Lists and blog posts are my saving grace this summer! And maybe Pinterest! LOL!!
When I need a little inspiration to get things done, I just check out what I said I would finish, and then get 'er done!!
So I posted this picture on Wednesday…
Wednesday night, it became this:
There is something to be said for the presence of order in our lives!!! When my attitude about cleaning gets rough (don't ask my kids about that, please!!), I usually say, "God is not a God of chaos!!!" (My kids will confirm that quote for sure!!) It was delightful to wake up to this gorgeousness of color on Thursday morning!
What else did I finish this week?
Three out of four projects using Bonnie and Camille's April Showers Charm Pack:
Stay tuned for a lovely announcement about these and one other project coming on Sunday!!!
And my last finish for today (well, I'm going to be sewing the rest of the day, and I hope to have a bunch more finishes today!! LOL!!) is Cora's MacBook Pro case:
These fabrics (top by Bonnie Christine and the bottom by JeniB – both from Art Gallery) became this:
I didn't use a pattern. I did use high-density foam to keep the laptop protected!
I love the lining!
And I learned how to put these kind of pockets in using a BariJ wallet pattern last year. I love it when I can use a new technique over and over!! 🙂 Especially when that technique dispels the fear of zippers! ♥
My teals and reds are crying out to me!! 🙂 Off to sew!
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE summer????
Linking up to crazy mom quilts Finish It Up Friday.
