What I've Been Working On Lately

I was in Val's Alice in Wonderland Apron Swap and I actually got my package out BEFORE the deadline. That is quite an accomplishment for me! So anyway, here's what I made for my secret partner.

My version of the Queen of Hearts apron.
The hearts on the pocket are some that I crocheted.

An Alice in Wonderland patchwork bag for tea party goodness.

Heart shaped hotpads to take the cookies out of the oven
and crocheted dishcloths to wash the dishes after the party.

I also sent my partner some sprinkles for the cookies and tea for the tea party.
I also included some Alice in Wonderland little gift cards, a Mad Hatter Pin and
a Queen of Hearts iron on.

I hope my partner likes everything. I had so much fun making everything!
