Do you ever have a bit of a sewing slump following a really large project?? I feel a bit like that's what's happened to me. Finishing Fussy Fairytales was a huge accomplishment, and things have been a little slow since then. I've also been working at our school office once or twice a week lately, which doesn't sound like much, but it does affect my productivity sewing-wise!
Since I missed W.I.P. Wednesday yesterday, I'll share a few little things today instead.
This is a family passport wallet (pattern by One Shabby Chick), which I'm making for someone. These are the exact fabrics I used for the one I made for our family. I had a little run-in with the directional print yesterday and realized that the numbers on the strap will end up upside down, so I'll be re-doing the strap today!
I finally picked up Michelle's "Read Library Tote" pattern after admiring it for some time. The bag we currently use for our library books isn't big enough to hold very many books, or very large books. So I'm excited to make this tote. I have the paper pieced letters done so far and I love how they turned out.
Ever wonder how many safety pins it takes to pin baste a twin size bed quilt? Maybe I'm the only one who wonders these things.... I counted the pins I used for Fussy Fairytales and there were nearly 500!!
We had a bit of snow this week, and let me tell you it doesn't take much snow in these parts for chaos to ensue! I was working at the school yesterday and we had less than half of our students show up. Let's just say, less students at school makes things more crazy. :) So today we are happy that we have above freezing temperatures with rain. haha
And finally for today - I don't often share photos of my kids on the blog, but here they are. And looking rather mischievous I must say. :)
