First Thing....

Well, here's the first thing made in my new craft room ~ a 5x5" art square.  It's one of five that I'm working on for a swap hosted by Jillayne of A Fine Seam.  There are sixteen women participating and each of us will contribute 5 squares. Then Jillayne will mail back 5 squares from 5 different women to each of us.  I can't wait to receive mine!  There are some wonderfully talented women participating in this including my blogland friend Diane Knott.  I used some of her pretty stamped muslin on the lower half of this piece.  She sells it in her Etsy shop...mine came wrapped on a clothespin. So sweet!
I'll be finishing them up this weekend so I can mail them to Jillayne before Sept 1st.


Remember to click the photo to make it BIG!

Good Morning, Marie. I just adore that sweet piece you made. And C'mas IS just around the corner! I'll have to check out Diane's Etsy Shop.

Wish I'd known about Jillayne's swap. Of all the different types of swaps I've done in the past, I've never participated in a quilting/fabric one. Can't wait to see what goodies you get from that one!

I love your art square! I can't wait to see what you receive. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am hoping the weekend is at least half as nice as the past few days have been. Couldn't believe we actually slept with the windows opened last night.

*hugs*
