Here's one of the things I did today (told you I might actually get some work done!) - I also finished testing the December bag pattern, but I can't show you the resulting bag until December. This is the top for a swap on the 6-12" flickr group, where the November theme is words. The problem is, I don't really like it! The idea was to quilt words in the black background with black thread, so it was quite subtle, but I'm not thrilled, so I may go back to my first idea for the swap, which was just quilted words on an unpieced background. We'll see. Perhaps it will grow on me.
I also received a postcard today - belated Neocolour II swap card - but at the moment, I'm not sure where it is - the house is a bit chaotic at the moment, as nearly everything is out of the living room while that's being painted - which means the living room is an insane mess (well - all the furniture in the centre of the room with dropcloths over it) but also that the dining room/computer room are piled high with all the stuff from the living room - which is a lot of stuff, as that's where all the kids' games are and most of the toys, in addition to tons of cds & dvds and so on. Only a few days more, I hope, then it will be all lovely and done.
