I've got some squishies to share and some are way overdue thanks to (delayed) sick leave.
I'm sorry :(

Some time back Nines had a giveaway of 6 crocheted doilies. The rules said you had to specify which doily you would like in the comments if you were to win. It just so happened that 6 people entered and they each wanted a different doily. How perfect is that?! Thanks Nines!!!!

Of course I picked the hexie shaped doily :)

I'm a lurker of the smallquilttalk group at yahoo.com and we recently did a swap where I was partnered with Ines in Scottsdale, AZ. She wrote about some pretty hot temps - Yikes - it hasn't been that long since I lived in Miami but those temps sounded stifling. On the other hand she spoke of the beautiful scenery colors! Ines made this very pretty and festive doll quilt using 3D bowties. I haven't quite figured out how they are made but I'm still on it. It was quite the coincidence that the package arrived with the strawberry FQ on the day of our local Strawberry Shortcake Social (a fundraiser to restore our Doughboy statue). The leather covered measuring tape will be put to use in my travelling sewing box as I often forget to take one with me to the LQS.

Last but not least would be my latest gift from my guild Secret Sister. Everything was gently wrapped in the green fabric which matched the green gift bag - we were off to a fun start. The luggage tag also holds a tiny sewing kit - there has got to be a way I can convert it to a hexie kit somehow! BTW - The tag was purchased from a vendor who was at the last/local quilt show. Is that a clue to my sister's identity?! The mouse pin cushion is adorable but I hate to stick pins in him! I don't seem to have the same problem with my chicken pincushion. Weird.

That's it for now...I'm waiting on one more squishy in the mail...

Good mail, Sarah. If I thought the mail truck that just stopped by had brought any such fun, I would be out to my box right now!
BTW, I think I'd rather stick a mouse than a chicken. : )

I'm working on 3-d bowtie blocks between other things.
