In my Sewing Room This Week

Hi everyone. Happy Friday!

Frugal Friday and Sew Crafty Friday are on break for a while, so I thought I'd just show you what's laying on my sewing machine table this morning:

I'm not sure how I'm going to use The "Jesus Loves You" crosstitch. My original plan was to make a child's pillow or totebag, but this crosstitch turned out a little smaller than I intended. I think it would make a cute hanging door pillow for a child's room or a small totebag or small pillow. I hope to work on this this weekend.

The Fall fabric laying beneath everything is going to be another reusable grocery bag for my Etsy Shop. I made two more clothespin bags and two more grocery bags last weekend which are in my Etsy Shop on the right side bar if you want to see them.

Also, I got out my box of Christmas fabric this week and have plans to start making Christmas projects. I bought some beautiful Debbie Mumm Christmas fabric at the after Christmas sales this past January and hope to make Christmas Pocketbooks to sell.

Whew!!! I just have too many sewing projects and too little time!!!

I'm looking forward to a great Autumn weekend. Can't wait!

Your sewing table looks so inviting with your projects just waiting to be finished! I love the new fabric in the background. Can't wait to see the Debbie Mumm pocketbooks!

Found it!

I joined in today. I hope that Shereen is back, too!

Those little cross-stitch projects are so cute. Maybe you could put it in a tiny frame?

Glad to see your Etsy shop is up and running again. I'll be visiting soon! I'm also working on Christmas projects, but first trying to finish up my own clothes. I'll probably post about that for SCF today.

I need to get sewing again. This post makes me want to get at it!

Could you use the cross-stitch for a pocket on the front of a tote bag?

I know just what you mean about having so many projects! I have so many and then I will see something on a blog and think I need to add that to my to do list too!

I can use the printer at my office for any printing I want and I have printed off so many tutorials from blogs.

I think we both need to retire so we can keep with up our sewing.
