Git'er Done

That's what I've been saying for a few weeks. I had a lot of swaps to catch up on and a few baby things to make. My swaps are done. Whew! Now I have yet to finish 2 shirts for hubby and burp cloths and bibs for Anna Grace. Starting to breath a little easier. Can't wait to have time for blogging again.

Here is one of 2 Brown Thrashers from the other day. One was found across the street so we brought it to the back yard to be next to sibling. Parents fed the sibling but ignored this one. An hour later it had disappeared. Poor thing.

My favorite bird. Hummingbird.

This is a pincushion that goes with the bag below. It was a swap to the United Kingdom.

Here is a bag I just finished for my daughter Rhonda. It's called the Professional Bag. Very large, middle zipper pocket plus 5 other pockets inside and 5 pockets outside. I've never broken so many needles on one project before. It's about 14 inches tall and 18 inches wide.

These are 4 coasters and some brown and pink fabric for a make a wish swap.
