Before I show you the goodies I received in the Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap, I wanted to tell you that I think I'm back from my blogging break. It was nice to take time away from the obligations I'm constantly putting on myself. The biggest reason for taking a break was that I was so sick and couldn't stand to think about sewing. You see, the mister and I are expecting our third little bundle of joy. February was full of dry heaves and nausea, but now that I've entered my second trimester, I'm feeling much better (even if I do still gag at the drop of a hat - or the eating habits of my four-year-old). My sister borrowed my sewing machine for a week and a half and then it was off to the repair shop for a good cleaning and tune-up. I'm picking it up today and am excited to get back in some sewing action, especially since my to-do list is getting out of control, but more on that later. Now to show off the cute things Andrea (Knitty bitties) sent me.
Here are all the goodies, fresh from the package I opened on Friday.
A cute table runner featuring half-square triangle pinwheels.
A farm apron that thankfully fits around my belly. (Love those dots on the ties!)
Some adorable stationary cards, which I've already put to good use as a birthday card for my mom. Andrea included a matching cupcake stamp that I didn't get a solo picture of because my two-year-old daughter claimed the stamp the second I opened the package.
Thanks so much, Andrea! I love it all.
