No sewing at all...

...Ok...hardly nothing at all... I managed another finish from my class with Leanne Beasley last year... finally...think I stitched it within 3 days....and took several months to finish... yikkees... ...this never happends to you...or ... ;)
Hope I´m not the only one!!!
...otherwise...NO SEWING!!!...
...just a lot of sighing and...not really in mood for any creative...
But I long for it!!!

Had one of my brighter moments the other day... You all know my daughter Linda moved home for a month...and with her a lot of old furniture...some was going to be dumped...but I got an idea!! Had one desk upstairs...not practical at all...just laying things on it...
And Linda had a bookshelf in two parts...I took the part under and sawed off the legs and put the two pieces together ... and... TADA!!!
A new workspace for me... :)
...I love it... think it will work just fine... the best of all...more storage!!
Don´t you just love my holder for cutters and scissors!!! :)
...I´m pretty impressed of myself...
..and DH thought I was out of my mind...he said...it won´t work...you just never fix sawing those legs even...HAH...I did!!

And so my Cup Cakes have travelled the ocean to Linda in USA...
I must say this Swap have been so fun... I want to thank Sharon who came up with the idea and organized it...
I have found a fantastic new friend "over there"...it have been so fun making these cup cakes and teasing Linda with tiny tiny pictures ...I will miss that... ;)

And thankyou all who left comments on Lindas blog...guess what...
more tears from me... but happy tears... :L
...I´m still waiting for my cupcakes from Linda to arrive...she sent them a day earlier than me... but no sign for them yet...hope for next week...

...And talking about waiting...check this out...
I really hope for this to arrive soon...
It´s incredible... Israel... :#
So POSTMAN....deliver me some goodies next week!!!
Waiting for my Four Seasons Quilt to turn up too...
