Craft Lockdown progress report

I feel like I've been away forever and honestly I can't talk long. Just popped in to let you all know how it's going. Last week I had a raging cold, the kind of cold you can only get from babies and small children (I got mine from a baby, but it was the cutest cold I've ever had!), so I didn't want to work but I did. I also napped but, hey, I had a cold! Here's what I've completed thus far:

2 Large embroidered pillow covers for 20"x20" down pillows
2 Yellow and 1 green Gocco printed and appliqued pillows
2 Log pillows
2 Clutch purses
2 Large tote bags (both new designs!)

Not bad for a sick girl! De La Soul said that 3 was a magic number (well, technically the School House Rock! folks said it first) but I really think that 2 was the it number last week.

I also finished a project for the fall Adorn Magazine and took care of general business type things. Yea me!

Speaking of Adorn and yea me. . . I have a project in the Summer issue as well! It's an absolutely adorable skirt with embroidered postcards appliqued onto it. I'm very proud of it and the Adorn folks took some lovely close up shots of my work so you can see all my OCD stitch work in it's full glory!

That's all for now! I'll take some pictures of the progress and post them soon.

Oh! If you're in the New York City area this Saturday you should really come by the NYC Craft Mafia's craft swap. It promises to be much fun, much fun indeed!
