I need a few more hours in the day...

The weather has gotten nice here, finally, and outdoor gardening & chores combined with lots of sewing activity have made blogging almost impossible. Totes and clothespin bags have been flying out of the shop. A special thanks to all who have purchased something ~ it allows me to be at home and do something that I love to do~sew! The shop is looking pretty empty, so I am hoping also to replenish soon.
Please know that I read and appreciate every comment you leave, and I am truly sorry if I haven't been around to comment in return. Thanks for all your support, and to show my appreciation I am planning a little give-away, so stay tuned...
These are a few of the things I finished recently. This bag is actually a design I've made before...
And this is a barkcloth messenger bag made out of the rest of the curtain panel I bought last fall...
I've made a few of these clothespin bags as well. The apple and pear fabric is so cheerful ~ it's a favorite...
I'm off to do some more sewing, fix dinner, and pick some rhubarb later. Hope you're having a good week!

  3. Your sewing is so beautiful! I understand about not having time to blog. I've been outside often these days planting, cleaning and just generally setting up for summertime.

    Have a wonderful week.

    Debbie,
    Love the bags and I will eventually get to my barkcloth too--if I can find it after my move:-) Did you know it's National Aprons Day on May 14th! I am doing a giveaway on my blog so enter for one of my vintage aprons:-)

  10. Mmmm...I luv rhubarb! I think I finally found a spot where it likes to be since it came back this year. Usually it just disappears!

    That clothespin bag is so cute and cheerful!

  21. I love your blog. I'm new to the "home" blog scene...happened upon it on accident AFTER doing my own!
    I love your purse and clothespin bags! Do you use a pattern for the clothespin holders or make it up? I've been thinking of making some.
