I love your purse! And I love dr Who too!
Sometimes patterns are so confusing, for me it works best if I have an example which I can 'study' or a youtube tutorial. Once you get it, the patter and description makes sense haha  Cheesy

I love the idea of a purse of the month challenge, but like the two of you, I don't need more bags/purses/clutches...  Wink

Great work!!  Smiley

I used to make cards a lot, then I got into sewing and crochet. My lovely partner bought me a Silhouette Cameo and so I'm back into cards (among many other crafts haha)
I filled in I can use my Silhouette and stamping, sewing, handlettering, it is all possible  Cool

So I sent in my questionnaire  Cheesy

Hi Beck!!! *waves* I missed you around here!! Good to 'see' you!  Cheesy

Yay! Let the fun begin!!  Smiley

Your choices of fabric are always spot on! I love it!!  Smiley
It looks like an excellent size bag. I am going to check out that pattern, it looks great!

I'm hitting this rocks!  Cheesy

Of course lining fabric doesn't count haha  Tongue

On the Unicorn. Yes, paper pieced unicorn from http://www.robynie.com/unicorn-pattern/ . Very clear instructions and even though it was many, many pieces, it went together surprisingly quickly and easily. This is only my third paper piecing and the first was a simple test block to learn the technique. I guess my years of graphic design/website/cramming lots into small spaces has done me good. I'm pretty good at spacial visualizing, but paper piecing...working from the back....really gets me confused. Hence the shades of some of the colors didn't end up where I wanted them....as if anyone cares. It turned out quite well despite my own inner expectations.

When I added the beads I never thought of glitter snorts! Just wanted to make the unicorn more dynamic. GLITTER SNORTS!!!! Love it.

Thanks! Will have look over there, I want one too!  Smiley
Pff, paper piecing isn't that hard but yes it is very confusing sometimes haha! I paperpieced the chickens and of course I sewed on pieces the wrong way more than once haha!  Tongue When I really think it over, I get more confused, but not thinking at all doesn't work either.  Roll Eyes
I don't think I could add shades and to me it looks just so awesome!
Yeah, the glitter snorts are just too funny, intended or not!  Wink

That dandelion quilt is beautiful!! Love the text you added with the different elements, so clever and pretty. Amazing work!  Cheesy

That unicorn quilt is amazing!!!  Shocked Wow!
Did you paper piece that?

Lolololol....glitter snorts.....of course a unicorn would have glitter snorts. They are just lttle shades of pink beads. And there is beading around the horn and mane....maybe it's unicorn dandruff.

Haha! LOL! I would love to have snorts and dandruff like that!  Grin

The tree is so pretty! That fabric is chosen perfectly! I love the blues in the placemat too, I love blues (ehh the colour, not the feeling Wink)

I received my MAQ from my lovely partner Immaculata.
She had such a hard time with this quilt. When she embroidered parts of the quilt, that didn't work out and she even had to sew in new hexagons...  Embarrassed She contacted me and our sweet organiser and we agreed she would sent what she had done so far. If I really didn't like it, she offered to sew a new MAQ.

It is pretty and I would have never made me a hexagon quilt myself (I'm more of a handsfree motion, sew on whatever seamstress haha) and I love the theme she chose.
That said, here is my MAQ:

I love all the different parts of the beach: sea, sand, sky and clouds. The hexagons are perfect for this!

ignore the fork, my kids were setting the table for dinner  Tongue

She quilted parts of the sea, the beach and clouds. I love the little grass (I only know the Dutch word: helmgras  Cheesy )

I love the backside fabric too:

The whales are so cute!

I already spoke with Susanne and let her know that I would work on the quilt. I've started already and it is so much fun!
So the way I see it, it is a bonus that I get to work on my own quilt  Cheesy I really appreciate the work she put into it and she tried something new for her, I love that!

Thanks Susanne, I appreciate what you tried and I love my hexagon-quilt. You were brave to try and admit that it didn't work out. I can imagine your frustration working on the quilt, not working out the way you imagined. You did a fab job on the hexagons and I applaud your perseverance (had to google that word haha!)

Dankjewel!  Wink

Wendiek, I designed the cards in the software then uses print and cut.

So cool Lindy!  Thanks for answering  Cheesy

I somehow missed commenting that last package  Huh

grimminspirations Love the doll and the zombie. Did you use fleece? It looks very soft!
That mug is so funny haha! Great pins and so thoughtful to add treats for the dogs! Great package!  Smiley

I love the idea of exchanging human things with our creations...people get empowered when they get to add or take from something because they are allowed to! 

It is like swapping here on Craftster. I love that too!
But if you're not crafty or you believe you're not crafty, I encouraged everyone to exchange for whatever, a book, a cd, I have seen a few different things. The kids exchanged bookmarks, a pretty stone, a drawing. It was a lot of fun!
Maybe it is because they are allowed to, kids really see the world in a different perspective.

Craftylittlemonkey, love that someone draw a shooting star! You should always reach for the stars and believe in heart and soul that you ARE a star!

That handbag is BEAUTIFUL!! I know gozer is an amazing seamstress, you are going to post this in the purses thread right? (Or maybe you already did, haha)

snowyangelThat book is creepy, great work on that! Thanks for the extra pics.
The phases of the moon magnets are fun, so is the kitty frame.

Chr1stChanLove the sky and the ATC's are great! Also handdrawn? I'm always in awe with such a steady hand! Cute little octopus! You're a fast crocheter, that would have taken me ages to finish haha!

I'll post it now and take another look to make sure I haven't forgotten to comment on a swap package!  Smiley DONE! Wink
