We're off to a great start for the first personal fabric swap in 2007!! CC sent me a bunch of cool black and white fabrics for my quilt-in-the-making stash:
She also included a bunch of swap goodies. Tsk! Tsk! This was supposed to be a fabric swap with 'a little extra' on the side. It sure doesn't seem that way anymore! Check out the crocheted items (a wonderful scarf and a little pouch), buttons, and a bunch of beads with jump rings already attached to them:
Funny thing about that scarf. The other day, a friend commented that I'm always knitting scarves for folks but I never seem to have one. Well, CC's scarf couldn't have arrived at a better time! Here's a close-up:
Thank you kindly, m'dear! I hope you receive your swap package...soon!
If I have a bad crafting year in 2007, it's definitely not due to want for inspiration! During my annual vacation, I picked up a bunch of Japanese craft books AND a Japanese quilting magazine at Kinokuniya!
Freebie Calendar that came with the quilting magazine:
To top it off, I received a copy of Ready Made for Christmas!! Check out the ingenious crafts featured in the book...all which can be made with everyday items!
