Sew Sew Modern 4 Swap Complete!

This was a super fun swap. It’s run out of Flickr, using the groups feature.

I received an awesome package from my friend Linda in the Netherlands!! As you can see, she included a few things for my kids and my husband as well.

She was so generous!! As soon as my sewing room is painted and I have a spot, I will be hanging this gorgeous mini up in there for sure!

For my part, I made a SuperTote by Noodlehead. I have made this bag multiple times and I love it each time!! I included some goodies in her package, but forgot to take a pic of the whole thing. It was also my first time making a English Paper Pieced hexie flower, and appliqueing! I thought it turned out very well. I used Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics and some Lizzy House mice, and Essex yarn dyed in Steel. They all looked great together, I thought!

Back in the Groove..

And everything hurts. Full body strength class Friday, Saturday I ran 3 miles outside (which felt like 6 with the 27 mph winds!), and then shoveled the driveway. I will be glad when shoveling does not count as one of my workouts.

Yesterday evening the kids and I went to a birthday part at a bouncy place, and it was crazy.

Today I will be getting all my things for my Sew Sew Modern 4 swap partner, as well as for a special friend’s bag who starts chemo next week, and going to the grocery store. Meal planning is done! I always have a better week when I’ve meal planned and grocery shopped in advance. Makes the evenings go much smoother!

Stay tuned for progress pics! Stay warm, and have a great week.

What workouts do you have planned for the week?
