Occasionally I do send out swap packages.

Finally, a few of the things *I've* made!

Sent to: anime_girlie

Here is the circle skirt that I made for anime_girlie, as modeled by the recipient.

In all my years of sewing, I've never actually made one. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was. It probably took me longer to re-thread my serger than to make the skirt!

I sent dontlookback an Amy Butler pattern for Madison Bags. I'd bought a bunch of her patterns a while back and had just never bonded with this one. I'm glad it's being appreciated by someone else! I also included a little something extra: a yard of fabric with cherries on it.

This is a tote bag / zip pouch combo that I made for a girl who's going to Hawaii in October. She wanted something neat to bring along on the trip. I had just the thing! These have been cut out for over two years, but I've never gotten around to making them.

Closeup of the fabric. Aloha!

Edited to add:
Here's a picture I took myself, which is closer to the true colors. Isn't the fabric great?

Wow!!! I know I say that a lot, but I can't come up with anything better, because my vocab goes out the window lol. Just, wow!

Hey, how are things going with you and the boy? Didn't he pose the big one a while back?? Any news on that?

No ring yet, but there are big things in the works...I will remain deliberately mysterious for now. ;)
