This has been quite a productive week, which makes me very happy!

I completed the repairs on the peach brick stitch. It's not the best repair jobs ever, which disappointed me, but it's done, and is out of my sewing basket. Here are the results.

Speaking of my sewing basket, I've decided it's really time to crack down and finish this quilt. I pulled out my sewing machine, and got it all set up and ready to sew my quilt back together. My to my surprise, when I unfolded the fabric to iron it, it was already done! Either the quilt fairies took care of that for me, or it has just been so long since I worked on it, I forgot I had made it to that point. I think the latter is correct.

While my machine was all set up and ready to go, I decided to mend some clothes. I was so proud that I got it threaded all by myself, then as I began to mend my first shirt, my needle got stuck in the down position - through my shirt. It would not budge. On top of that, thread was all over the place when I removed the bobbin to check things out. After working on it for quite a while, I got it taken care of and figured out I had not popped the bobbin all the way in. Oh well. After that disaster, I successfully mended two shirts, and hemmed two pairs of pants! Woohoo!

I was 'sew' inspired, Mom and I went to the craft store yesterday and came home with fabric for my daughter's Halloween costume, and a little dress for her too. Pics will be up later tracking my progress.

I also made Baby E's candy corn treat bag for Halloween. Not that she'll be able to carry it, but it will be cute while she chews on it! This picture is before it is felted, and before the handles are sewn on. That's the big question of the day - to felt, or not to felt?

Also, check out Limelight Papercrafts today - Mandy's got some really fun stuff going on for world card making day! I'll be posting my pictures for her scavenger hunt on Flickr - user ID Yamma1212, if you want to keep up.
