hello all..

well i had a fairly productive week this week.. i managed to complete the lizzie-kate christmas flip-it.. this was so much fun to do.. she has a new one coming out for this year that will be out soon..

and i finished the peppermint twist cross stitch as well..

and the last set of the native placemats..

i also sent a mini quilt to trish.. in australia.. it has the colours she loves in it.. and a summery feel to it.. she said it's perfect and she loves it... we're gonna be partners again for the autumn mini swap too.. this is the quilt i made for her..

and the back of it... i loved this butterfly fabric.. and i have a bit left that i'm hoping to make into a miranda bag..

and this gorgeous mini is the one she made for me... isn't it just darling??!!... i love it!!..

that's about it for this week.. i have lots to work on this coming week so .. hopefully i'll have something to show next week too..

finally some pictures..

i'm finally on the laptop.. so now maybe i can at least show y'all a little of what i've working on lately..

first of all.. some cross stitch..

this is Peppermint Twist.. and i'm almost done.. yay!!.. just a little backstitching... a few more trees and the date and my intials and i can put this baby to bed!!..

next is.. lizzie kates Halloween flip it.. i loved doing this one!.. it was sooo much fun... i changed it a bit.. i wanted the colours more vibrant so i used crescent colours... and chose to put it on a raw opalescent fabric.. it came out really cute.. i just need to figure out how i want to do the bottom area....

i finished off my mini quilt for trish.. (Kentucky_Sunshine) for the HGTV mini quilt swap and dropped that in the mail yesterday.. but i can't post a picture of that till i know she's recieved it.. (i will soon).. it did come out kinda cute tho.. and.. she's agreed to continue to be my partner in future mini swaps.. :) .. so the next one will be an Autumn one.. it should be fun!!.. i also finished piecing my CQ block for the one block swap for edna ... now i get to start the embellishing..

lets see what else... ohhhh my placemats.. here are a couple of them... i've got 2 different native fabrics i'm working with.. these are the tops... i just got the fabric for the backing in the mail today.. so that's in the wash.. i'll show you them completed in another post..

and finally for this post... my sister's shabby chic quilt.. this is just the top.. i've just started working on the borders..

ok.. that's a start... i have lots of other things i'm working on .. but i'll save those for another post...
