  30. Interesting and funny post and I love the Sailor's mouth hexie

  31. Oh my goodness I can hardly keep up with your emotional roller coaster! I'm exhausted :)
    Love this post!

  32. I've heard you swear more than that on a train ride! You get about don'tcha? All that swappy goodness stuff looks great. Especially love the Sailor pincushion, and Curly Boy's goodies. Love that pouch you did for him. Getting excited about that Japanese swap!

  33. As usual love everything but especially that pin cushion. Can't even imagine how you did that. Is it some kind of computerized machine embroidery thingy? Or by hand??

  34. I wondered why it had been so quiet of late!

  35. First time visiting you and I have to thank you for making me laugh this morning! I kept waiting and waiting for the swearing (yes, I'm like that) and thought maybe you just meant bad, then I saw it almost fell off my chair laughing!
    Great post, great photos!
    Off to read more......again, thanks!

  36. Oooh, I am LOVING your work! I got married in Loch Lomond (not in the actual Loch, but in Luss) and I l'oeuf it, I think it's my favourite part of the country.

    I would give ANYTHING to be able to do hexies as good as you do them!
