Lil Penguin turns 6


Over the weekend Lil Penguin turned 6. We had a Star Wars themed party to celebrate.

Lil Penguin helped decorate the top of his cake. He wanted an epic battle to be going on and I think he wanted to make sure I did it right!

He had a wonderful party with his friends and got “awesome” presents, including the t-shirt that I made him. He declared it ” the best party ever” and I felt like I got the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.


Summer Swap Wrap Up


Hello, Friends!

I have so much to share with you today. I have had a lot of projects up in the air over the last few weeks. So, I’ll start with only the completed ones. First up is the Scrappy Mug Rug swap.

I created this pear themed mug rug for my first international partner. I did a lot of embroidery and I hand quilted around the pears. I turned out exactly liked I had envisioned and it was really hard to mail.

I received this mug rug from my partner.

I was thrilled that she made me a Union Jack. I guess having 3 different ones in my mosaic gave her enough of a hint!

For the RATZ Swap, our project was name tags. Ironically I wound up with the same partner I had for the mug rug swap. So I was able to mail them together and save on shipping!

I chose two of her favorite colors to create this patchwork name tag. It came together really quick and was fun to make.

Now, I’m off to work on the Scrappy Bits Swap.

Happy Sewing!
