I've caught up on all of my swaps ...... so yes, we're back on track!!!
Let me first share with you the octopus I made for August's YOE swap...... I was quite spoilt for choice - too spoilt in fact - it made choosing which one to make a long, drawn out affair. I eventually settled on this crocheted one, and I am happy with the way he turned out. I especially love the way his legs curl....... and who could resist those sparkly, blue eyes:-)
Next thing I have to show you, is the apron I made for the Flirty Apron Swap - the theme was Back To The Future!!!!My partner requested a 50's apron. I wanted to do something in keeping with the 50's but at the same time a little different. I found 4 linen dish towels on clearance at World Market. Lucky for me 2 of them had a vintage wine label printed on them .... and the vintage.... 1951!!! So the pile of 4 dish towels (the weight of the fabric is fantastic), became this lovely apron!!! I hope my partner likes it, together with the other goodies I sent (1 from the 1950's, 1 from the 1980's and 1 from the 21st century).
The picture doesn't really do it justice ...... I loved it!!!
So that's what I've been up to over the past few weeks.
