I sure have been having fun! Seems like forever that I've just sewn for the sheer fun of it........although usually I do have something in mind. I was saddened when one of my favorite swaps folded (mug rug), so thought I should take it upon myself to perhaps make a few for friends. After all, Valentine's Day is approaching and I do have some really nice Flickr friends. Marilyn and I decided to exchange.......I made her this one:
And she sent me this beauty:
Then, I just HAD to make one for my dear friend (now in California, but should be here in Wisconsin where she belongs), Annie:
Then, I made this for a friend who enjoys rainbow things just about as much as me. She was kind enough to give me the perfect partner in a recent swap:
Then, I made a few more pouches.......I thought one wasn't enough to completely perfect my zipper skills. First is this one......it's little at only 5 1/2 inches square:
Then, I made this today..........I'm thinking this pouch thing is sort of like making two mug rugs and sewing them together.......sort of??!!
That was the front.....and here is the back and insides...........
So...............that's the kind of stuff I do when I'm not making ladies. THAT and look for my sweetie Toby in the snow:
Since that picture was taken we've gotten more snow and now his poor tummy touches the snow even as he moves. I'm surprised he hasn't gotten stuck yet. Poor baby! Spring can't come soon enough for us!!!
That's about the news here. Tomorrow I have to clean my house..............eikes! It's a sight! And after.....I'm rewarding myself by putting two zippers in another two pouches. lol Enjoy your week, friends! Have some fun!
