Make Mine Modern Swap — Received!

Posted on August 18th, by Amy in Swap. 17 comments

Yesterday was a great mail day!  After shipping off my swap items, I was prepared to sit back and wait a  week or more to have anything show up at my door.  Thankfully I didn’t have to wait long for this one!

The goal for this swap is to make something for your “sewing room”, and swap a bundle of  1 1/2 yards of  fabric.  I say “sewing room” because you all have seen where I sew!   As I filled out the questionerre to participate in the swap, I of course mentioned that I sew at the kitchen table, and that most of my sewing space is very portable, and quickly dis-assembled.

 Kiza made me a portable ironing surface – so perfect!  I’ve used a towel on different surfaces in the past, just to avoid dragging the ironing board out (again) and this will see lots of use!  There’s also a cute snap pouch, stitchery, chocolate and a stack of Monica’s Happy Mochi Yum, Yum.   Fabric I’ve wanted but haven’t splurged on yet!

Are you itching to join a swap yet?

Happy sewing ~ Amy

    I joined one scrap swap just as I had started quilting and it did not go well. I really didn’t have any quilting fabric to speak of and neither did my partner so neither of us got what we wanted.

    I’ve started building a stash but still, not enough to share in a swap. ;D

    How wonderful.

    I could use a portable ironing table myself – my ironing board has lived in my sewing room since May! In fact, I noticed yesterday that the two hooks on the back of the laundry door that used to hold the ironing board now hold other things – a hat and the “peg apron”!

    Does she have directions for ironing thing? I made something to fit a wooden tv tray and it’s worked ok but would love to see how she did yours!

    Score! You had a thoughtful swap partner. I just saw that coin purse tutorial today. If it pops up in a third place I will become obliged to make one. :-)

    It’s perfect time to make some plans for the longer term
    and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this submit and if I may just I
    desire to recommend you few interesting things
    or suggestions. Perhaps you could write subsequent articles regarding this article.
    I wish to learn even more issues approximately it!

    Feel free to surf to my page – newspaper bags

    I don’t write a bunch of comments, but i did some searching and wound up here
    Make Mine Modern Swap – Received! | Amy’s Creative Side.
    And I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it only me or does it look like some of the responses
    look like they are left by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I would like
    to follow anything new you have to post.
    Would you list of all of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
