I'm Feelin' Crafty was my secret partner in the Modernista Homemade Swap Round 4 (Spicing up the Bedroom) and she made me a pair of superbly sewn pillow cases. The seams on the inside are impeccable! She also sewed me a really cool fabric bowl and included a tape measure and a spool of hand dyed ric rak. Thank you so much! Great swap!!

In the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap on Flickr, my secret partner was sewwunderful. We were sewing mug rugs this round and Lish used the same purple I used in my King King Wonky. She stalked me really well because she also sent me some grape flavoured Jolly Ranchers, Life Savers and Kool Aid - yum!! Lucky me!

I'm a Ginger Monkey Katy sent me some delicious Aurifil from a draw she had in the Impromptu-Along. Thank you me lovely ;) You ROCK! Oh and I may as well just show you a picture of me and Mr Aurifil again....
And maybe one of Katy and I too!!
And back in March I won Kelley's (of Casa Crafty) giveaway for a $30 gift certificate to Buzzmills on Etsy and I finally used my voucher last month! I chose a custom-made shopping tote with a laminated bottom. It arrived just before my holiday and is great - nice and big! Sorry it is so wrinkly in this picture but there was sunshine and daylight so I went for it! The picture shows the inside of the tote as well. Both Jane and I learned a lot from the custom-order process on Etsy (and a few lessons in shipping and customs too!!). Thank you Kelley and Jane, and especially for your patience Jane!

A month ago I received these gorgeous fabrics from Sew Me a Song. I took practically two months to pick them from a giveaway on Alie Makes back in May! I am so happy with my choices - some Flea Market Fancy I just couldn't be without and some yummy text fabric. Lucky me! Thank you Alie and Becca!! Watch this space for a picture of what I make with the yummy text fabric on top!

Well, I think that catches me up on recent swaps and giveaways. I'm busy sewing more swap items and gathering sweet treats for two more (I know, I am addicted to swaps)! I can't wait to see what arrives next!!
Until then, happy sewing!!
