Do you want to use your creative Brain

Well if you want to be creative here a place you can be.

Hi are you looking for another swap. Well I said no more swaps I so busy now and can not think about having another one. Well if you saw the Halloween swap that was around that Jane put together it was the best swap that I have been in. I'm new with swapping and I have not always had the best experience with it. I have to say that I wanted to be in Halloween swap and wanted to make sure I had enough for 2 quilts well I join 3 times and when I got my blocks I have to say I'm having a hard time deciding what ones to use they were that good.

Well now there a Christmas swap at and its done the same way as Jane's was. Here Jane's blog to check out the blocks that were done I can't get the web site but here the info hopfully you will be able to find it.THE SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN THEME BLOCK SWAP 2009 from Jane's Fabrics
You can do what ever you want to do very few rules but you will not have to have it done till I think it was Jan 15. So it will not be done for this year but next year we can have the quilts done ahead of time.
I have to say I'm so excited about this swap that I have joined 5 times so if there enough of us I will be able to have 5 quilts. I'm planing one for me my sister another gift to be decided who and possible 2 for church raffles.This is how excited I am with this kind od swap. You can see the block that I did in my past blog. I'm not a great blogger because I hate the compurter.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO please think about joining because I KNOW you will enjoy it a great deal.

Halloween Swap

Well I just finished my Halloween swap and I took the photos from Jane's Fabrics and Quilts. Jane put together a wonderful swap. I have to say it was absolutely the best swap I have been in and if you ever get to be in a swap that she has put together you will love it.

So if I do it correct you are going to see the blocks I have have done.

Yes I got in 2 times in 1 group and decided this was not enough so I joined another group so I had 3 theme blocks of 12 to do and 3 different 9 square blocks of 12 each. I was busy but I also ran into a few problems. So I had to keep emailing Jane for help but I have to say she would always help me out.

So here are the photos of my blocks .

First quilt

I was asked to post some photos of my quilts. So now I can download photos so I going to start. Oct. 2008 I took my first quilting class and this is my first quilt that I made. I think it took 2 classes to finish it. She called it the 9 square block but now from the blog I hear its called the disappearing 9 block. Its small the size is 28 by 34. The quilting was stitching in the ditch. Also for my first one my back fabric is plain black I was afraid to do anything but plain. That has now change. Seeing its my first one I was so pleased. I don't have that many so I will do one at the time

Pay it forward

I got this from the web and am passing it along here. It’s sort of a way to pass on joy with crafty goodness. Here are the rules:
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week… LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
What you do: Leave a comment here. The first three to say they are participating in paying it forward I’ll send a gift to. Then they go to their blog and have three friends sign up to participate. Everyone ends up with three cool gifts in exchange for their three they send out!
Interested? Leave me a comment!

Hello all

I'm a manicurist by day and a quilter and crafter by night. I have a wonderful cat named Chiclet. She was a stay cat that was dropped off where I worked at. A coworker talked me into taking her home ever tho I did not care for cats. This little girl came into my life and it has not been the same. As someone that always wanted children and this never did happen the Chiclet was the next best thing. To have someone love you unconditional. So her we are in Windsor Ontario Canada till the next posting have a great day
