I have two crafty birthday stories to share with you today! First off, my bloggy friend, Maria, who lives down under has a birthday today (only it was really yesterday there, because it's already tomorrow.... got it?). Maria & I have been swapping crafty gifts for a couple of years now, and we decided this year we would make each other pillow covers for our birthdays. You can see the one she made me, months ago, here. I mailed hers off with some other goodies a month or so ago and realized I didn't take any pictures of it! So, while Maria is happily sleeping the Australian night away, I stole her picture off of her blog. I hope she doesn't mind!
I English paper pieced her pillow topper with elongated hexies. The little candle mat is made with wool felt. I always have so much fun gathering goodies for my crafty friends! I hope Maria has a wonderful year.
Speaking of crafty friends, Raquel threw herself a crafty birthday party today! Her birthday is on Saturday (Happy Birthday my friend!)
She got some fun gifts, cards and gift cards. I made this little strawberry pin cushion to put on top of her package. I kept seeing them all over blogland & thought they were so cute!
We all made fat quarter aprons at Raquel's party. I love mine!
What are you making today?
