I haven't been able to dig into my swap projects this week due to my eyes still recovering from Tuesday's LASIK procedure. I did manage to get some things accomplished, though. I am making a few aprons out of the "A is for Apron" book--I have the fabric picked out (pending my partner's preferences )for the Independence Day themed Flirty Apron Swap and patterns ready for three. I also (once again) got my craft area organized and was SO pleased to get my peg board installed today (what a handyman my husband is!). Whipped up a couple of dog collars out of Amy Carol's Bend the Rules Sewing book that I'm so fond of these days (I finally broke down and bought my very own copy). My mom's dog, Hans, is modeling one in the photo. My peonies are out in full bloom right now and I am just loving it. The light pink ones are probably 60+ years old and were transplanted from a very dear childhood neighbor's yard (thanks Mom!). Jackson and I put this plant together for his Grandma who had surgery recently. Jackson had so much fun arranging all the button "stakes." I think it turned out so cute.
