I belong to a wonderful forum, and as part of it we decided to do a Happy Mailer swap. Basically we each make something for another person, and they in turn make something for us. It could be housewares, or baby/child things etc
I had the pleasure of making something for the lovely Mrs Potter at Pottering About, and she made me some gorgeous things. Go and have a look at her blog to see.
I've made a food carrier, for when you go to potluck dinners and such, to carry your plate, bowl, casserole dish etc in. Yes, it's a little retro, and perhaps bordering on daggy, but that's me!
