Starting a New Project and a Swap

I feel like I am always saying I'm sorry for not posting more but life has been so crazy busy since I have been back from my dads house.  I finished the top for Jacquie before I went to GR and I was waiting to talk to her when I got back.  We finally connected on Tuesday.  She asked me to go ahead and make the back for the quilt and send it to her quilter!!!  I am soooooooo thrilled about that.  Her quilter is Angela Walters (Quilting is my Therapy) and her work is incredible!  I am adding a design element to the back that I will be working on all weekend and it is a little time consuming but I think it will make the back totally cool.  I can't wait until I can share pictures with everyone.

I participated in another swap too and sent my goodies before I left.  My swap partner was even busier than me but I got my package from her this week and it was well worth the wait!  Lookie, lookie at all these yummy goodies.

I sent another swap out this week and will share with you when my new goodies arrive in the mail too.

Then, as if I didn't have a brain in my head, I started another project. Can you guess what it is?

In case you can't it is the MBS Christmas Tree Pattern. It is not all sewn together but I am working on it and I got all the HST sewn into rows so far. Just not all the rows sewn together.

I used one charm pack of Flurry and the yardage is the aqua snow flake from Ready, Set Snow by Me and My Sister. I got everything at Crazyquiltgirl fabric shop if you want to make one too.

I did find a mistake in the pattern so need to contact for Christmas. I need to talk to the person that wrote the pattern, but overall it has been easy to make. I plan on giving this to my Zumba instructor and may make a second one for my Body Pump instructor too.

Yesterday was my class with Suzanne Marshall and it was amazing. I am off to the gym but will share it with you tomorrow. So for now have a great weekend! ~XOP~

Lots of lovelies in the mail. Take a look at your tree - the bottome row has one Hst going the wrong way(light blue). I am thinking of doing another one of these but in a rustic, country theme.
