Sew and Tell


This week I have started a lot of projects and have only finished one. I made these 6 notebooks for my etsy shop, and 5 were purchased before I could list them. The one on the bottom row in the middle is still available, and will be listed tomorrow.

Also in the works are Easter dresses (better late than never, right?), a large purse for a customer, and a furniture make-over. We were in Home Depot today, and I decided that I wanted to paint some of our outdoor furniture red. Instead of waiting on it, we bought the spray paint and got to work. It's been fun, but it's a windy, cloudy day. We're going to do touch-ups tomorrow, and then I'll post some pictures. Anyone seen aqua/turquoise outdoor pillows?

Thanks, Amy, for hosting this fun link-up party! Go check out the other projects. Sew inspiring!!

I see that you are now doing them with one solid outside piece instead of the strips. Saves a lot of time, no?

Ah! If I were in a place where I could order these, I'd get one for myself and one for each of my three daughters! They are so cute!
