Swap mania! ...And some other things:-)

Oh boy I have a lot to show you!

When I made the napkins for Table Top Swap 1, Nanette contacted me and asked if we could have a sideswap.
I said yes right away, because I have been following her photostream in Flickr for a long time, and I admire everything she makes.
I made her these napkins, kind of the same style as the other ones I made, but still very different.
She got them yesterday, so now I can show them to you:-)

Next up is the RATZ swap magnets I made!
I had so much fun with these, and I am happy to say that my swap partner loved them!
I think I might make some of these for my self as well...

I also made a mini quilt for a swap a while ago, and my partner got it, so here it is:

This was my first ever paper pieced project, and I am very happy with the end result, It was much easier to paper piece than I thought it would be.

This was an open swap, so the person i sent to, also sent to me.
I LOVE the quilt I got!
Look at this beauty:

If you read this Jen, thank you so so much.

She also sent along beautiful extras:

I think I have to make two blog posts about all the swapping and other stuff, so I'll see you tomorrow!
Have a nice weekend:-)

I hope my swap partner will love it too.

A very busy weekend!

I had a very busy weekend, with lots of things happening. Good tings!
Friday I finished this:

A detail:

I kept the quilting very simple, just straight lines on the diagonal.

The top of this quilt was made a couple of years ago, and then it got stuck in the pile of UFO's.
But I needed a gift for a family member this weekend, so it finally got finished!

Here are the recipient with his lap quilt, I think he likes it...

I also went to plant in Hennings garden this week, and I'm so happy with the result. I think it's pretty!
Nice roses and lots of candles and some cute little figures...

I have setteled with the fact that Henning is not with us, so I try to keep his garden as nice as I can. We go there very often to light candles and keep it pretty.
If you look closely, you can see the little propeller bird and the elf I put there, I love them:-) They are cheerful, and I need to have something happy in this little garden.
Henning will never be forgotten, and we are happy we had him, even if we could not have him with us. I know that some day, we will meet him again.

At last, I'll leave you with a nice little kitty picture, this is my aunt's Maine Coon, Lusi.
Such a beautiful cat, with lots of personality.
I hope your week will be good!

Thank you for reading:-)
