eles sweet tweet swap!

Happy Friday Girlies! I'm not on call anymore!! yay! I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend and then a week to get ready to go to the Niagara girls retreat at Niagara on the lake in canada! I'll post about that later in the week.. first I have to show the sweet items from Ele's sweet tweet swap! I was partners with the talented Amy Duff of papertrails. Amy told me she had a thing for red gingham and black toile. (spelled right??) anyways, so I decided to make her this little birdie pinkeep!

I also sent her some wonderful birdie stamps and some M& Ms. I was thinking there was something else too.. but maybe not, I cant remember!

Then the very sweet Amy sent me a box full of wonderfulness. She made me the sweetest little birdie in a bird cage and send me little needle felted balls, that you know I will use for something special.

She also sent this cute little bird to sit on the side of a plant and a copy of somersets Love edition. and also the cutest pink and brown kitchen towel sweet roll! Thank you soo much Amy.. and Ele, this was a fun swap!
While I'm at it, I want to show you the little ornaments I'm making for a special patriotic swap that I'm doing with a very talented group of women. i probably shouldnt post the pictures yet, but I cant help myself sometimes!

And a little closer peek...

And a whole bunch of them....

I had a ball making these. I'm not, sure, but I do think that all my swaps are done! now I need to work on my softie for the niagara trip, and the little somethings that I'm making for all the girls who are going.
I also just got an order for 12 memory bears. I want to try to get those finished by the end of the month. And I still have my quilt to work on!
So yay for the weekend!! tonight i'm off with a couple friends to go see my daughter Jennifer in the musical nunsense. Maybe I will be able to video a little piece to show you!
be back later!
Happy Happy Friday !!!
