Retired For The Week

Updated: Jul 18

As I mentioned last week, for a change, I am not traveling for the next six weeks. I am of the age where I should be retired but life doesn't always give us what we want so I am still out there traveling around selling my wares. But this week I got a glimpse of what it would be like to stay at home and get some things done. Below is a day by day account of what I achieved.

I started my sewing week on Wednesday Here we go:


I had pieced this table covering for my sister earlier but completed the quilting today. Now I have to figure out just exactly where I put that fabric for the binding. As of Monday of this week I still have not found it.

We will see.....

As I mentioned before I have quite a few showers that I am hosting this summer so these fobs are some of the shower gifts I made.

I picked out fabric for some bags I will be making tomorrow. I realize I am definitely over my black and white period.


Wrote my class description for a Quick Christmas Gift class I am teaching in the fall.

I was given this bag when I was in Hawaii doing the Indulge Retreat. I love this bag so that I took it to see how it was sewn. I will be using it as a class going forward.

Found this great pattern for pin cushions when I was at the Reno Show. I just couldn't wait to make them.
