Why do I love letter and words that hang on the wall? I am in love with the Welcome sign, the Olive sign, and even the random letters that spell Sew and I don't even know what they were meant to do!

I plan to finally post pictures of my package today. I have to run to my sister's for camera assistance, but today is the day Smiley

Here's some of the stuff that I sent to rira. The pictures are terrible quality, but you can get the general idea!
I made her some grocery bags that folded into their own pockets. This one is a singlet style & has an applique of a jug of milk on it.

And some coasters which were inspired from some scrabble pillows on her wists:

and a few reusable produce bags:

and a windsock-like contraption for holding plastic bags. Her kitchen has an Italian chef theme. I didn't have an Italian chef fabric, but I DID have some vintage Campbells soup girls and I thought were too cute not to use.

I am so bummed that the frames broke Sad  I tried to wrap them up in the bubble wrap but apparently the mail man did kick it all the way there.  I am so sorry.  The birdie is acctually a wall hanging to match the pillowcases.  Cheesy  I am glad you liked everything.

The packages are GREAT!  I love the Olive name board.  I'm going to have to borrow that idea for my DD.

With huge apologies to colorado deb for the delay in posting pix, I present the best craft package ever! I adore this, it lives on my bed and brings sunshine into the grey wet autumn days that we are having here in Ireland. I absolutely adore this quilt, and its very well made and very well finished.

prepare to be impressed and jealous in equal measure.

Its lovely and big and fits my bed perfectly,

this is another view

I adore colour, but because we have to grab every bit of light we can in this country, the walls are all white, so the quilt works so well with the room and brings in sunshine!

this shows all the fabulous fabrics, i love each and every piece of fabric. and the colours are great together


If you look closely at this picture you can see that not only is it perfectly pieced and finished, but it is quilted with wonderful swirly patterns, I love quilting!


and finally, although it lives on my bed it often wanders the house in this way..


thank you so much again Deb, you were an amazing partner
