friday night with friends ~ february 2014.....

This Friday night is Friday Night with Friends, hosted by Cheryll here.
I'll be spending my evening with Sue, Tracee and Marg, and sewing along with everyone else who has signed up.
Are you joining in too?

first swap of the year.....


I signed up to take part in the Valentines swap organised by Swap Mama Extraordinaire Cheryll, my first one for the year.

Sue and I were swap partners.  My swap gift from Sue was this lovely bright heart -

with my initial on it -

and my mini for Sue was this one -

Swaps are fun, and I am taking part in several more during the year.  It is a lovely way to connect with people and to give and receive something lovely to keep and display.  I'm looking forward to the other swaps in 2014.

I am officially an OPAMer.....

I've signed up here, to give myself some motivation to get a few projects finished - particularly some smaller ones that have been UFOs for far too long.....
Just in time too, as the sign up has now closed.
Very generously and kindly organised by Peg and Kris, it's a fun way to join in and encourage some likeminded crafty friends and see what they are finishing too, as well as celebrating your own achievements. 
Now to get sewing.....
