I am a total sucker for zipper pouches, and these look super fun (and easy) to make. I really love the fabric combos you used, too. Fun fabrics in the lining make a nice surprise when the pouch is opened, too. Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern!

Best of luck! I can only keep pothos alive in the house myself. Outside is another story, our tomato plants are frighteningly vigorous! But inside... well, even spider plants seem to hate me :/.

I never remember to water plants, so I need only the hardiest... and even then, I still manage to kill them eventually Smiley

QueenHobo, I'm so sorry that life has been so sad and difficult for you lately! My heart goes out to you and your family, and it certainly puts my own summer struggles into perspective. I'm glad you had family and friends to help support you while you support your MIL and your own family!

LovelyMiss, I so totally LOVE the prizes- my Craft Hunt item has been in heavy use, and I can't wait to see the prizes for the Level Up categories that I didn't get to finish. I know I will be very jealous that I didn't get them all! And, I love my collection of fabric squares! I've been gathering ideas for scrap projects, and it's so nice to have lovely fabrics from others. I really enjoy looking through them, as gozer mentioned, and seeing the combinations that could have been used in a project.

September totally kicked my butt (because July/August weren't bad enough), and I completely lost my crafty mojo. It seems to be back, and once some (late) swap items reach their destinations, I'll actually have some projects to post!

I have my second casualty (well it's half dead... it had 4 little parts, and two are gone). The fleshy plants seem to dislike my care (or non-care) methods. The 2 in the back are holding on, but the ones in the front are half of what they were... the one in the center was the first to go.

I'm thinking that when I make the one in my house, I'll be using non-succulent, low-light plants, so I might have better luck. I also need to remember to bring in the cover for the one on my desk. They might be drying out too quickly. For a person with a biology degree who planned to go into plant cell culture, I don't have a very green thumb...

bethntim sent me a wonderful swap package (she totally rocked her first swap, and I apologize for the delay in posting... life got a little out of my control).

First she made me a fantastic scarf, with the option to add tassels or chocolate covered strawberries! I think I'm definitely keeping the strawberries, and while she attached them with hook & eye fasteners so I could swap them out, I'm going to stitch them on so I don't lose them.



Next, she made me two hotpads (a strawberry, and a fantastic blueberry pie) and then she learned how to knit (I feel so honored!) to make me some knitted dishcloths (I love dishcloths, and since I can't knit very well, I love to get knitted ones from others), in strawberry and blueberry colored yarns Smiley




And, for the purchased item, she got me a sweet strawberry key chain (in a cute little box), which I will be saving for keys that don't leave the house (like the spare keys to my side door and my back door).



Thanks so much for being such a great swap partner!

I received some amazing patches (no surprise!) Wulf! We agreed on one full size patch and 2 mini filler patches which can be used to cover up some of the gaps that might appear when joining patches together.

Here they are all together:



And here are some closeups...

So much gorgeous stitching on the cholorophyll patch! And, I love how Wulf uses other fabrics besides cotton in his patches.



Next... a microscope mini patch (I love the detail he achieved in such a small space!):



And finally, to celebrate the 10th Round of the Yet Another version of the swap, the element Neon! It has an atomic number of 10 Smiley Perfect choice!




Thanks so much, Wulf, for making me such fabulous patches!

Im still hoping to make this work! If I can hitch a ride from the airport in NC, that would be one problem solved. Im 99% sure I can get to and from the airport here, especially if I can figure out a route that lets me leave right from the airport in town.

I think someone previously mentioned being able to pick up folks from the airport....  Sometime in the last week or two?

That was me. Which airport? Asheville or Charlotte?

It might be less expensive for me to fly to Charlotte, but I have to check Smiley Ill try to do that before the end of the week!
