Tuesday Treasure Trove

Things of Note:

I finished my very first solo, with-machine sewing project, and am ridiculously excited/proud of it. It’s just some pillows, with screenprints on them. But I sewed them myself! Successfully! I’ll have a sewing update w/ pics later this week, I just have to wait until after the recipient gets them in the mail, since they are a gift and I want her to see them in person before seeing them on the blog.

I had another great clothes swapping experience with Austin Clothes Exchange this past weekend. 🙂

Getting excited about the Zelda Symphony later this month – woohoo!

I received the first letter from my Lovely Letters penpal! I love getting mail. Except now I don’t know whether I’m supposed to write her back right away, since I also wrote her a letter and she might be responding to that, in which case our letters would cross and it’d be all confusing…Conundrum. But on the upside, I bought the CUTEST stationery on Etsy, so I’ll have pretty stuff to write on. 🙂

I’m scheming things to put in the box I’m sending to my Foodie Pen Pal, and I hope she likes it.
