Embroidery Fabric

A Fantastic Package

Rose Bag

Happy Friday Ya’ll!–I apologize for my slightly wrinkly picture!  I’ve been wanting to share this with you and I just couldn’t take the time to iron before snapping the pictures. =)  After running up to the school twice this morning before 9am–my time has gotten away from me.  How ironic is it that the girls and I left the house early this morning to pick up cans of food to drop off at the school for Share-A-Christmas only to realize that Chloe had forgotten her lunch at home. =p  So after running that back up to the school, my morning started a bit later than I had planned.

So, enough of that…let’s talk bloggy friends.  Do you remember this post where I was talking about some Winter stitching I would have loved to start–namely the Moda Tote given away at Fall Market.

There's no place like Moda

Well, not long after I shared that I would love to have one of those totes, Melissa of Happy Quilting contacted me to see if I might be interested in an extra tote that she had…say, what!  I was so excited to read that email!–We decided to do up a little swap for each other.  And I received this package of goodness last week:

Swap Package

Melissa totally rocked this swap package!  As I opened the package, I was thrilled with the tote and then I pulled out the book(It’s Modern Baby), then I delved a little bit further and there were the mini charms(and such good ones!), and then a charm pack.

And the tote even included all of the Aurifil embroidery floss and needles to complete the stitching.  The one side of the bag has the roses stitchery and the other side says, “There’s no Place like Moda”.

Goodies

It was such a wonderful swap package to receive and I love every bit of it!  If you want to see what I sent over to Melissa, you can read about her swap package in this post.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  • brilliant package and I love that rose!

    • It’s so pretty!–I agree!

  • This stitching project is right up my alley too! I love the floss colors. If I had that I would be working on it today — gloomy and rainy is perfect hand stitching weather. Instead I will be working on holiday papercrafting and hope to get to some holiday sewing tomorrow!

    • I hope you were able to get that holiday sewing in Karen!–My weekend almost got away from me without one stitch of sewing. I did manage to sew up a fun little project on Saturday morning though. =)
