Spicing up the Kitchen: Sent

Now that my partner has received her swap items, I can share the full details. My partner for Spicing up the Kitchen was Natalie. Natalie asked for black and white items with touches of yellow and red. She seemed excited about her package, so I feel really good about my swap items.

Besides the apron I showed you, I also made her a teatowel with embroidery and patchwork. The embroidery is from Sublime Stitching, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out.

I will definitely be embroidering more in the future. In fact, I've already started a new project. It's a cat; she's wearing a fur coat. Awesome.

Potholder for SUtK swap

I also made Natalie this potholder, using some scraps and a piece of Ruby Star Rising teacups for the front.
