Am I a nut? I keep fondling my coaster admiring the tiny scraps and stitching.

oh - the nuttiest of nuts!!

But thats what I did (and do) to the taggie you sent me Smiley

Oh - btw I hand sewed everything as it's easier to do that with the boys around - I can pick up, do half a seam, and put down again, and have even managed a few stitches with toddler sat on knee! Can't do that with the sewing machine Smiley
And the floss I used to 'quilt' the coaster and mugrug carry on the 'scrappy' theme - they were all 'leftovers' from other projects Smiley

I think a lot more people are finding that hand sewing can be relaxing and practical...I love the holidays because I make a lot of hand sewn ornaments and gifts...

lovely stitching also adds to the pieces, I think...good for using leftovers!  Scrappy, indeed!

...once again, I am saying that mugrugs are my new best friend...I love them and to have a scrappy one would make anyone happy!

... how interesting ... Wink

Lots more gorgeousness in here to look at! The reversible bag is awesome, and the sewing machine pincushion is a great idea Smiley The Christmas ornaments are fab (would love to see a close up), and the scrappy tote is cute Smiley  Sorry if I've missed someone's parcel out - EVERY package in this gallery is thoughtful and lovely.

I hope my package arrives soon! getting excited now Cheesy

 Shocked Kiss

I keep having nightmares of some customs person not believing it is your "birthday", jemimah, and tearing the entire box open....Wink

I marked it as a gift...it should arrive soon...per my postmaster, 6-10 days, so let's hope for the 6 days and you get it tomorrow! (I bet they mean business days...grrrr)

i have been enjoying this gallery but i have not posted in like 4 days and it is time!!

I love cabaute's package to StickerChic87! That necklace is super and will go with anything. cabaute, how did you join the ends? a major job on that wallet--beautifully crafted. gorgeous fabric and same on the needlebook--all awesome!

great craftings from love2teach! i know what you mean about corduroy, Sandroo. I've always thought it was interesting how you can hear corduroy Cheesy that soft of cckkk ckkk sound. yummy in a potholder and love that crocheted bag--beautiful! Wow that you just winged the design.

very nice scrappiness from cxcaitlyn! I really like the shape of the zippered pouch and all those fabrics. card case is so cheery-- i like it inside and out! yummy extras--those sound pretty exotic!

wow on the mug rug and ornaments , muddy 21! Like where on earth do you find those fabrics--tho that's not saying I'd ever have your eye! those ornaments are like sooo sweet! ditto on what mini_mum says: TUTE!

Yep, Abbeyrd83 is a spoiler, cxcaitlyn. Amazing tote! I just love the scrappiness here. GREAT pot holder.  This show that argyle can be cute-- i love what you selected here. Nice cat and nice cat toy. are those peppermint socks??

niiice tote, Waterbaby. 4-in-1 for sure. I love the scrappy purple side, the multi side is exciting. I like the pennant side, too--clever patching there.  very nice tissue holder--bolder than most which is cool. nice FQs and yum on truffles.

so much scrappiness from mini_mum! I love the nautical fabric--what are those two things--am I dense for not knowing?  Tongue the sewing machine pin cushion is an AWESOME idea! very very clever! Tongue GREAT scrappiness mug rug--very nice.

Well - it might not be her birthday, but it is a gift! Here's hoping for quick delivery!

susanab - the 2 things are a coaster to match the mug rug :p and?? not sure, the silver things? bought napkins.

I love the sewing machine pin cushion too - wanted something else to send, and stubbled on the idea, as you do, and jumped on it - had it made the same evening Smiley still not done mine though (always the way isn't it!)

ha ha --we do tend to make stuff for others before we even make them for ourselves!

I made the first 10 things on the 50 projects lists things I need or want!!!  I listed a sewing machine pincushion...also, as much as I knit and crochet, I still do not have a proper bag...it is shameful, right? Cheesy

I think we need another: one for you/one for me swap---you have to make two of whatever you and your partner decide...one to keep, one to give! Cheesy

Okay, I have four Shocked parcels to reply to:

  • Lovely mug rug and those Christmas ornaments, well they are awesome!
  • The scrappy potholder and the bag are great, the owls are so cute!
  • The tissueholder is so bright and nice.`But the reversible bag with 4 different sides, super!
  • AND then the nautical mug rug, coasters and sewing machine pincushion are terrific! Agree with all the others that having a sewing machine pincushion is essential if you don't want the pins to end up, well about everywhere!

Well done all!  Smiley All so different and just great!
No cats BTW, except for the cat of cxcaitlyn, that is!  Wink


Update: I like the idea of one for you, one for me swap, Alwaysinmyroom! It is the story of my life, hahaha!
