In the next few days I hope to start on a new bag, so I'm looking forward to that. I'm also planning to list some sewing patterns on ebay and maybe on Etsy. Then I'll make more pillowcases. ; )

Here's a little detail from the apron.

My dd made me a table runner. She took two 9x36" pieces of fabric, sewed them together lengthwise, hemmed the edges and sewed large rickrack down the center seam. Great idea.
That also gave me the idea to make pillows in the same way just sewing all around. I'm sure I need another sewing project. ; ) But it does sound like fun.
This afternoon I cut out fabric for six more pillowcases. They are really coming along. I finally figured out how to cut the king size sheet so the pieces are squared. I took it to my bedroom laid it out on the floor folded in half. Then I had my dd help me open out each side then refold to the middle and pull it taut. That seemed to work well. Tomorrow I hope to be sewing up a storm. Although we've had so much rain lately that we probably don't need one of those. ; )

There's this great little quilting store in town that has expensive, but fabulous fabric. DD and I went there today for the first time. We didn't have a lot of time, but we found a few cute things. She's going to make me something. (I hope she gets on it soon, because the fabric is so sweet. I'm looking forward to seeing her creation.) I bought a kit to make this bag that caught my eye. After the pillowcase obsession I may try bags depending on how it goes.

Can't wait to get back to those pillowcases. ; ) I think it's probably been good to have other distractions, so I won't get totally sick of making them. God's timing is perfect, He is so good.

My dd told me I'm going to have to stop buying fabric to make more. She may be right. ; ) So far, I'm still enjoying my endeavor. More on that another day.
I'm also thinking of making aprons...

I also finished two more pillowcases. These were a bit more difficult because my measuring wasn't perfect (?). It was frustrating but they did turn out to be pretty.
