I feel like August just came and went. That was fast.
Last month I received two lovely packages.
Autum sent me a sweet little bundle of all things green! She wrote that she saw this charm on etsy and thought of me. Is that not the nicest thing?
She also sent me some lovely Amy Butler scraps and lots of pretty ribbons. I love it all! Thanks Autum!
Heidi sent me a box of goodies, too. She put together a great pile of scraps and made me the sweetest wristlet. Darling!
And inside the pouch? Lots of vintage notions....ric rack, trims and buttons! Oh my! Thanks Heidi! You were so sweet to share your thrifting loot with me. My end of the swap will be on its way this week.
You can see what I received at the craft swap over on flickr. I got some great stuff! I am lucky to be part of such a talented group!
And up this week, the zipper tutorial. Yes, procrastination rears its ugly head again. I have it almost finished, it just needs fine tuning. Wednesday is looking like the day!
Happy Labor Day!

Such delicious fabric! I went to a fabric store this weekend (I'm making curtains) and now I see why you sewing ladies have such huge stashes. The choices are irresistible! Thankfully I can only sew straight lines. I'd be broke.

What? It is September? (I am pretending to be in denial.) I love green too! It is great that your fellow swappers know you so well! What a super idea, just might have to copy.
