swap - check, QAL - check, hex-love - check

I have packed up my goodies for my super-crafty swap partner - I can't wait to see if she likes everything...and truth be told - I'm pretty excited about getting some goodies too. I'll be stalking the mail box this week.

I've also been continuing to have hexie fun. I love this little gnome in the middle. This is an experimental pin cushion - I'm trying out a few things for my pin cushion swap, while I wait for a couple of cute little pins to arrive. The hand sewn close on this one is kind of sucky - but it's so cute otherwise - I guess I'm happy to have to keep it. I stuffed it with crushed walnuts - some lizard litter from the pet store - whodathunk?

I have also caught up on all of the cutting for the QAL over at crazymomquilts - I am excited to have kind of a mystery quilt forming - using up some coveted fabric, and hopefully getting a quilt out of it, I hope I can manage to keep up.

Last up - if you are looking for a sangria recipe - and trying to watch the calories - I have made up a batch of this one (scroll down) for my daughter's 5th birthday party tomorrow - for the adults of course - and it's quite tasty - but be careful, it's a slippery slope if you eat all of the booze-soaked fruit, never good to fall asleep at your daughter's birthday party. Just sayin.

Love the litte gnome. Don't the walnuts get oily? I'm curious.

Happy Birthday to little Peaknit. Hope her day is fab.

I got the package today. Thank you sooo much! The toadstool pin cushion is so stinkin' cute, those pics don't do it justice :-) And I love the needle holder, the hedgehogs make it!

It is a very inspiring package indeed, and I'm hoping with my kids out of town this week, that I'll be able to get some stuff made! Even if it's just a page or two, or maybe a mini album.

Thank you so much, I love it!

PS I also love the drink recipes you posted, will be making that slushy rum punch this weekend :-)
