We had a good weekend over here. And I got a few things done.
First, as I mentioned I joined the Mouthy Stitches swap on Flickr. We had to make a zippy pouch for our secret partner based on their mosaic posted in the group. My partner definitely favoured applique and pinks and blues.
This is my pouch for her.

The back is just for fun.
|I'm even proud of the zipper!|
I have never done applique in my life, and so this is a first for me. I think it turned out pretty good.
I only showed sneak peeks on Flickr for everyone to see, so if anyone is here from the Mouthy Stitches swap - lucky you! You just saw my whole surprise!
But... is it for you?
I appliqued cotton on a linen type fabric and I embroidered the steam and picture frame.
I love my special touch - the tea bag is appliqued on tea dyed fabric.
Sometimes, I make me happy.
Sunday is always a nice day. How can it be bad when you have church, family and friends all in one day?
I was also at West Edmonton Mall on Saturday selling my wares. I had my dresses and skirts up for display along with a few things my sister had made. All in all, I think for a first showing, I did acceptably well. Nothing to be disappointed in this time!

Then to top it all off, I received two swaps today! One all the way from Portugal and the other from the States. I love good mail days.
Told you I had a good weekend!
