Another Stitcher's Angel Project, fabric and a gift!!

Today, I finally finished my Charming Bed Pocket for the Stitcher's Angel Swap. I hope my secret partner likes it. It was my first time doing this kind of project, with the coloring and then making a ruffle. Yep! This is the first time that I successfully make a ruffle. I was all proud of myself. I'm getting better at sewing. Yeah!

I also received some fabric. I ordered some Mezzanine from the Patty Young collection. I bought from two different fabric stores online; Flair for Fabric and Pink Panda Fabrics. I love these two Canadian stores. Fast delivery for both and great prices for modern designer quilting cottons.

I also received a wonderful gift in the mail today. I won Mother's Cupboard giveaway a few weeks ago. She was celebrating the launch of the new blog Among the Gum Trees. Both of these blogs are wonderful and you should check it out. Thanks you so much Fiona for the wonderful stitchery kit. I can't wait to get started.
 If you've been wondering why I haven't been blogging as much, it's because my three kids and my husband all had the flu last week. The kids were home for the whole week sick. Lots of sleepless nights. Plus, I worked the entire week. I was like a walking zombie. I guess it suits the season. I should have just added a bit of zombie make-up. Well, they are all better now. Just a bit of lingering coughs. I hope you are all avoiding the flu this season. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, because I'm the only one who hasn't gotten it yet. Tomorrow I'll be working on sewing a Halloween costume for my daughter. Let's hope it goes well. I'm not that confident sewing clothing yet.

Happy Stitching!

Hugs Ariane

Hi Ariane! I love the fabrics and your ruffle looks great! I stink at those so I bought a ruffler foot for my machine! I will be sewing DD's halloween costume tomorrow also - even at 18 they still want mom to make a costume! Hope your family is feeling better and you stay healthy! Oh, and I got a notice in the mailbox today that I have a package so I will be going to the post office tomorrow and while I am there I will be sending a package to you!
