A Day of Finishing

I have missed my sewing.

I don't know how life gets so busy that the things you really enjoy doing get set aside.  It's not that I haven't done ANY sewing over the last few months, but I haven't done much besides patching & altering & "must dos"....

So yesterday I broke the cycle! Pulled out some fabric to make myself a bag for my role as Super-Sleuth extraordinaire, Heidi Claire.

The bag turned out a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but it will do its job.  I made it reversable, so after VBS (if I really like it) I can put Heidi to the inside and still use the bag! :-)

My middle son graduated High School the beginning of June. I can't believe time went so quickly!  Thankfully I finished his quilt before graduation and so only had to re-decorate his room! It is now bright and shows his personality!

My sister got to come down and stay with us for a while.  She was such a huge help getting things ready for graduation!

I decided that I would embroider her & her girls some aprons, so I had them go thru my programs and pick out what they liked.  Here is what we ended up with:

I will post the 4 other aprons when I get a chance. Right now I need to go finish my daughters birthday present! Just one more page to go!!

    I mentioned to you before how much I enjoyed this entry and that your bag is awesome, but hopefully this time my comment will post! :-)
    Can't wait to see your next projects,

  4. I can't find the pictures I took of the other aprons ANYWHERE!! It gets confusing when I use two cameras, my phone and my iTouch for picture taking... lol


Your comments keep me stitching!
