My new blogging friend!

Thanks to the Grow Your Blog Party hosted by Vicki Boster of 2BagsFull  in January of this year I met several wonderful craftspeople and bloggers. It is so much fun to reach outside of the jewelry and polymer clay world now and again. It's a great way to meet people AND get more followers for your blog. Vicki organizes it in January each year but the info to sign up for it comes out around October. Definitely worth checking out if you want to get more eyes on your blog and enjoy a great party as well!
Linda is another Canadian blogger who is very talented in quilting.....something I know nothing about. While reading her blog a few weeks ago I came across a post describing a quilted pouch she made for her iPad and I fell in love. Linda was nice enough to agree to make one for me and it arrived here 2 days ago! She knows that I'm blogging about this and in fact she has done the same on her blog. She doesn't have a shop where she sells things but she is incredibly gifted in her sewing technique and her use of colour. See what you think! And stop by and check out Linda's blog StitchLines

I love the colours and it matches perfectly my plastic purple iPad stand so I'm perfectly co-ordinated for a change!

Patiently waiting!

Here is the wonderful package of beady wonderfulness that I received last week. My partner, Johana Nunez got her dates mixed up and thought the deadline was a week earlier. Lucky me! 

I, however, didn't send her goodies out until the last possible day so it will probably be a few more 
days more before she gets hers.

To be perfectly fair I'm not going to show you what I received until I hear that she has hers!

Just to remind you this is the teaser photo of what I sent her!

The mail seems to be moving fast these days so hopefully it won't be too long before Johana gets hers. As soon as I hear that she has received the package I will reveal what we both sent each other.
