So excited....

That is how I have been feeling lately.I love getting mail and have been waiting for what seems like forever for these books. They finally came yesterday and I'm loving all three. They have some much great stuff in them, I don't know where to start!

This is the bag I got from the We the People Swap. I love how it goes great with the jacket I just bought!

My other projects, in no particular order...
A tunic shirt for my daughter. She picked out the fabric and was very proud of that fact. She wore it to church last Wednesday and told everyone that she had picked it out.

The project that is currently waiting for me. The pieces are all cut out, I just need to start the sewing. I'm making the version on the live model. My newest bag...the "Swing Bag" by Amy Butler. I really like the blue on the inside of this one.
My next dress. I'm making the green and white dress with no jacket. The fabric is washed and is waiting for me, but one dress at a time is about all I can handle right now.

A gift bag for a present. Now that I know how to makes this, I may never use wrapping paper again! (Well, not true, but you know what I mean). These bags are so fast and easy and the person getting the gift can use the bag for whatever that want!

Coasters I made for my MOPS group. I'm including two tea bags with them and giving them as table favors at the next meeting. These are the coasters from this tutorial. They are fast, easy, and fun to make.

I also made some camo PJ's for my husband, but I haven't snagged a picture of them yet. I'm trying to decide what to make for my son (he's only five months, but I don't want him to be left out). I thinking some blocks, or the ball in "Seams to Me". Right now, that is on the top of my list for him.

Thanks for sharing your blog! I am NOT a seamstress, but I am so tempted by it all.

I love the bags you are making. I may attempt one. And the coasters fantastic!

I was thinking of doing some kind of sewing project as one of MOPS creative activities. But I'm just a little worried about how it would go.

Keep sharing! You're inspiring me :)
