today is TEA-rrific!



my fanwy wanted to see what the back of the button inchies looked like.  here’s a shot of a li’l something i’m making for the midsummer’s vintage tea cup swap…at first it was tricky get those pinbacks in the collet (that’s the metal rim holding the button pieces together) as i kept getting pricked by the teeny tiny, but sharp, pin points (i wonder if that is how acupuncture feels like?).  i’ve gotten the hang of it though & i’ve been able to whip ’em in there without a sting. 

4stephy4030.jpg  i actually had found my vintage tea cup & mismatched saucer way before i knew who my partner was going to be.  i also found this retro paisley apron that i thought my partner would like.  {stephanie, i know that you visit my blog from time to time.  i just couldn’t resist giving you a sneak peek 🙂 }…   


i’m still working on her little swap gifties…but these are the “meat” of the package.  i have other little whatnots to add, but i will save those for a surprise.


4s4.jpg  i just wanted to let you know that i appreciate your kind & supportive words regarding my rant below.  i was letting off some boiled-over steam…i’m over it now & concentrating on whipping up all kinds of loveliness for some very dear folks.  so much going on this week…completing wips, mailing parcels to all sorts of blog/flickr pals & getting ready for the BIG birthday weekend blow-out in chi-town (will be celebrating my sister looney’s & dh’s birthdays).  oh my, look at how fast time flies…i’ve gotta scoot & get crack-a-lacking!  happy 1st day of summer!!  xoxo
