Just for Me

Life has been so crazy the last few weeks that this afternoon I just had to sit down and make something for ME!
Some of you probubly know that I have been teaching myself how to crochet the past year or so.  I keep seeing these cute coin purses online, but could never figure out how to make them.  Today I found a tutorial on this
Not sure what I will use it for, but I love little bags, so I will find some useful job for it.
First I crocheted a 6 inch circle, then made the lining and put the zipper in.
You can find the tutorial for the circle on the Attic24 blog.  That is the blog that really made me sit down and make myself learn how to crochet, because her stuff is so beautiful!

Look Who Arrived......

In my last post I shared with you the Quiltie Pal that I sent off to my secret partner.  On Tuesday I received Flossie the Flamingo!!!
She came from Susan, aka FlossieBlossoms.  Check out her blog here.
Susan also sent some awesome green batiks and a cute card.
Flossie the Flamingo has sat on the deck by the pool and eaten sea grapes.
And got to meet a few of my potcakes who were very excited to see her.
Flossie is a quilt, with the three layers, in the shape of a flamingo with legs.  Pretty amazing work!
I love her and she will hang in my sewing room unless she is out on an adventure with me.

Trying to get back on track........

WOW!!! Can't believe how long it has been since I blogged last!!  My life spun slightly out of control, but I think I am getting back into the *normal* (whatever that is!) swing of things.
Last week I was supposed to send out some swaps, and I was behind on that ........
Wanted to tell you about one of them.  It is called "Quiltie Pal Swap".  Each person in the swap makes a flat quiltie pal, takes it to various locations to take pictures, then sends it off to a secret partner.
My pal is Goombay the Bahama Turtle.
Goombay is a street festival that they have in the Bahamas, and it is also the local soda that is pineapple flavored.....YUM!
First Goombay was in the sea grape trees looking for sea grapes with Trooper, my number one helper!
Then it was off to the vet for her shots to travel, since she is going abroad!
Then a final look at the harbour, here in Marsh Harbour, before her journey begins.

I haven't received my quiltie pal yet.....maybe this week!
Off to continue catching up on my life :)
Have a great week!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Just a really quick post's my 38th birthday today....I'm a firecracker baby!
Yesterday I had margaritas with some girlfriends, which was nice because it had been a stressful week, finding out about a friends cancer diagnosis.  Puts life in a different perspective!
I am also taking a photography e-course thru
Yesterday's theme was centered and here is my picture:
This dog, Lucky, always wants to be the center of attention, but I love his big wet nose in the center!
The day before was "Splash"
Been having lots of fun using the manual settings on my camera.
Later we will have dinner with friends and family and watch the fireworks!
Be back in a few days to show you some awesome swap stuff I got in the mail.
Happy 4th of July!
