Still Sewing...!!





The sewing bug is rampant. A while back I did about 16 embroidery blocks with some Christmas designs. I pinned them together and set them upon a stack of other embroidery designs, with the full intent of making a quilt someday. I decided I would take those Christmas designs and make some table runners, a small table center square, maybe a tote or two.
So that's what I've been doing...and I am happy with what I've finished. I have 4 left and I am insistent on getting them into something other than a silly stack on a waiting table. Here's a few.

Wow! I wish I could sew like you do, Carole! I have always wanted to quilt, and just never learned how. *sigh* They are all so gorgeous!! And good for you for pushing yourself to use up those gorgeous squares! hugs!

Sharon, these are wonderful! I absolutely love the tote with the butterfly! I'm sure you don't even use a pattern, but is there a simple one you could recommend or a starting point for a beginner like me? I'd love to make a few simple tote bags. I've got tons of fabric, but don't know where to begin.

Carole, these are fabulous but I have to say my favorite is the butterfly tote.

I can't seem to get any mojo for sewing lately and I have a lot of it that I could be doing.
