Today is Fresh Sewing Day!
As I look back over August, I’m happy I finished a few things.
I finished two quilts for my girls. The first one was the Children at Play quilt for my youngest. I think all the time spent deciding on what to do with it was well worth it.
The second quilt, an ABC quilt, was for my eldest. With the uncommon animals, we are both learning quite a bit from this quilt.
Just before my daughter started pre-K, I finished the nap mat covers I had promised her preschool. There’s no picture of them as they weren’t very interesting to photograph. If you picture big, blue pillowcases with ties, you’ll have a good idea of what they looked like.
I also made a bag using Amy Butler’s Market Tote pattern. It’s big enough to fit my cutting mat and other sewing supplies for when I head to a class or sew-in.
Then there are the string blocks that I’m plugging away at for my commissioned quilt. 75 done. 69 to go!
August was a good sewing month for me. How about you?
