Swap Adventures

In my listing of Oct accomplishments, I mentioned that I signed up for a fabric swap and even said in parentheses that I would provided details, but forgot to attach the link. So, here's what I am doing....the Red and White Snowball swap initiated by Nicole from Sister's Choice Quilts, a blog I have read and loved for quite a while now (about a year I guess, because I remember the halloween party costumes from last year!).

I was a little apprehensive about doing a fabric swap because I have heard lots of bad things, from items not received to fabric from Walmart, but I took a deep breath and signed up anyway, and I am so glad I did! I have received all my swap fabric and a couple little bonus items (what fun!). Here are all the fabrics lined up -- I received a couple bonus items in my packages too! The fabrics I sent out are along the left side. I am really looking forward to starting on this quilt when I get my Christmas sewing done.

And, while I was cleaning off my cutting table to lay out all the fabrics from the swap, I ran across my birthday fat quarters from my bee. We gift fat quarters on each person's birthday according to her request, and I asked for oranges this year. Look at these scrumptious fabrics I got -- aren't they great? And, no, I don't know what I am going to use them for!

I love the fabrics you chose to send to your swap partners. Thanks so much. I also am waiting to start my snowballs until after Christmas projects are well on their way. Well, trying to wait!
Thanks again. Debra

Have you started cutting those beautiful fabrics Jennifer? It was hard to dive in and make the first cut, but after that I found myself on a roll. I love this project and hope you will enjoy it too.

Love your fabrics - I'm still waiting for 4 of mine to arrive and itching to get going - I have a day free from work tomorrow and had planned to get started then - I guess I'll have to put it off for a while (and keep rushing home to check whether the postman has been!!)
