My Creative Space: Its in the mail

How is everyone going with there scrap swap?

I'm working on a tutorial for an envelope clutch which looks like, well an envelope.  I had hopes to post it today  but I've had a stoopid virus and have been feeling yucky for over a week.

As my own boss I have given myself the week off work, but I still need to keep my hands busy in the brief moments between unconsciousness and coughing fits.  I might get it finished this afternoon, but maybe tomorrow.

Scrap bag ready for recipient 

Meantime, I got my scrap bag in the post today.  And huzzah!  I received my own parcel of scraps yesterday.  Thanks to Kerry-Anne.

My gift of scraps  

I sat on the sofa last night and cut some little birds - the link is up there under Scrap Bag Tutorials.  Addictive wee things that they are :)

Spool birds cut and ready to sew

I think I'm going to make some hexies with some more of these scraps.  I have a guest tutorial coming up from the lovely Lost Seamstress involving hexagons - can't wait!!

Linkin' up with more creatives here
