Progress and Work in Progress
Well, it has been a week of sewing and sitting by the pool. I'm sitting by the pool because Nolan has joined the swim team and he has practice every morning. He truly loves the team and he has the greatest coaches ever. I am really excited for him. His first meet is tomorrow and he is a little nervous. He is swimming freestyle and the backstroke which he has just learned. Diving is really new to him as well so I've been really proud at how hard he's been working.I have a real hatred of having extra stuff. That includes extra pieces of fabric lying around. I didn't want to throw it away so I figured I'd start sewing. I had enough of the fabric I used on those large totes to make some mini totes. I also made these oven mitts and a set of coasters. I now have lots and lots of bags hanging across the doorknobs in my sewing room. How do I store all of this stuff? Everything is for sale in my shop. Now how do I get buyers???Finally, I decided to finish off some of the quilt tops I've made in the past. I'm working on quilting the stained glass quilt I showed you here and here. This bottom picture is a quilt top I made not too long ago in an effort to use up this Toile fabric I bought about three years ago for two baby quilts. I'm not a fan of Toile and really wanted to get rid of the fabric. This quilt top is very wrinkled but you get the picture.
