What a weekend! I cannot believe how productive I've been. Well --- my bathroom still needs to be cleaned and the living room needs to be straitened. BUT, my poor sewing machine has been worked to the bone and has burned THOUSANDS of calories.
First, I finished all of my owls in the wee hours of Saturday morning. *Side Note* Waking up at 5:00 am all week ruins sleeping in on the weekends. I guess that is good, because I wasn't too affected by the time change today. *end of explanation* So, I made these little guys. I'll get them all packaged up and ready to be shipped as soon as I get my partner list.
Then, I made these wall pocket organizers for another swap. My partner lives in Croatia so I needed to make them light enough to ship and flat enough to not raise questions in customs. If I may pat myself on the back, I think they are fabulous and I really hope she likes them as much as I do.
One of the organizers is sewn to hold her knitting needles. She is a knitter and is making me a Panta (yay!) in return. The other pockets are big enough for journals and pens and whatever. I want to turn an entire wall in a giant fabric wall pocket, that is how pleased I am. I promise they are all strait and will hang even on a strait bar. All I had was this warped old bamboo to model them. I feel kind of cheap not sending her something to hang them on, but it will cost too much to send at $1 dowel. She said she'd cover that.
I helped Kim make some headbands for her niece and I covered some match boxes for Leah. I've been crafting a lot for Leah, but I can't post pics until I send her GIANT package. We are partners for the April Affair swap and our goal is wow the crowd. ;) We're so vain.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your lovely weekend. I am off to dinner with my in-laws and then Sunday night treats at great grandma's house.
