A Few More Sewing Projects



Some of you asked for photos of what I've been sewing. Top is a simple curtain for our closet, made from an old sheet. I topstitched some green ribbon near the bottom. I love the way the light plays through it. (I've also sewn some other simple curtains, but these are the most photo-worthy!) I also sewed six simple envelope pillow covers for the sofa pillows, using redtag decorator-weight fabric from Joann's. I'd never done this before, and it was easier and more rewarding than I expected. What projects are you working on?

How pretty. It almost makes me want to get out my sewing machine...almost. lol

I'm happy you are finding satisfaction with your projects. As I work on some counted cross stitching I'm enjoying the distraction from all the negativity in the news and it gives me some contemplation time.

what project... well I just took a photo of your beautiful hand made card that I hope to include in a post soon! I've been taking photos of the handmade things in my house that others have made for me. That's a mini project I guess.

I'm currently not doing any hand crafting myself, life is too full with homeschooling and helping my kiddos with their projects, photography, blogging, cooking, and home care. But I have been blessed by others' handiwork and I'm enjoying that.
