Another Box from Heaven (and other things crafty)

I received another super stupendous swap box for July's ALFALC from my Flickr twin, Amy.  So much fabric and goodies I could hardly stand it!  She knows me so well.  I loved EVERYTHING!  Hopefully she'll get her box Monday and love it half as much!

I finished my Christmas bee blocks early this month!  I was determined to conquer the pinwheel so I did a little blog studying over at KarrieLyne's blog.  Here are the results:

And in the interest of keeping it real (and to make other messy quilters feel a bit better), here is the current state of my sewing area:

It's driving me crazy and I think it's time for a major cleaning!  Also, I hate sewing in this dark cave!  I call it the murder cave because of the blood red walls (we didn't paint it).  It's technically our dining room, but how often do you really use a dining room? :)  ha ha!

I've also gone hexi-crazy!  After receiving the wonderful sewing machine cover made with hexies and my own hexi kit, I've decided to make my Modern Swap partner a hexi sewing machine cover too!  I hope she'll like it!

And for all the grandmas and Daddy who read this, here are some pictures of the kids:
