All the ATC's have been sorted and are packaged up. I'll make the post office trip in the morning and shoot them off to their new homes. I of course got to have instant joy and have mine now. I'm so happy with it and several others that were sent as "hostess gifts" for me hosting the swap. I have them all sitting on the shelf above my cutting table with my beloved Betsy Ross machine where I can see them every day. I do need something to hold them and my hopefully increasing collection in the future. I've been eyeing up the 7 Gypsies revolving holder which just so happens to be on sale now, about $5 cheeper, hummm, it's calling to me.
I've been taking this non sewing time to read some of the books I've recently purchased and I'm just loving them both. I have done some sections of cloth with my baby lock embellisher to use for some of my future inchies. I've also taken some time to experiment with the Shiva paintstiks which turned out very well. I'd picked up a set of metallics at the recent quilt show and not used them yet. They were a lot of fun.
