August Swaps & a trip

Hi friends!

I'm headed out today on another family trip - feels like we haven't been home much at all this summer! 
So, are there any good quilt shops around Raleigh, or Charlotte, NC or Savannah, GA?  I left room in my suitcase!

On another note: I am so EFFICIENT! It's rare, but sometimes it happens and I have to brag. I'm in another around of NuBees and I was recently accepted into Sewn Together - my first real bee. For the NuBee blocks I stuck with the same style as last month- the Indiana Puzzle

KS Good Fortune & Riley Blake

It's funny, I OFTEN see bloggers showcasing pictures of the recent bee block they've completed and they then admit that the block is "late."  I'm too paranoid of getting kicked out, so I'm on time so far, heh heh. For August, Sorrel requested a "color cluster" block. This is a new one for me and I'm glad she said not to square this sucker up! The scraps are 2.5" and smaller

Hey there! I've spent the better part of today making myself a new iPad case! When I first got my iPad a few months ago, I bought a cause with an integrated keyboard to keep myself from becoming a proficient "pecker," cause I can type already!

Anyway, my keyboard case does not have any storage, so I keep losing things like the charger, card reader, etc.. actually there's no etc, that's all I've got and I've had to buy the crap at least 3 times.

Fresh Lemons to the rescue! I noticed this tutorial because it answers my storage needs.. I got my fabric - a faux corduroy print and kona charcoal and got to work. Tada!

 Notice anything? My pocket liner is jacked up. I took this thing apart twice and put it back together and noticed it was still wrong. The liner is all there, but it's reversed somehow. CRAP!  And it's smiling at me.. I'll have to try it again someday soon, right now I'm too annoyed.. off to find some wine

What would you do? I'm thinking of giving it away as a gift & dare the recipient to complain about the pocket ;-) and more importantly, DOES SEWING MAKE YOU CURSE?

More Swapping

Hey friends!

I just finished up my first month of NuBees .. what fun! Here's what I made for my partners - the pattern is Indian Puzzle. The group is always open and there is a new swap every month.
Riley Blake - Indian Summer

Moda Reunion & Packed Posies

Benartex - Crazy Daisy

A stitch in color & Poetica
And here's what I received

Love em! The differently colored block resulted from my forgetting my original color preferences - OOPS! The August NuBees swap has started and I got all my fabrics together last night, in addition to the 3x6 Sampler Mini Bee - Solids. And I just got my partner assignment for the latest Mini QT Swap... signed up for AND I was just accepted into the Sewn Together Bee... yehaw! Fun!

What's your favorite thing about swapping?
