Happy Saturday!

I had hoped to sleep in today, but Hubby had to be to work at 7:30 so I got up at about 6:45 with him. I had already completed a full day's worth of tasks by 10am!

MaryAnn and I did a pink/red themed swap for January and her box to me arrived yesterday - it was jam packed full of goodies! Miss S is modeling one of the matching aprons that she made for us:)

Here's the rest of the goodies:
A beautiful pink scarf, fun paper goods, heart stamps, rhinestone R, candy jar with suckers, ribbon, pink earrings, makeup goodies for Miss S and lots of other good stuff! Thank you MaryAnn! Your package will be on its way on Monday.

I finished my document duvets for the In Stitches Sew Along - the closures are supposed to be grommets and ribbon but I can't find my grommet tool so I chose to use button and twine enclosures instead. I like how they turned out. The fabric is decorator fabric from the $2 a yard table at Walmart. I have about 4 more yards left:)


I finished this baby blanket for my sister in law this morning. I started it last night during the commercial breaks during Monk and Psych and finished it up today. The top is random patchwork, with a chenille backing. Very warm and cuddly for Miss River who is due to arrive in about two weeks: )


I also finished this apron this morning - this is a close up of the pocket detail. This is for a swap-bot package that went missing so I'm sending another one out. Hopefully this one will make it to Oklahoma City this time!!

Everything you made looks great - I love the fabric that apron is made out of. Good idea on the document duvet - I've been wanting to make one but didn't want to buy a grommet maker - your idea is perfect!
