Tuesday Teaser

Today's Tuesday teaser is for the lovely Lisa.  She was kind enough to send me some goodies for paper crafting and sweet swag from the Renegade Craft Fair.  Awesome stamps from far away lands, an embroidered notebook to feed my paper addiction, blank ATCs, divine twine.... so many bits of wonderful.
Isn't the little strawberry she made so cute?  It hangs on my work bench where I keep special little things that make me happy.  (Here you can, kind of, also see Keni's paper crane and Sam's Guide to 2010.)

As I got together a little bundle of happy for her, it occurred to me- I can't send her something without including something stitchy.  After all, embroidery is what "introduced" us in the first place.  So, I set to work on a pattern that is sooooo her.  Can't show you guys yet, but here's a little preview.
I chose bright and happy colors, because that's what reminds me of Lisa!

 I'll be back soon with tons of things to share.  Now that some major projects have gotten done, I'll have more time for regular blogging.  Yay! 

Hope you guys are having a craftastic day!!

I love your little package of happiness. I see you have a little pig flashlight hanging there also ,it reminded me I needed to get another one for my son, he lost his on a trip. I cannot wait to see what you stitched up.

Lisa- work, work, working away at it! Soon, doll :) I'm the same way, picking up little things here and there :)

Roxanne- I have a bunch of the vintage floral flannel if you want a bit. they are already pre-cut squares though, if that's ok. Let me know, Send me an email :)

Keni- love cranes and that one commemorates my first swapbot swap!

Jennifer- Lolz, my guy put that little pig in my stocking at x-mas. I was like, what are you trying to say here?! ha ha.

I can't wait to see what you make! That blue and green floral fabric caught my eye and brought me a happy memory! I think my grandma had a heating pad cover made from that exact material. It reminded me of visits with gramma :) Thanks, Mafiosa!
