passport holder

After reading this post, Miss Amber asked me if I would make a passport holder for her upcoming trip to Paris.  I said, “sure” (or something like that) with a hopeful confidence that I could actually do a little sewing.  Since today yesterday was my last possible day to finish it, I finished it.passport holder

I made it with a couple of vintage linen fabric samples.  The main fabric is such beautiful quality and for Amber’s sake I’ll mention that it came from the attic of Mrs. H.

Speaking of Swappy Ladies ( I know I really wasn’t talking about that but the above mentioned link did), I received my gift (about a week and a half ago).

Mya's bird houseMya made an ever-so-fun birdhouse for me.  Customized with a poster from Mary Jane’s Farm Fair which is my next show.  It really is darling.



She also stitched up an adorable birdie!

Fun stuff!  Thanks, Mya!

Jackie w/Kates & Abbs @ her shower

We had a fun bridal shower here last night for Jackie, my future D.I.L ~ beautiful girl inside and out.  She fell in love with the little B&W kittie.  The ‘feeling’ seemed mutual.

A couple of weeks ago I won a Pay It Forward gift and part of accepting that meant that I would award 3 gals with blogs a handmade gift and they would do the same and so on…  The first 3 to comment were:
