Creating some new things in the Sewing Room

When I am in the mood to sew - I find it most satisfying. Today was one of those days where I spent the entire day in my sewing room, not breaking for lunch until 2:00. After a quick bowl of cheddar and broccoli soup I went back upstairs for the rest of the afternoon. I have tons of "projects" that I need to complete and that is my goal but I'm not sure they will all get done. I have some fabric that I ordered on line that is called toweling and it comes already hemmed on both sides and then you just cut the length you want for a dish towel or table runner and hem those edges. The fabric is very nice quality and I have made both dish towels and table runners. Today, I am making dish towels with a cute sayings on them. My favorite is "all I need today is a little bit of COFFEE and a whole lot of JESUS". I also made some new pillows using paint cloth from Lowe's. The paint cloths are great for all sorts of projects - banners, pillows, curtains, etc. My favorite way to make pillow covers is the envelope style so that you can get the pillow form in and out easily. I will give a tutorial on that soon, if anyone would be interested. They are so easy - peasy and fun to make. I even made time to make a fall banner and Christmas banner. I need to add a few decorations to the banner before I post a picture but I got the best tutorial for the banner from another blog that I will share with you when I post a picture of the banner. We had a nice rain shower most of the day today and it was much needed. Thank you Lord for all of your blessings and may you all have a blessed week.
