After a rough start this week has turned out pretty great. Having my mind at ease helped me to concentrate. So I could bust out the rest of my Color Me Creative basic sewing kit. I now have a new journal, (tutorial) zipper pouch, (tutorial) sewing mat, (tutorial) needle case, and pin cushion. I’m looking forward to using them at my next retreat in a few weeks.
Though Wednesday the pin cushion and sewing mat got a test drive. I had six, 12- 13 year old girls show up and help me sew another Quilty Hug. You may remember the pieces I had cut out Monday. Each girl sewed at least one row in this cute little quilt. Didn’t they do a lovely job? This is a free tutorial in case you want to make one yourself.
In addition to helping me sew they brought me my favorite treats. Yum! It was such a fun night. I hope we will be able to do it again.
This weekend Anna and I will be at the farmer’s market. I’m stocked with pumpkin spice for the cooling fall weather. I was a little late getting our Spiced Cider made. It will have to wait until next market. Watch for it and all our other great skin loving soaps in our Etsy Shop.
