The mail is running again ...

The mail man (woman too) are finally back to work, and just in time! They must have known I had three swap deadlines this week! I got them all out in the mail, and hopefully they won't take too long to get to their new respective owners. I hear there is a bit of a backlog since Canada Post has been off for a bit.

Anyway, here is the first of the items. It's a bag made from a Keyka lou pattern. My partner said she liked Anna Maria Horner, so Anna Maria Horner it is!

The second one was a little more last minute than I would have liked. I had ordered some pre-made linen tea towels from Stefanie, but unfortunately, they haven't arrived yet because of the strike (boo). So, I washed some linen, and made my own tea towels. They are a little wonky, but hopefully close enough. Pure linen is tricky!
I used a candy bar of Bliss, and made some dresdens for the front. I had never done these before, and I am pretty pleased with the result.

And lastly, was the Spicing up the Kitchen swap. I showed you a little peek of the placemats a while ago, but I also made some tea towels.

So now all my current swaps are done. I will be waiting patiently for my items to come in the mail, and I may or may not be stalking the postman a little : ) I am sure I will be signing up for something new soon enough.
