Friday Night Sew In - August, and a PIF

I joined in on the FNSI over at Wendy's together with 58 other lovely ladies.
I can't show what I was sewing because it's for Kerry in the Quilting Block Swaps Australia. I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for her so you have to wait for that one.
And then I continued on my HVIRVELSTRØM. I've almost finished the arms. This is the arms together with a piece of the back, even if it looks like a snake for now!




I've been lucky lately and have won this beautiful package of Tonga treats from Kate over at Two Little Banshees. Thankyou so very much Kate, the fabrics are divine!

And after that I had a PIF gift in my letterbox. It's from Irene over at Lappegal. Thankyou very much Irene, I still haven't decided if it's going to hang in the hallway for mittens and stuff or by my computer and keep things I have to have nearby!
 
So now it's my turn for a PIF (paying it forward).
If you want to be the recipient of my PiF gift, all you have to do is to be one of the three first people to leave a comment on this blog post, and I will send you a handmade gift within the next 12 months.
What you have to do in return is to pay it forward to three other people, and so it goes on.

The good thing is I will send it all over the world!

Friday Night With Friends - July

Friday evening my lovely friend Anita joined me and we got some stitching done in our knittings.
I started a new cardigan, HVIRVELSTRØM by Annette Danielsen. This is how far I got.
Before Anita came I managed do another hexie flower.

















I bought a pocket book for a friends birthday last week and of course I had to make a book cover for it!
I'm linking up with Wendy over at Sugarlane Quilts and her Birthday Love Stash!

Tote Bag Swap

Do you remember I took part in a Secret Tote Bag Swap, and I sent mine to Lia who was the organizer of the swap.
My partner was Eszter from Hungary (no blog). And boy if I was overwhelmed when I opened the parcel from her!
First of all there was a beautiful bag, I love all the fabric she had put in it! AND she had made me a small pouch and a cute bird and a doll and a girl who is supposed to be filled with lavender, she didn't do it because of the customs but it was easily done by me.
I would never have thought about customs, do you when you send parcels overseas?
I guess I have to be a bit more specific when filling out the custom declarations from now on.
She had also enclosed the blue fabric that is handprinted and handdyed in Hungary. The card is from the area where she lives.
Thank you so very much Eszter, I love all of it!

Now it's that time of the month again, Friday Night With Friends, hosted by Cheryll so pop on over to her and sign up you too!
She's even making some cookies for us, Yum!
