embroidery squares from craftydeb!!  Makes me just want to start stitching Grin





Using them in Irish Chain quilts is the first thing that jumped into my mind, but I've got a couple other ideas too, so we shall see!!

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

I love my embroidery machine and am soooo glad I got one - not all of them are expensive - even Walmart sells some that are under $400.  I went with Janome though and am glad I did.  I do wonder when my kids will stop wanting things done up for them though!

and the quilt looks like a pretty sharp design - and so involved - I have yet to make a quilt although I did make a patchwork book for someone - I guess that counts as quilting - part crazy quilt part book Grin

I recieved my package from Tasi292, and I am amazed!!!

she sent me TWO bags!

The outsides are black, and they didn't photograph well, so here's pics showing the insides...



They are both sewn really really well, and I am very impressed!!

She also sent me a Hello Kitty backpack and lunchbag:


They are soooo cute!  Thanks so much Tasi292!!!!!

I also recieved from AKredhead, she sent me some really great stationary!  There are all different kinds, and I must admit, when I took the picture, I had already used two cards!

Thanks so much!  I love stationary!!!

I'm really glad you liked everything, superhooker Cheesy  Here are few clearer pics of the bags:

Click for larger pics
These bags were based on ones from her wists found at knitone.com.  Those suckers are $68!!  Definitely one of those things that are "quite-nice-but-I'd-never-pay-that-much-for-something-I-can-make-myself" This is the first one I made, but I wasn't happy with how droopy it was and with the fact that I thought I 'd be clever and add a grommet where yarn could come out.  Then I thought about it and figured that when she put her WIP in the bag there'd be this little stretch of yarn hanging out, not good...
   


So I made another one and sent both 'cause she might actually like the droopy one with the "hole" in it Wink


Comparison shot...


And just because it took me forever to get good pics without these one of these 2 wandering into the shot...

Yay!  Thanks for the better pictures!  The bags are really great, I'm using one right now.  They are the perfect shape, because I'm a pit-knitter, and I like to use the really long knitting needles. 

Tasi292, they are very professional looking!  My husband thought you had bought them for me!
