    There is a new little page on my blog titled "bartering" and wanted to extend the invitation. :o) I am looking to trade fabric scraps for quality handcrafted jewelry. :o)

  12. Your runner is just too cute! The little birds in the centers of the Dresden Plates was a stroke of genius. A great way to combine two projects into something lovely.

  16. Penny, I have been looking over your blog and you do fabulous work. I am working on the July challenge. Hope to have mine finished by Thursday. Love your cathedral windows too. I bet Rae Ann would love to have to do a post on the Stash Manicure blog since it uses scraps.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
