for example, today i cut out several projects. i did a little sewing on them, but mostly got everything cut and pinned, ready to sew. so i have a stack of items, grouped by color of thread they will need, ready for the next time i get to sit down and play. what am i making? well, there are three more cage comforters for the animal shelter, as well as one buttercup bag i am making for myself (so excited about this, it's gonna be fab!), and a bib for baby. i usually have a notebook or two sitting there as well.
before i got to all those, i did manage to wrap up a project or two. i finally finished a pillow for emma's room. i made the quilt block at least a year ago, and it's just sat there, looking cute. so i finished it off, using a pillow form i bought for something else months ago. this was my first time making an envelope flap thingy on the back - came out okay, but it's not as snug as i'd have liked it. maybe that's good? i don't remember at this point if i prewashed the fabrics, so maybe there will be some shrinking and i'll be glad for the wiggle room. anyways. done. yay.
i also finished a cloth book for a baby shower this weekend. it was one of those pre-printed panel books, a mary englebreit nursery rhymes. very cute, bright yellow borders. i haven't taken any pics yet, but for $4.44 it came out pretty sweet. i found one online here, but i bought mine at walmart.
ok now i am off to bed. very sleepy these days!
