Weekend Update

I can honestly say, this weekend went by like a flash. We went to birthday parties, cleaned, shopped, washed cars, prepped planting beds, played outside, met with a longtime (and now far away) friend, and I even took in a bit of sewing. WHEW! For once I hardly spent any time in front of the computer (which is would explain the lack of posting this weekend) so it’s time for lots of updates! First, I finished up a “labor of love” project. I wish I could share more, but I’ll have to wait for the ‘big reveal’ later in the year. I can say, this project allowed me to make my first purchase from Mood and try out the faux leather from Fabric.com. I highly recommend both. I also made a fun project for my Office Swap:

A Pretzel Day apron! I can’t take credit for the sewing on the apron as I decided to go with a purchased one – I figured the focus wasn’t so much on the apron itself, but the designlogo, instead. I like that this item is ‘fun’, but is still functional – something that is sometimes hard to do with ‘themed’ swaps as it’s so easy to make projects that are fun, but wind up sitting on a shelf, just for looks. Speaking of swaps, I also managed to pick up some supplies for Week of Baby Onesies. I get to make some newborn (ooooh, they are so tiny), gender neutral shirts for my partner. I’m excited to try out some of the ideas I have planned!
