Sew much to do, so little time...

Well there hasn't been too much time for sewing lately. The BF and I are getting ready to close on our first house (YAY!), so much of my free time has been packing and packing and packing some more. Isn't it just amazing how stuff just accumulates? Anyways, seems I got a bit to over-excited and packed up majority of my sewing space leaving limited access to what I can work on. It's actually been good for me since it's lead me to work on and actually finish some older projects I've started.

Case in Point.... I took 8 these:
And made this:
I think it turned out pretty good. It's my first attempt at fusing plastic bags. I did find out that the #4 bags work much better than the #2 bags to fuse. I think I have enough extra bags to make a second one, I'll have to snap some in progress shots to show you how it was constructed. I don't think I would load it up with all cans, but certainly seems pretty sturdy. (Can't you tell I love Target a bit too much.)

I also was able to quilt up and bind 3 baby quilts. Now I just have to make labels and get some better photos and get them up on my Etsy site. Probably will have to wait until after the move for that one tho...

And there is more...

So remember the other day when I was bad... well there was more, I just had to wait for it to come in the mail.

I'm quite the sucker for grab bags.... I just love the thrill of the surprise. This is 10 - 1/2 yard cuts of Westminster fabrics.

Here is some more clearance Amy Butler... I'm thinking one or both might make a good skirt.

Can't resist the owls!!!

I swear the one in the middle should have been yellow - at least that's how it looked on my computer screen.

These were suppose to be able to go with my car quilt, wrong colors tho... guess the hunt is still on.

How could I not get the plaid cars?

I got a great deal, I swear!
