A Day of Sewing

So work lately has been crazy thanks to this nasty cold weather. I work for a disaster restoration company. Because of the cold snap there have been so many homes with frozen and broken pipes that as the scheduler  I have been putting in long hours. I was worn out this week to say the least. A little grumpy, a lot tired, and my house was a mess. We ate out almost every night this week because by the time I got home from work I was not in the mood to make dinner. By the time Saturday came around I decided I was taking a day to do whatever I wanted. I still managed to get all the laundry done, groceries bought, and a load of dishes in the dishwasher. I managed to eek out some projects that I had wanted to get done. 

I was finally able to check this off my list. I wanted some bean bags for my toy room since I have the nieces and nephews over frequently. I also wanted some to use when I sew. When I am cutting out large pieces I like to use the bean bags instead of pinning the large piece. I generally only use these when I am cutting said piece out on my rotary mat with my rotary cutter. 

 This I finished late Saturday night. It was a belated Christmas present for a dear friend. I had gotten her something for Christmas, but it didn't seem to fit her personality. I went back and forth what to do for her. Finally yesterday, it dawned on me. Rachel loves to cook and her favorite color is orange. Thus the idea for this was born. I gotta admit. The bow in the front is fantastic and turned out just how I wanted! She loved it so much she hugged me 3 times. She would hug me, look at the apron and then hug me again. She's so fun.

And last, we did these vases for the weekly youth meeting on the 9th.  I hadn't posted these yet so thought I'd include it. It is tin cans wrapped in canvas and burlap ribbon I found at Wal-Mart with embellishments. My favorite is the one with tulle and the pearl button.
