My friend Robin has informed me that I must add pictures to the blog. So this time I have some photos to show. Thanks for the tip, Robin!
The giveaway: to enter the drawing, leave a comment on this blog post. If you’d like to have a second entry, mention on your blog that I am doing a giveaway and link to this post. Then leave a comment with a link to your post. To the left there is a pic of my hand holding up a tea cozy. That’s a view of the inside pockets. Tea included! Yum!
You might be wondering what it was the Tooth Fairy brought for The Girl - two 50 cent pieces for the first tooth and one 50 cent piece for the second. We thought at first we might give her something extra special to take the sting out of it for her. (Ok, maybe the sting-reduction was more for us than her.) But The Boy told her what to expect and 1) she was totally thrilled with that and 2) we did not want The Boy to feel his Tooth Fairy visits yielded lesser results just because his teeth fell out without novacaine and pincers.
Other photos: My coat-in-progress, which is from the Project Runway Simplicity pattern number 2812:
The black and white part is the lining. I got all of my fabric for it from Fabric.com.
And here is the first completed sunburst block of the year. I finished it last weekend at The Girl’s ballet class and it has been scrunched up in her ballet bag since then, so pardon the wrinkles.
And last but not least, here is the center of the Round Robin exchange that I am working to add a border to:
The owner is planning a three-dimensional beak that will be appliqued to the chicken.
