Swapping things about

So now one swap is over, time for some more?
Well who could resist the lovely Sarah when she put out the request for swappers back in August ...


so my Festival shopping was very focused ...


the pink has been chopped and sent and now I await the return of a package full of Japanese loveliness!

much like these ...


Thanks to a discount code for Celtic Fusion Fabrics ...



and there may have been a little hopping for this swap too!


this may or may not already be on its way over to Rebbecca Lynne


and whilst I was cutting and sewing up a storm for my BQS3 there was a little more  chopping of this pile of loveliness that has been glaring and quietly whispering ....


so not content with a couple of Charm Swaps, there was a frenzy of activity on Saturday for sign ups for the Mouthy Stitches 2 swap


and as with all making swaps, an inspiration mosaic is required ...


still trying to hold onto the soft warmth of summer as it fades rapidly


another thing that got swapped around, thanks to the antics of yesterday and today, was turning these into jam ... for now they languish in the cold depths of the freezer.  

And thank you all for your concern after my comments yesterday, my mum is fine, we went back to the fracture clinic this morning, they confirmed  a double fracture to her wrist, took the plaster cast off her arm and made her more comfortable and able to cope on her own with a half arm splint instead.  Lets hope there are no more falls in her future  :)  

another day of no sewing, thanks to a dental visit for the Diva that resulted in not having the scheduled filling, and an unscheduled visit to the orthodontist.   I was so glad of a sit down and a cuppa by the time I got home tonight!

Hopefully I'll be back with something productive soon
