I really like this Saturday night church thing. It allows me to sleep in on Sunday mornings. This morning it was 6:30 - woohoo! It's just nice to not have to rush one day a week.
I have barely touched my sewing machine since mid-Spring. Today I was finally able to devote a day to sewing. And my house and I are covered in loose threads to prove it. I sew like I cook - all over the place!
I'm in need of some gifts in the upcoming months and so badly wanted to hand make them. Well, one gift is now almost finished. All I have to do yet is quilt and put the binding on.
It's a Halloween runner that I made completely out of the stash of fabric & scraps I had on hand. I bought the panel which I cut the pumpkin squares from years ago and couldn't ever decide what to do with it. Today I finally cut it up. There are 18 different squares.
There are 5 small pumpkin square panels and two strips of wording from the panel, the rest is pieced.
This is my favorite square.
I also put this bag together this morning. I saw the tutorial on SewMamaSew! and had to try it out. It went together pretty quick.
A few of these would be great to use as grocery bags. Now, before you think I'm getting all "green-like", I just get tired of all the plastic bags. Seriously, how many does a person really need to keep?
The only thing I use them for is the grandkids dirty diapers!
I know, I know, way more information than you needed, right?
Anyway, the bag is great, check out the tutorial.
