Why yes, I am still here...

 So, one week becomes two...then three...I have had some nerve pain flaring and sewing has just been starting to be feeling possible again.  I have been slowly trimming a long term project with hst's above so that I can keep a "toe" in quilting.

No excuses not to have sent a proper blog post thank you to Soma who spoiled me crazy rotten with a swap we did recently with a theme of her wonderful paper pieced leaf pattern (find it here or here).

This is the beauty that she sent me which is now hanging above my sewing space (you can see what I sent her on her post here)

These two pics are stolen from Soma's site because she photographed them so much better than I can!!!  Hope you don't mind, my friend!Raw Honey Yellow Fingerless Mitts | Whims And Fancies

Along with some other goodies (notice how the card totally coordinates with the fabric?!!  wha???!!)  and an absolutely gorgeous pair of mitts that have been keeping me warm and toasty as we wait for true Spring weather around here...

She then included a Sherlock drawing for my teen son which he immediately framed and made a vignette on his desk around.  He was happy indeed :)
Thank you Soma for a wonderful swap, you truly brightened this winter with your amazing package!

Soma did a great job on her swap projects as did you. I hope the nerve pain continues to improve.

It was such a fun swap. We have to do another one. I love that frame you guys picked out for the drawing. Hope you are feeling a lot better, friend!
