Ok! Since we haven't heard back from ReLovely, I'm going to post pics of her angel package. Warning: photo heavy!  Grin

ReLovely said she's been going camping and fishing a lot lately. So I made her a couple of Sit-Upons, one with camping flannel and one with toasty flannel! (Ok, really more of a PB&J flannel, but still! bread-shaped objects!) The other side of each Sit-Upon is an old picnic tablecloth that got ripped one day, so I repurposed it!





She also said she likes aprons, so I took this (never been used) apron that I had in my stash and toastified it:




Toast loves Butter!  Smiley

Then I made a new liner for a little wicker basket, perfect for a loaf of bread! (but she can use it however she wants - it has her extras in it in this shot)


Next, as she said she's doing a lot more photography lately, I made a padded camera strap cover:


And as she lives up in Alaska, I thought she might need a little lap blanket to keep TOASTY warm, so I made this jeans/flannel frayed quilt. As she uses, and washes, it, the blanket will just get softer and softer and more fringe-y/frayed on the edges of each seam (deliberately made for that to happen)  The jeans are from a carpenter friend of mine - these jeans have seen it all, as he is a carpenter for theaters all over the city. Rock concerts, opera, ballet, Gilbert&Sullivan, symphony, you name it, they've been there and built that!  So I made sure to include one of the hole-y knees on the quilt, too.  Grin (I put a patch behind it and sewed around it to stabilize it - didn't want the blanket to fall completely apart there!)





And then the extras!



-Silverware, because she collects it.
-Chocolate stack is: Theo Chocolate's Bread bar, Seattle Chocolate's Boysenberry bar, and Espresso bar. Get it? Toast, jam, and coffee! Smiley It's a Breakfast of Chocolate! Smiley

And these cute magnets (there's a monster eating toast in the set):


And this cute pocket mirror:



I feel like I'm forgetting something but I think that's all of it!

 Cheesy
