The 'Sandy Claus', based on Jack from 'Nightmare before Christmas' got a bit big and turned into an ornament! So I made a ribbon poinsettia for a pin!

Yes, another swap!!! I think next year I will make it my resolution not to sign up for so many swaps. Then I might get some things done for myself! LOL
This one is a Santa swap on another one of my Yahoo groups. I am on quite a few Yahoo groups. He is a stump doll and I tweaked hand and head from an Ute Vasina pattern. He is 15" tall.

In my CRAFT yahoo group I am in a block swap. I made this 12" block for MaryAnn in Maine. Her favorite colors are blues and yellows. This is the Storm at Sea block.
The pin I made for my Pindollalley swap. Black and white for Nov. This one is for Patti. I am making another black and white pin for one of the new memebers Lori.
I am also going to start putting up my Christmas village today. I will get a photo when it is all done!

I made another bag for Mary's scholarship fund. I am having fun with these!
The swaps I recieved in the mail this week. I got a school teacher ATD from Lily for the Sept Back to school swap at my Artist Trading Doll Yahoo group. I got a witch named Hazel ATD from Kathy for the Oct swap in the same group. Aren't they great!! I got a great Autumn Annie and her ghost Boo, both wearable pins, from Sherri on my PinDollAlley Yahoo group.
I love swaps! I am working on my Oct swaps now and will post pics when I am done.
I finished my Black and White challenge and got those pics off to Sandy and on time too!

The second bag is called the body bag! LOl I made it from an embossed velvet. I added sequin trim at the top and pearls down the front and a heavy beaded fringe on the bottom. These are to hold scissors or items of that size.
The scholarship is to send someone to the Creations in Fibers Doll event in New Mexico. Hopefully we will raise enough to pay for their classes and hotel and travel fees. Maybe even to send more than one person. Go to her website (Link above) and check out all the lovely auction items!
I am in the process of making yet another bag that is bigger still! LOve it!

Here are the quilts I made at the retreat. The colorful one is a tilt and turn block. I was in a swap on an online group and I asked for a center cat fabric and outer bright fabrics.
The star quilt is a block of the month quilt and a calendar quilt. I fused appliqued the centers of the stars and they represent each month. I still need to put the green border around but need more fabric.
The red and green quilt is from charm square packs and and matching striped holly fabric.
I still have to put the red border on this one.
