Swaps

No sewing at all…

…Ok…hardly nothing at all… I managed another finish from my class with Leanne Beasley last year… finally…think I stitched it within 3 days….and took several months to finish… yikkees… …this never happends to you…or … 😉
Hope I´m not the only one!!!
…otherwise…NO SEWING!!!…
…just a lot of sighing and…not really in mood for any creative…
But I long for it!!!

Had one of my brighter moments the other day… You all know my daughter Linda moved home for a month…and with her a lot of old furniture…some was going to be dumped…but I got an idea!! Had one desk upstairs…not practical at all…just laying things on it…
And Linda had a bookshelf in two parts…I took the part under and sawed off the legs and put the two pieces together … and… TADA!!!
A new workspace for me… 🙂

…I love it… think it will work just fine… the best of all…more storage!!
Don´t you just love my holder for cutters and scissors!!! 🙂
…I´m pretty impressed of myself…
..and DH thought I was out of my mind…he said…it won´t work…you just never fix sawing those legs even…HAH…I did!!

And so my Cup Cakes have travelled the ocean to Linda in USA…
I must say this Swap have been so fun… I want to thank Sharon who came up with the idea and organized it…
I have found a fantastic new friend “over there”…it have been so fun making these cup cakes and teasing Linda with tiny tiny pictures …I will miss that… 😉

And thankyou all who left comments on Lindas blog…guess what…
more tears from me… but happy tears… :L

…I´m still waiting for my cupcakes from Linda to arrive…she sent them a day earlier than me… but no sign for them yet…hope for next week…

…And talking about waiting…check this out
I really hope for this to arrive soon…
It´s incredible… Israel… :#
So POSTMAN….deliver me some goodies next week!!!
Waiting for my Four Seasons Quilt to turn up too…
