Swaps and More...


I've been doing a lot of swaps lately, they are fun, and i get to meet folks from all over the world, here's some pictures of some of the resent swaps!
the fabric is from a swap where we SWAPPED a pound or two or three with someone else, my swap partner lives in Denmark.

The basket/bag is from my swappartner for the quilted basket exchange, my creation went to New Zealand and the one shown here is from the Indian Ocean.

I also joined an eye spy square exchange....wowsers that brought in alot of 4" squares (400+) and only 3 repeats...great job gals/guys...this one shall be great to put together!

see you all later in the week!

Fire Victims help needed for Slave Lake

If you are not aware, a town in Alberta was destroyed by a horrible forest fire that is still going. The town is on full evacuation and 8000 residents are all displaced into many different locations. We are shocked to say the very least, I've sent up with the many trucks 4 afgans (knitted by my great friend Teddy Yates) and am in the midst of collecting quilts and afgans for the people to give them some comfort.
I am also collecting pet supplies for all the displaced and very scared pets.
If you can help email me at girlfriendsandgiggles@shaw.ca and we can arrange delivery of the items.

Thank you for your support. You can also donate at the Red Cross.

My heart goes out to those 8000 residents whom cannot go home...
