A crafty swap

Hilary apron 1

Apologies for the radio silence! It was unintended. My parents and brother have been visiting from Wisconsin and Ohio, respectively, and we all spent the long weekend in Vermont. They're all gone now *sniff* and I'm getting back into the swing of things. So, apron! This was a request from my friend Hilary, a super awesome artist. She asked for an apron for her new waitressing job in exchange for some art. How could I refuse?? The apron is thigh-length with large pleated pockets to hold everything a pink-haired waitress needs. It turned out really well (if I do say so myself!)

little letter needle book 2

I also made one of these little letter needle books following this tutorial. It's pretty adorable and fabulous! And quite easy, so I'm sure I'll be making more in the near future.

Hilary houses

And these are the little houses I received in exchange! I am SO in love with them. They are so well made and cute and just really really fabulous. I have been staring at them for a week, but I think I'll be taking them to my office so I can see them 40 hours/week.

More TK about other recent crafting (block party! mini-quilt swap!) and something very special I saw in Vermont...
