There is a lovely group
known as the
Queen Bee Five
who regularly swap their lovely makes.

I love them all individually
and I love them as a group.

I saw their Christmas gift swaps
and decided to try to make what Carole had...
snippet rolls.

Carole ran the fabric journal tutorial
I did last year.

It seems that
many of us have been inspired to make a snippet roll too...

Mine is not finished yet
and will be different as I have no
sewing machine
but it's fun using up those scraps...

why not give it a try ?

Pop over to see:


  1. I also love Carole's snippet rolls. I was so excited when she posted her tutorial. I will be making some of those sweeties soon.

  2. Well, I can't wait to see yours finished! Everyone's turns out so differently, and ALL are SO beautiful!

    I have one of Carole's but have no desire to make one of my own- yet. Is there something wrong with me?


  3. I've seen Nathalie's snippet roll - it's LUSH! I'm going to have a look - I have a sewing machine but no ability to use it :0( but if you're doing yours by hand then maybe I can too.


  4. It sounds a fun project but I hardly dare look as I might be seduced into joining in and I must stick to my own self imposed schedule this year. Your spring ATC swap looks a good project too. I'm hoping to get all my stuff done and then join in with projects/swaps later Penny, especially in the Autumn and lead up to Christmas

    Thanks for entering my giveaway. Good luck sweetie x

  5. Penny, I can't wait to see more! Hand sewing is so much nicer than machine stitching, I think yours is going to look spectacular!
    Hugs, Carole
    (thanks for the lovely comments too!)

  6. I'm looking forward to seeing yours!

  7. Oh...Penny! How sweet..... the QB5 love you, too. Hugs all around! I have the one Carol sent me....but like Nathalie, I haven't made one yet. I think it's because I'm beating my head against the wall trying to get going on the next QB5 Swap that I'm supposed to mail by Monday. Here I am reading blogs!!!
