Covert Robin...

I am not sure if I mentioned earlier but I signed up for The Covert Robin Swap, hosted by the lovely Rachael over at Imagine Gnats. With my back being out, I haven't been able to stand or sit for very long, which pretty much takes away from sewing. All my projects I planned on getting done by the end of March are pretty much no-goes at the moment. Then the other day I had a thought that I should check on all my current swap dates. Most of which I've sent out except the last two that I thought I had until the end of May to complete. Of course, when I confirmed those dates, I was off by two months for the Covert Robin. The end date was March 31!! So of course I kicked myself and then spent the past few days making these bright and fun pillows for my partner. Pillows are normally something I can get done in one afternoon, but no, this took 3 afternoons. Stupid back. Anyway, my partners taste in fabric is a bit eclectic and I just happened to have these Lucky Penny charms; that I hadn't a clue what to use them for! So now I'm back on track for swaps and I'm just having to "let it go" on not getting my other projects done by the end of the month for the Finish-A-Long link up. That is, unless by some miracle my back heals by tonight and I can spend the weekend sewing non-stop! Yeah right. But if I do, there will be one heck of a Monday Progress update next week!!
