This week my big project has been finishing the details of and hostessing a bridal shower for a good friend. In addition, I have been attending to the grind-y parts of business: packaging and shipping orders, corresponding about payment options/problems with Paypal, giving estimates for custom work, and communicating with photography clients. Whew. Plus I had the opportunity to spend most of one day doing stuff with my husband (attending a presentation by an intern he's been supervising, eating out for lunch, doing some shopping...who could pass up an offer like that?). All that to say that I've had a full and busy week, though I haven't done a lot of serious crafting.
Last week, however, I was able to complete a small alteration job (not so interesting that I took the time to photograph it), make a bit of progress on Brother's big boy quilt, and sew a pair of bibs for my new niece. I love making upcycled denim bibs; they're inexpensive, adorable, and practical (stains hardly show, and they are very durable). The backs of these particular bibs is a sparkley pink and purple stripe print. The front of one is decorated with a trio of pink and purple appliquéd hearts, and the other with white rick-rack and pink and purple flower buttons.
(Sadly, the lighting was poor, and you can't see just how cute the pinks and purples were.)
I was delighted to be able to package the bibs up along with the blanket and hat I had made and four tiny flower hair clips and to send them off for my brother- and sister-in-law to use when their little one arrives. It has to be one of the most satisfying sensations to gift things I have made lovingly with my own hands.
Linking up with Jennifer's Studio Sneak Peek today. (Hooray! I actually wrote my sneak peak friday post on Friday this week!) : )
