Pipe Cleaners and Fabric

We've been experimenting with pipe cleaners and the creations in the Klutz Pipe Cleaners Gone Crazy book I bought at a yard sale a few weeks ago. Nature Girl has enjoyed twisting pipe cleaners together for awhile now. She likes making snakes and dragons. Nature Girl made her own creation while I enjoyed following the instructions to make items from the book for her. It's amazing what you can make with a few pipe cleaners!
Today I was looking at Nature Girl's flamingo quilt trying to decide what to do with it. When the mail arrived it contained a package from the fabric swap. Tracey sent these wonderful fabrics! She also included some buttons and a clothespin doll which were quickly claimed by Nature Girl. I think the greens, yellows and pinks will be added to the flamingo quilt. The reds and blues are destined to be used in some mini quilts. It's so much fun getting new fabrics in the mail! Thank you Tracey! By the way Tracey is hosting a new swap. It's a tote bag swap. For more details and to sign up go here. If you post the information about her swap you could win this fabric so go check it out!
