Friday Night Sew In Results

My Friday Night Sew In has turned into a Saturday Morning Sew In both times I have participated! Although I did cut out and sew a little on the apron last night, I did the majority of the work on it this morning. I was just too tired to work on it past 8:00 last night.

I had no one to take a picture, so I took this one in the bathroom mirror:

You can see the other side of the apron in this picture.

I have some small scraps of this fabric left and am thinking of making myself a lunch bag from them later today. I have been taking my lunch on a regular basis for a while now and am tired of using plastic grocery bags to pack them in.

Have a great Saturday! Its going to be 100 degrees or more here today with a heat index of 115, so I will definitely be inside!

Fourth of July Sewing and a Quilt Finish!

I made this "Jungle Babies Two" quilt top during June's Friday Night Sew In. This weekend I pin basted it, machine quilted it, made the binding and sewed the binding on. These pictures were taken early this Monday morning.

I made this little quilted tote bag/purse Thursday night. Its hanging on one of the old doorknobs in the farmhouse.

I hope to do more sewing today and tomorrow while I am still off work.

A couple of quilting smiles for you today:

Quilting forever.... housework whenever!

A clean house is a sign of a broken sewing machine!
