Hi. Well it has been a bit since I last posted. Life has been busy lately. I am still crocheting. In fact I finished my 1st Shawl. It was so much fun and easy to make. I have begun another one. This one and the one after that are going to be birthday gifts. I know I know I said this was to be ny selfish hobby. Boy was I in denial!

I am still sewing. In fact I am in the midst of my biggest project yet. A bag to contain my yarn stash. Of course I can not take the easy path. I am making it a patchwork bag. It contains 5 different fabrics. I am cutting them so they are 10 inches long by 6 inches wide. Seriously wondering if I am insane.

I also have an order for an apron. And just yesterday I was asked to make a band to hold an ostomy bag in place for one of the sweetest 4 year olds I know.

Hope your enjoying your Saturday

Sewing has taken a back seat as of late. I have been so focused on crocheting that I almost forgot about sewing. I woke up this morning itching to plan a sewing project. So off I went to visit my fabric stash.  I am going to make a bag of sorts that will help contain my yarn stash.
I also am going to make an apron for a customer. This excites me and also stresses me. It is for the woman I made the Piggy Toy Bag for. I am under no time constraint….Just my own. This has been months in planning as we chose a fabric that had not yet been released. Well finally it was released and I found it on sale!!!
I have been taking pictures like crazy lately. 4th of July, A sunset and a trip to a nature preserve. I will post pictures later in the week.
I am attending my first Reading Invasion tomorrow and an so excited!!!!
Have a Beautiful Monday!!!

1st Quilted Apron

I made this for a very dear person to me. She was so happy to get this

I picked up this quilted fabric yesterday. Tomorrow I will be making an apron from it. If I am extremely careful with my stitching it could be a reversible apron.
This is a gift for a woman who has always been like a mother to me. Her favorite color is people and she is an avid gardener. Hope she likes it!

My friend was very happy with the apron!! Which makes me even happier than I was before. This was the first thing I made to order and charged for it. I was nervous about telling her how much I wanted for it. She was so happy she gave me more than I was asking!!!!
I will definitely make this again.
