happy friday!

Packages are in the mail!

Meant to post this yesterday, but five Patterns and Postcards swaps are on their way! This has been a really rough week, so i haven't been able to post or sew much at all. Hope everyone enjoys their patterns and i can't wait to see what you make! Please let me know when you make something with any of the patterns because i'd love to see and i'll link to it!

look i made a map, thanks google!

Also i got my first swap item! Not a pattern, but I loved the sewing word clouds that Stephanie at thepetitesewist did last Friday…

Compliments of Stephanie, thepetitesewist

So cool, right! She sent me larger copies that i can  print and frame! I've seen word clouds before, but hadn't seen one done in a sewing machine shape. I'm very excited because this will look great in my little sewing room. yes, i'm slowing taking over the middle bedroom of our house. 

now if only i could spend more quality time in my little sewing room! luckily it's now football season. and i'm not a big football fan. (i just don't get into it, sorry!) i usually just snack on the food (somehow they can't watch the game without a bunch of snacks) and then i fall alseep on the couch. so now my husband can watch football with his buddies and i have an excuse: "i really need to work on my sewing project." =)
