My box is ready to go!

After all the nerves and fretting...I am happy to announce that my Covert Robin package is in the mail!  Even a few days early.  I am looking forward to telling you all about this fun project and I am hopeful that my Robin will like it!

The suspense is killing me!

I can hardly wait to share this really cute project I am making for my Covert Robin!  (What's a Covert Robin?  See description here).  I was really stressed about it... but the Queen Mum and I found an amazing pattern and then I found AMAZING fabric from my favorite quilting store...and now it is all coming together!  Wheeeeee!  It is one of those times when I am really pleased with the progress and I think the final product will be fabulous!

Off to the Intergalatic Sewing Headquarters to finish up.

Freaking out about gift swap!

I signed up for the Covert Robin gift swap with Rachael of Imagine Gnats.  I was excited when I signed up.  I am now freaking out.

First of all, I got an excellent pick for my gift recipient, but it will be a little intimidating to send her something.  I have spent a lot of time reviewing her blog (she clearly loves aqua and red) and thinking about what will best highlight my crafting prowess.  I am coming up with a big ZERO.  What do you make for someone who designs patterns for all the stuff you like to make?  AAACK!

I can't wait for an epiphany or divine intervention.  This stuff is "due" in a few weeks and I am gone all week for work.  I have decided to go to my personal sewing mecca and hope that there is something fabulous that jumps off the shelf at me.   Short of that, I will be making her a dyed macaroni necklace.
