First, I just want to say how much I love garage sales! My husband hit about 7 garage sales Saturday morning looking for random bargains. When he came home, he had spent less than $20 and found a kid’s table and chairs, puzzles, games, books, toys, and TWO boxes of random sewing notions!!
These were filled with zippers, lace, rick-rack, and other vintage embellishments. One batch even came in a cool biscuit tin:
Wow, time has really flown this summer! I had all these big plans for the tons of stuff I would make this summer and my list is not getting any shorter. Several projects are in various stages of completeness, and they must be finished in the next two weeks:
- Professional Tote Class Sample
- Grommet Purse Class Sample
- Civil War Tribute Quit (need to complete Blocks 9, 10, and the center medallion!)
- Tulip Purse Class Sample
As you can see, I am gearing up to teach a few purse classes this fall. I will be posting dates, times, locations in a few weeks! The other thing I am hoping to finish by the end of August is some new patterns! I know I was supposed to post something new once a month and it’s been almost 6 months. However, it does take time to write these up and do the samples :).
Finally, I saw this cool fabric called “Prairie Gothic” that I had to have. I’m not sure what I will make with it, but likely some type of bag or apron.
