Bag Swap

These are the fabrics that I have chosen for my bag swap. I hope that my recipient likes them as much as I do. I have been playing around with these fabrics for a couple of weeks now and I'm at the point now where I have to actually knuckle down and sew the bag. The first day you can send your bag is coming up in the next couple of days. I have formulated my ideas now and am looking forward to puting the bag together.


This gives you some idea of where I am going. I have been busy making suffolk puffs. Miss 11 is quite adament that I must call them suffolk puffs. She says I must'nt refer to them as yoyos at all. I'm not sure why. I don't know the history of the two names, maybe someone can enlighten me?

Okay, I know the pictures are not all at the same level (a little job for tomorrow), but Bradley has put up my pictures in our bedroom. Green is just so great! These pictures have totally changed the feeling of our room. Not sure what I will accomplish this week. My bag swap bag finished and posted. Some curtains made. A giveaway to celebrate my 200th post. Some stitching for my angel stitching swap. And coughing. Lots of coughing! (I brought home a virus from our trip away. I guess I just can't resist a souvenier!) I have been sick for about a week now and there's no sign of abatement! Hope you all have a really great week!

Love the gorgeous fabrics you are using in your bag swap - can't wait to see what you have planned!! I haven't heard of yoyo's referred to as Suffolk Puffs before.

Oh Kris - those fabrics are orgasmic (LOL). Now you must get better soon - down here there are MANY nasty viruses going around - a girl friend still has her cough six weeks later - ARGH!

Oh, I know just how you feel because I've got a bad cold right now too. crazy me keeps staying up way to late so I don't get enough sleep and I'm not getting any better.
Anyway, I really like the green pictures. I painted most of the walls in my house green because it's such a relaxing color!
I showed the pictures of the pokemon to Sarah and she definitely LOVED them!
