Very Busy Week!!

Be prepared this is a photo heavy post!!  I've been very busy this week and it feels good no make that great!! I've spent most every evening in my sewing room and have produced some very nice things.  The first thing I accomplished was a Twisted Christmas Wall Hanging

Then from the scraps I created the mini version

Same process so I didn't take as many pictures of this one.

Then I decided to make some mini composition notebook covers, I purchased this material several years ago at a flea market and really hadn't decided what I wanted to do with it so I used some of it for these

I think they turned out very cute, I'm planning on making more with different fabrics for a craft bazaar I'm doing the end of October.

Now I'm working on birthday presents for my 2 youngest nephews, well not the 2 youngest any more we got a new addition to the family yesterday evening, Mr. Aiden Charles Roberts arrived about a week early so it postponed his older brother and cousins birthday party for a week or so.  Now I have 3 nephews and 2 nieces under the age of 5.  I also have 2 older nephews, 1 is 21 and the other is 18 soon to be 19.  I have several more nieces and nephews on my husband's side of the family but these 7 are from my brothers and sister.  It's so fun to enjoy them but not as much fun as my grandson who should be coming sometime today for me to spoil.

Well until next time,

Finally Some Sewing Going On!!

Well finally I've gotten some sewing done! Not a lot but at least something.  I had been wanting a bigger cross body bag to carry so I looked at several on line to get some dimentions that I like and this is what I came up with

It's approximately 11" X 12 1/2" and is just the right length to fit right on my  hip.  I have another purse started but not quite finished I'll share it when I finally get it finished.  I have also been working on a quilt for my grandson Silas, the top is all pieced and I got it all sandwiched together yesterday, now just to find the time to sit at the sewing machine and get it quilted.  Hopefully that will happen this week as it looks like a pretty quiet week but we shall see if it stays that way.

Until next time,
