A NEW SEWING STREAK STARTED

Well our reunion went off without a hitch and a good turnout made for a pleasant afternoon....i took cinnamon rolls and only came home with 2 out of a big pan...enough for my breakfast Labor Day....always nice to have rolls for a weekend breakfast...that goes back to my childhood memories...mom and dad would get groceries on saturday and always made a trip to the bakery for goodies to have for sunday breakfast.....nice memory....

last weeek before Labor Day i decided to make a bag to carry my sewing hexies, thread and blocks i was working on with me when i go places....dug deep in the cabinet and found somethig perfect for what i wanted....
At the reunion my sister in law tried to convince me to make more and offer them for sale....i scoffed at it so far although i may be making some for my daughter to give as small Christmas gifts....she hasn't decided on that yet, hope she dont wait too long...

After baking the rolls on last Tuesday i decided tomake french bread....there was a motive there...i didn't want to go to the store because i was out of bread and break my momentum of sewing so i thought i could make bread and sew between times to take care of the bread....as you can tell by the picture part of the loaf is gone lol...made good toast, french toast , etc....before its done i will probably make some seasoned croutons to finish it off...it will also be good to have with my spaghetti this week....
What was I sewing on? well i was looking at some fall fabric in the cabinet and decided tomake my other daughter a table topper...she hasn't gotten a hexie one yet like my other daughter and my sons gf so she is over due for hers....i had been collecting oranges, browns and reds lately so i had what i needed to just dive right in and get started...and this is the outcome waiting for backing and batting and to be machine quilted then a brown binding on the outside..

it is the biggest one i have made to date but i am sure i will be making more....the size is 35 inches in dia....her table is 48 so it will be a good size for it....

the wall hanging i was working on last week is all done and hung now in the bathroom but the wall still needs more....so i am thinking of making a 'quilt' wall and the next one will be narrow and longer to fit the wall...it will balance it out i think....now to find what i want to use for pattern....that will be the hard part...lol....

i have been quilting on a quilt i started last Tuesday....got it quilted in 4 days and i am sewing the binding on today....i should be done with it tonight....picture will follow after i get done....

got some cooking i need to do to have on hand so i dont have to stop and do it when i am in middle of sewing.... mac salad seems like a good selection for one thing and will be quick to eat....i just hate to stop when i get a good run of sewing lol....speaking of running i gotta go get busy then find a good movie to watch while i finish that quilt.....more later.....

  1. Your bag and table topper turned out great! Love that you can make bread. Mine comes from the bread machine. It is sort of homemade! Have a great weekend.
