OK.  I'm dying to know what you are going to do with those old campaign signs!  Does it involve shrinking?  Do I really have to wait a couple weeks to see what you are making?  hmmph    Wink

One more week and then the gallery will start filling up!  I am way excited.  Grin

Oh Please!  You're making my mouth water.  Tongue  Swiss chocolate is my fav but the only kind you can get in Utah is Lindor Lindt Chocolates. 

Labor Day here in Utah was cold and VERY wet so there wasn't much vacationing here.  I hope everyone else had a good Labor Day weekend.  It's good that Hurricane Gustav isn't turning out to be as bad as Katrina.  Our thoughts are with everyone in the gulf states especially with those who have experienced tragedies.

I'm very anxious to see the gallery being filled with amazing crafts.  It feels like Christmas to me!  I can't wait until I get my crafts from Katz!  ~ Hope you're feeling better every day.

Here are some pictures I took of the stuff I sent to Krazy4Katz.



This is the apron that I made from the pattern book More Retro Aprons by Cindy Taylor Oates.  The picture on the left is the front of the apron and the other is the back.  The apron is lined and can be tied in the front or the back.  I think it is a cute pattern and I really like when it's tied in the front.  Katz told me her favorite colors are burgundy, sage green, and purple.  I couldn't find a fabric that had all the colors but I did find this cute fabric.



I was very excited to make this book cover for Katz' Bible.  I really liked the lace and the gold ribbon. The back looks the same except it does not have her name on it.  I made this because I noticed on her blog that she is a very faithful person and wanted to make a book cover for her Bible.



This was very fun to make!  It's a teapot cozy and my daughter tried to claim it as her own.  Katz told me her home is country farmhouse and she likes ginger-peach tea so I had to make this when I saw it in a book. 



She was not happy when I told her that I did not make it for her.  Whenever I finish making something she thinks I made it especially for her.  Smiley



Here is the tea towel that I made using a Sunbonnet Sue iron-on transfer.  Sunbonnet Sue is one of my favorite things and the kitten is obviously for Krazy4Katz.  I made the tea towel out of a cotton/linen blend fabric and appliqued the bonnet with a blanket stitch.  I am not too familiar with embroidery but do have a book that shows different stitches so I hope I did ok with this.  My grandma taught me how to do a French knot when I was 11, just before she passed away.  It's silly but I always think of her when I do a French knot and just the fact that she taught me how to do it means a lot to me.  (I don't have many memories of her.)  I decided to make a tea towel for Katz because she said she has a valance in her kitchen that she uses to display her tea towels.

There you have it.  I made each gift with Katz in mind and I had a blast doing it!

Thank you Rira for organizing!

I love that you have a sense of humor after going through surgery and still facing many more weeks in bed!  I will have to remember that if I ever have to face anything like that. Smiley

Do we have a gallery yet? 

Katz:  You are so welcome!  I had a blast crafting for you. Grin

Don't feel badly!  I HAD to send early (and sign up for a small swap) because I have a super long list of things to do within the next 2 weeks.  If I didn't plan ahead for this swap I wouldn't have been able to sign-up.  There are still 2 weeks left to craft.  Have fun!

I only have about 3 minutes left of crafting time until I am DONE!!!   Grin  I can't wait until I am able to send this to Katz!  I know if I was in bed after having a surgery I would love to receive packages in the mail.   Smiley
