More RAKs Have Landed! XMas In July Swap Deadline Tomorrow

YIPPEE! Just received word Meari from Meari's Musings received her RAK package. I discovered her AWESOME tutorial on how to put together nifty needle books - if you haven't made one, you really must check this out. I'd tried several before, but Meari's step-by-step instructions are perfect for those of us who are - ummmmmmm - novices working with a sewing machine.

RAK #6:


Floss and fabric


 A needlebook (of course <G> ) - cover design from Heart in Hand Designs


Inside of needle book with a pocket - trim is fabric ribbon that looks like a tape measure 


Here's a closer look at the fabric for the back - it says "There's No Place Like Home"

RAK #7: 
Renee of Living My Dream received RAK#7. I've noticed in her blog she likes to stitch spiders and spider webs - and seahorses. Soooooo........


A scissor fob with a seahorse charm and seashell beads



A seahorse needlebook (outside)


Inside needle book with fabric trim that looks like a measuring tape and handmade seashell pins


Seashell beads


Fabrics and floss

There are five more swirling around in the postal system....all over the world.....hope to hear from the recipients soon. NOW - off to stitch!

P.S. Don't forget - tomorrow is the deadline for signing up for the Christmas in July Swap. There's still time to transform yourself into an elf and join in. Just click on the Xmas in July button at the top right of my blog and leave a comment over on the Xmas in July blog.

OK - NOW.....off to stitch!

  3. Two more amazing gifts Kim - you are so generous and I'm certain the recipients are totally jumping up and down with joy over their treasures. I really do wish I had time to play along with the Christmas/July swap but there are just too many things I have to get done in the next while. Maybe next year!

  10. Kim, thank you SO much! The RAK I received is perfect! I love the needlebook and the shells on the needles are wonderful. The seahorse you stitched is darling and the fabric is fantastic. The fabrics and flosses you sent are beautiful. The shell beads will be put to good use. And, the scissor fob is gorgeous. I smiled every time I clipped my thread last night and thought of you. Thank you so much! (((Hugs)))
