Piles of stuff and sneak peeks

The latest QB5 project has been a challenge and a half! We sent each other a foundation piece of our choice and a pack of bits that could be used or added to as the maker wished. Nathalie's Asian themed envie was a dream to work with, not that I'm in anyway biased of course! love this kind of thing!
a sneak peek of the calm side of her coaster,
wait till she sees the reverse, tis a tad brighter (understatement...) ekkk!!
Patty dear Patty sent us a toasted flattened sardine tin to work on
I'm not quite finished but it's coming along nicely!
Carole our resident sewing Queen mailed us all an embroidery hoop and some fabric
I just knew that French dictionary would come in handy one day...
A cardboard house arrived from Linda and by special request I did a little Swiss twist
what is that man doing??
My pack to the gals contained a Bingo card as the base and I sent a selection of guy stuff. Until recently I had very few pictures of men but MIL went shopping I now have more men than I know what to do with!! now I just need to get on a make something with this little lot myself!

I LoVe what I see so far!!!! Very clever wrapping Carole's hoop with paper. I suppose I would be a copy cat if I did that now?
