Sewing and sewing...

I've been preoccupied with sewing for an Arts & Crafts fair.  Fair was this weekend and finished lots of stuff. We also raised money for Camp Hope - I made a quilt which will be raffled off this coming weekend.

 My booth.

Hanging accessories keepers (5 pockets).

Microwave cozy bowls.

With bowls in the cozies. 

And banners!

A little project...

My niece asked if I could make some more burp cloths for her baby, my grand-niece.  Sure!  Found some leftover flannel, bought a couple inexpensive towels, and viola! New burp cloths! She did ask me not to make the "notch" for the shoulder that I'd done for the other burp cloths I made her. So both sides are straight.


1 and 1/2 yards of fabric
1 spool of leftover thread

Since people found out I can sew (and quilt)...

I've been doing some commissioned sewing and quilting!

A customer gave me an apron and asked me to make 3 copies of the style in Christmas fabric. She left the choice of fabric up to me. I made 3 identical aprons from Mary Englebreit's Christmas Cookies fabric.

I also made 3 identical aprons from Robert Kaufmann's Christmas Recipe Card Collection.  The customer now has two choices. The remaining aprons will go into my Etsy shop. 


4 spools of various threads leftover from other projects.
