So I have had this stupid cough for about 3 weeks and that is all that it was. Well if finally went away on Saturday. Last night out of the blue my nose is stuffy and my sinus' are full. Where did this cold come from. I have to be better by Saturday. I stayed home from work today to make sure I got lots of rest to get better faster.
Christy got my swap package and she was thrilled. Now I can post pictures.
I made two coffee cozies. I have been wanting to make these for awhile and got around to it for this swap.
I made another Emmeline apron. I love this pattern. It is fairly easy and it is reversible. I have had this butterfly fabric for years. My mom bought 8 yards, about 10 years ago to make dresses for Rainbow Girls. She made my dress, but never got around to making hers. She gave me the fabric when I took up sewing. I never knew what to do with it, so I thought this might work out. I wanted to do the dark blue as the second main color, but didn't have enough. I think it looks great the way it is now that it is all done.
This was a quick and easy notebook holder. You can put your pens/pencils on one side and a medium notebook on the other.
I made 10 fire coasters. They truly are a firefighters family. I got this fabric over the summer in a fabric swap. I didn't think I would ever use it, but then Christy came along.
These are about half of the cards that I have made in the past year. I love making cards, but never give them out to people. I decided to clean out my stash and give them to Christy. After they were all packed away in the box, I realized that she too makes and sells cards. I gave them to here anyway. I am glad that I did because she just loved them. The fabric basket was made from fabric that I bought on my very first fabric shopping trip, when I first taught myself to sew. I always wanted to make a tote, I just never got around to it. I think it looks great.
Finally I found this fireman fabric at GeeGee's in Yelm. I was just looking for inspiration and I couldn't pass this up. I continued to look around at the store and found the orange backing, which matches the flames on the front perfectly. It was a simple design, but I didn't really want to break apart the front fabric.
I am so glad that Christy liked everything. I should be getting my package in the mail tomorrow. I can't wait. So, I sew.
