Fun Stuff

I had a Friday Finish, My Strawberry swap items, 2 bags, quilted kinda matchstick style.
 The Strawberry Daquiri pouch is lined with By Annies "Soft and Stable" and the inside fabric has Vilene Lamifix, ironed onto it, so if she wants to put a cold drink in it, the drinks should stay fairly cool and won't wick into the fabric when they defrost.

Need a Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe:
  • 2 ounces Rum 
  • 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup sliced Strawberries (adjust to taste) 
  • My tip for the Strawberries, during strawberry season, I wash my strawberries, grind them up, put them in a muffin tin, and freeze, after frozen I take them out of the muffin tin and place them in a freezer zip-lock bag.  I use 2 (muffin tin) sized strawberry batches to make my Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri and omit the ice.
Place everything in a blender, wet the top of your glass with water (or rum :) and dip in sugar,
Pour mixed Strawberry mixture into glass and  Enjoy!

The backs are quilted the same, just in case she doesn't like the fronts, she can have matching bags on the backside.

I sent my Big Stitch Swap last week and she got it today, she loved it!  Yippee!
I got mine in the mail this week and I love mine also!  Look at this awesome fabric basket.
I LOVE the sewing machine, and the tiny hexies!

 A rainbow of color, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink!  Interspersed with embroidered blocks, I really wish you could see it, the workmanship on the embroidery is amazing!
Jennie of Jennie's Threads is from the UK and she also sent a bundle of text and low volume fabric scraps.
 Kat patiently waiting for me to take the photos so she could nab the basket, she thinks it is for her.
Well I snagged it back and put some pre-cuts in it, down in my "fabric room", LOL, that is what I am calling it.
Sorry for the poor lighting it is pretty dark in the basement.
