Sewing thearpy

Some ladies go have massage, some go shopping, others read.....I stayed in my PJ's and sewed until 1420 (2:30 pm) yesterday. It felt so great. Made me wonder why I get dressed at all. I got so much done. Look at all I did!

I finished this Hero Bag for a fallen Marines' mother. It is an Amber purse made with Joel Dewberry fabric.


This bag is one of my newest designs. It is a knitting bag and will be auctioned on http://www.hyenacart.com/selah with several skeins of yarn. Lisa will have some more info on her Blog. I have never done a joint auction like this before....we will see how it goes. I dig this bag though. So much detail. I used Amy Butler's new Midwest Modern fabric collection. Several of you have selected the pinks from this line for your bags and they are great together.


Oh these pictures are out of order...oh well. I don't know how to fix that. This is a Hero Quilt I am working on for a little girl. Her father was a Marine. I am going to add a narrow white boarder then stack and quilt it.


This is the inside of the quilting bag. 2 big, quilted interior pockets, 2 knitting needle slots, I wrote one of my grandmother's favorite idioms on the biggest interior pocket "Idle hands are the Devil's tools". There are better pictures on my Flickr Bag Gallery. More to come on when this auction will take place.

Anyway, I was pretty excited about my productivity yesterday, so I wanted to share. I did all the above yesterday! See, I am back in the game! Wahoo!
