I honestly can't believe how fast this week has gone by. It's been odd as we haven't been extremely busy...it just went...too fast.
I didn't get much handwork done this week but I do want to show off someone else's, and show you what I DID get done this week (I'll do better next week, promise!!).
I got my key fobs made for my partner in the RATZ swap (Rapid And Tiny Zakka) and I was surprised that these also weren't as scary as I thought. I hope my partner likes them!
check out her blog here) and they showed up yesterday. They're pretty amazing. She really did wonderfully and I had a hard time keeping my kids away from this elephant!! Yes, it has a button eye on BOTH sides and can you see the handstitched flower on it too?!! Kill me. It's too great isn't it!
I finished up my project for the Modern She Made swap and got it mailed yesterday! Here's a couple peeks. I did do some hand stitching on this that I think turned out pretty well. This was my first time using embroidery floss to hand quilt something so it was also a chance to learn some things-thanks for all your helpful needle advice too!!
It's a mini-quilt and a set of 10 napkins... I included some extras that I hope my partner will like and be able to use in future projects :)
And finally I was able to do a little bit of hand sewing for myself (sorry, didn't get a picture). My husband and I have been getting the TV show "Twin Peaks" on Netflix and so we stayed up way too late watching it last night. The show was too crazy to look away from so I only got a few hexagons made, but every little bit helps right?!
Has anyone else watched that show before? If you like Psych, you'll probably find it funny and ridiculous and maybe a tiny bit awesome. Maybe. It also creeps me out a bit so we had to catch up on Modern Family after it was over so I wouldn't have nightmares...don't tell anyone...I am easily creeped out...
Be sure to head over to Katie at There and Back to see what everyone is working on in the Handmade Parade!!!
