I have been working on inventory for an upcoming craft sale.  It was a very productive day, as you can see.

Along with my purses I have made a while ago, here is the collection of iPad covers and journals, some matching sets.  The sets I am hoping will encourage people to purchase together.  It is a wide variety of fabrics, but I hope it will entice purchases.

I had set up fabric choices to make more, but my health has kept me from sewing as much as I would have liked.

Cross your fingers!

A new technique and friendship

I am absolutely in love with the binding technique!  And it does not require handwork as long as you match the bobbin thread to the back and the top thread to the "piping."  You can learn about it here:

I have to say that I had to send this one out for quilting since I was not in good health.  It came out beautifully.

This piece is from my quilting friends from New Jersey.  They gave it to me after my recent surgery as a get well gift.  Not sure you can see their signatures.  I am so grateful for the support of my friends and family.  It hangs in my sewing room for inspiration.
