I saw this banner a couple of days ago...........
....... and what did I do today........... joined the swap. The good thing deadline is January 18th, 2010 - I think this should give me enough time for a mini quilt after I get back home.
HELP - I guess the swap bug cought me!!

Well yeah the pic quality is not the best - but it was in the middle of the night and my light is not the brightest! I think the bag turned out cute, I used brown faux leather for the bottom + handle
Sorry for those lousy pics - but I had to be fast to catch the intruder on a pic so I could report it to the police *lol*.
Well, since autumn has arrived I´m afraid I will have some more of them the next couple of weeks - however they find their way inside.
I felt like Christmas
A letter where Judy told me a little bit about herself
The beautiful friendship bag - I love it. The pink and the flamigos represents defently Florida, the black and white fabric car-racing in Daytona
this little book with great sayings in it, handwritten
some very pretty batics (I love batics)
an adorable wallhanging - beach, ocean and sunset sky - I already feel like I´m in Florida. This wallhanging will get a special place in my sewing-room
christmas-panel with labels on it
This kit for a summer tote of Lazy Girl Designs
a ATC and a very lovely doll
and thats it all in one pic
Judy - thank you so much for the package with all those goodies. You spend so much time and money in making and buying all those pretty things. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU - I defently felt like its already been Christmas.

Thats a mini pincushion I made out of a thimble
the packed up friendship bag
(Somehow I can´t get a good picture of this quilt)
That´s how I fixed my snip in at the backing fabric. Carla came up with the idea to use fabric glue (thanks for the tip) and actually put a label on it - I used a patch of the backing fabric
and I still had the guts to enter this contest - it was good that I havent seen all the beautiful quilts of the contestants before - I would´ve chicken out

I also made a horrible discovery while sewing on the binding - I saw that I have snipped in the backing fabric on accident when I was sewing in the threads from quilting. Ahhhhhh how am I going to fix that?!?!
