Not sure where last week went, but I was a little bit obsessed by crafting something--so much so that I didn't keep up with my blogging buddies, and I couldn't fall asleep for 2 nights in a row I was so excited about it. Do you ever get like that? That doesn't happen to me very often. I'm not quite ready to post pictures yet, because I'm still working on it, but maybe later in the week. In the meantime, I'm going to try to catch up with everybody tonight sometime between putting the boys to bed and watching my show.
I was surprised by a wonderful swap package from Joyce of Slateblu a few days ago. I made Joyce a baby sling (for her cutie pie, Ava), and she generously sent me the Amy Butler book, In Stitches, that I've been eyeing for a while now. Thank you so much, Joyce--it has so many neat projects in it that I can't wait to try!
I had to show you her gorgeous handwriting. I love to see people's handwriting. Not that I'm a penmanshipologist, or anything, but I can tell you just from looking at it that aside from being generous, she is also very creative and artistic. Oh, I guess I knew that from her blog anyway (smirk).
And thanks to Randi, here's a new ironing board cover I made for myself using leftover sling fabric. I didn't realize I needed one until I saw her tutorial, and then suddenly I couldn't live another minute without one. Thanks Randi! And by the way, no, I don't usually do my ironing outside. It's one of those overcast, drizzly Seattle days where there is hardly any natural light in the house.
