What I really did last week.

Last week I worked on lots of projects that I couldn't show, but I got them finished and in the mail by the end of the week. Now they have been received (I am impressed with the US Postal System - very fast) and I can share them.

First, I put together some things for Natasha for the Favorite Things Swap. I made her a hostess apron and tote. I also included a subscription to Blueprint, my new favorite magazine and some chocolate. Chocolate is definitely right at the top of my list of favorite things, right behind air.

I also made a bag and diaper wallet for my good friend, Phoebe. I forgot to take pictures before I sent it away, but she blogged about it here if you want to take a look. I used an Amy Butler print and I really like how it turned out. I'll be doing more of these for the shop in the near future.

And, I also got some fantastic mail yesterday. Jenn and I swapped some items from our shops and mine arrived yesterday. Look how lovely! I put them right to use and then took a picture of my great sewing book and pin cushion. It looks like she's got another set in her shop, just in case you want one of your own.

Very nice! I love Jenn's sewing books. You were very busy last week!

Natasha said...

Oh Jessi, I love everything you sent - thank you! And the magazine and chocolate definitely came in handy while I was home today with sick kids and feeling sorry for myself. Nothing like chocolate, especially dark chocolate, to make things better!

Jenn Maruska said...

So glad you like your sewing set! : )

After I saw how pretty the colors that you chose were - I made one more set with that combo.

Looks like the pincushion is getting ALOT of use! : )

I'll be showing off my apron on my blog later today - I LOVE it!!!

Jessi, the pear towel you sent Jenn is SO cute!

Very cute things! I followed the link to the bag you made in the Amy Butler fabric for your friend that is expecting. Loved it!

I agree that chocolate would be right up there with air as one of my favorite things as well! :)

I love Jenn's sewing books too, I use mine for my monkey making bag. Her pin cushion is in my sewing room window as we speak.
Love the apron & tote, those are great.
