It seems as though I went through a few weeks of not sewing much. Or not finishing much. I still have 2 quilts finished, except the binding. I just need some sitting down time for the handwork. I like this step of the binding, but I haven't had the time lately for it.
However, I am now excited to show some finished work. My friend had her sisters come to town, and we had a sewing evening. We made pin cushions. Here is mine.
That got me thinking about how many pin cushions I have. So, I collected them and took a picture to share. There are 19 pin cushions. I think I got them all. I'm not sure, though. I kept finding more, hiding in plain sight, while looking for the yellow flower-shaped one. I use a lot of them, but not all of them.
I took out all the ones I made and left then ones given to me by others. Some were made specifically for me, others I was given by chance.
A pretty nice assortment, don't you think?
Then, yesterday, I sewed up this quilt top as a sample for the store. We're selling the kits, and I really liked the panel and the fabrics. I just think it is a little big for a wall hanging (approx. 52" x 53"). I will hopefully be quilting it next week, along with 2 customer quilts, about the same size as this one.
Then, today, after weeding in the morning, fixing a nice lunch, and taking a nap, I sewed this purse for my mother-in-law. She picked out the fabric in May, and I will be seeing her next weekend, so I felt it was time to get it done. It just needs a big button on the front, and the lining sewn closed.
It looks like I have plenty to keep my hands busy tomorrow before and after church. I am not scheduled to work next week, so I hope to get plenty of sewing time in. After I do some shopping, planning for Activity Days, preparing for the weekend, etc., etc., etc. If only life could slow down a bit so I can just sew ;)
I hope you enjoy the week ahead, and maybe I'll have more to share by next weekend.
