Christmas Swap

My Crazy Quilters for Newbies Yahoo Group had a Christmas swap trading supplies. I am a true newbie, I’ve done a few small pieces and I dream of bigger and better things but am not experienced enough to feel comfortable with any of the round robins or swaps where you actually swap your work. I have been mostly accumulating embellishments and fibers to play with and I’ve had a great time doing it. The swap was for supplies and you could even ask for a particular color. I asked for pink and the person who sent me stuff was Karen K from Arizona. She sent me such wonderful stuff…. an abundance of lovely things. I can’t wait to start using everything….I am so excited about the little charms she sent, a sweet little sewing machine and such a tiny cat….buttons ribbon, thread, motifs and fabrics galore. I just love everything and am so blessed to have gotten such a wonderful package to add to my stash.

Thank you Karen for everything…. I love it all!!!

I am so glad I could make your stash grow, especially from one pink lover to another!! You were so easy to gather goodies for since you like pink. Hope you have fun playing. Happy New Year. Karen K

I laughed at your painting the cabinets. Been there, done that. A Black and White Kitchen would be fantastic! I have a little black in every room. It is supposed to make everything more elegant! Have a good week and please, keep me posted IF he paints!!!
