For this swap we are to make a zippy pouch for our secret partner and fill it with yummy scraps of fabric. The idea is to "stalk" your partner via flickr, blogs etc, to get a good feel for what they might like. This is what I made for my partner...I have no idea if she'll like it as she seems to have dissapeared from the swap!
The second swap I am doing is called For The Love of Solids, and I am really stumped on this one! There is some amzing talent in this swap and if truth be told I keep on second guessing myself and can't make up my mind what to do.
I am going to make a wall hanging, which I've never done before, but the question is, what type? Modern, applique, artsy....too many choices! My partner, is an artsy girl with a love of nature, and I was toying with the idea of making a wall hanging inspired by the art of Charley Harper. I really need to get my skates on, as the deadline is drawing near!! Wish me luck!
Finally, I also have to make February's block for the PIece Bee With You bee. This month's theme is aquatic creatures (of the tropical variety) and I still need to design my block and piece it together. By the way, I am loving this bee! It is a paper piecing bee, with a different theme every month, and there have been some really cool blocks made. My months coming up in June, so I am still thinking about what I'd like as a theme.
These are the blocks I have made so far:
October: Girls In Dresses
November: Orange and aqua Flying geese in a circle
January: Mid Century Design objects
So maybe it's time to turn off the computer and start sewing!
