Oh, I'm SO happy! I finally got some time to sit down and MAKE something! A few somethings, actually! Today was the first time I sat down and sewed since October 6th. That's WAY too long!

First off, for the Sweet Dreams Quilting Bee I made these blocks for Missy:
Blocks For Missy/chmihen SDQB
She sent "Katie Jump Rope" Fabrics... some of my all time favorite fabrics!!

Then for the Buzz Cuts Bee I made these blocks for Andrea:
Buzz Cuts October 2009
She sent Michele D'Amore fabrics- also some of my favorites!!

And finally for the day I made a laptop case for my sister!! The print is a Kaffe Fassett fabric, and the pink is a Moda, but I don't know what line it's from.

I also did the fall cleaning in the kitchen today... emptied all the cabinets and scrubbed them, washed ALL the dishes (yikes!) cleared off all the counters and scrubbed them, scrubbed the appliances, swept and scrubbed the floor... it looks so nice and clean now :)

Tomorrow I plan to make November bee blocks, make a quilted backpack that was commissioned by a friend, and finish up the set of 6 grocery bags I'm making for myself. I also have a few quilts I'd like to get quilted, so I may load one on the frame tomorrow and get going on that, too!

It feels good to have my creative mojo back :)
