Right now, on my sewing table is everything but the sewing machine (which is currently underneath the table)--my iron, my cutting mat, a few rulers, a few fabrics (I am just starting the cutting on 3 quilts). Oh, and some stabilizer and my box of embroidery threads. I think I need another table LOL.
At this very moment there is a shirt that I am making for one of my grandsons. My daughter took him to a great quilt store in Northridge, CA (I think) called Candy's and told him to pick out a few prints he liked for some new button down shirts for school. I may have already mentioned this. He picked out six prints before she told him enough already. So now I have two done, one nearly and three more to go. I just finished five skirts for my daughter and a top.
Like some of you I had to take a break and clean today. It sure messes up quickly. But now I can breathe and get something accomplished. I want to get all this done and start on a quilt or two and some other things that I want to make for Christmas gifts. Oh the pressure.
I made this yesterday for my grand daughter, and I bought fabric today to make one for one of my grandsons. I plan to make one each pay day until I have 8 of them for Christmas for all of my grandkids. Pillow beds for nap time or TV time.
The other thing on my table... I'm cutting 7 inch charms from tons of fabric scraps to make an I SPY quilt for one of my grandsons. It's his turn to get one, four grandkids got them for Christmas, and two had their already. He wants one so badly.
Right now, my cat is on the sewing table. He needs to get down.
Working on a garden theme wall hanging.
all are beautiful. Love that pillow idea. I just finished this Raggedy Ann for my GD for Christmas. She always wants to take mine home with her when she is here so I made her one. I am making three dresses. Here are two of them
Raggdy Anns are cute! !
