Just had to share

I already blogged earlier today but I just had to share what has been going on since this morning. 

I received my postcard from my swap partner Maria in Australia   Isn't it just the cutest!  I love it so much.  Maria has used two of my all-time fav things in the postcard she made...selvedges and snowmen.  Her stitching is just so tiny and perfect .Hope you can tell from the photo. Thanks soooo much Maria.

Here is the postcard that I sent to Maria

She received it safe and sound a few days ago. 

Also, wanted to show what I made from more of Lesley's scraps.  A knitting project bag (or for anything really)  A pieced front with a vinyl see-through insert. 
It has a grommet on the back so your yarn can feed through as you work.  It was a bit of struggle for me to make because I didn't trust the instructions and then I became very frustrated so Retired Hub came to the rescue and figured it out for me.  What a guy!!  Thanks Honey, The next one I make will be a breeze.

  Now to make supper . Canadian Hamburger soup. A family fav for many years.  Great to eat on this cold day. 


  1. Sew nice it arrived and you are happy with it.

    Great bag you made for your yarn.

  2. The post cards are lovely ... I'm in awe over that paper pieced Santa - I cannot paper piece to save my life.
    Your knitting bag looks terrific - I like the idea and those scraps are so nice. Nice of you to share your hamburger soup recipe.

  3. Oh Linda , what fantastic postcards ! Love them both and your knitting bag is a wonderful idea . Will have to try your soup too , great for a cold day like today , thanks for sharing .

  4. Beautiful postcards! You both did so well! Love your knitting bag...looks like you mastered the instructions with Hubby's help. Well done!

  5. love both those postcards... how clever... and a great bag for your yarn.... the little grommet will be useful even if it has been fiddly to put it together....

  6. Maria was my swap partner for the last postcard swap. She made another beauty!! Love that Santa you sent her. How come I can't ever come up with such good ideas? Lesley's scraps are fun to work with and you found the perfect project to use them up. Love it!


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to leave a comment.
