Vacation - Days 3 and 4

Day 3 of my vacation was truly a Mr. E day. He decided it was a day to not sleep and to play and play and play. While I had a lot of fun playing with him, I didn't get into my studio. Not a big deal. I would never complain about spending time with Mr. E.

Mr. E went home with mommy last night. After a good night's sleep, a cup of coffee and breakfast I went into my studio. Eight hours later I emerged having pulled fabrics for my Stitcher's Angel projects and finished several other projects.

I made Mr. E two Trick or Treat bags from leftover Halloween fabric.
I used Lazy Girl's With Love Tote pattern.
Instead of using 1-yd of fabric I used FQs.
Little bags for little man.
A few weeks ago I bought a remnant of pre-quilted car and truck fabric.
Of course I had to get it. All it needed was a binding.
I paid $3.74 for a piece of fabric that cost over $15 regular price.
The binding came from my own binding bin.
Not bad for a quick and cheap quilt.
My last two projects of the day are for me. On vacation this past summer DH bought me three pieces of fabric with the understanding that I make something for me. Today I did that. I made a crochet project tote roll and a needle case.
I'm happy with how they turned out.
I still have enough fabric leftover to make another project case.
I'm trying to design a case I can use while doing embroidery.
That's all the vacation news for now. Tomorrow I go back to work. I wish I had a few more days off, but maybe next time I'll be able to take more time off.

You did lots of sewing, I really like your crochet organizer and the baby quilt is so cute!

That crochet hook roll-up is way sweet. Are you taking Mr. E out T&T if it isn't too cold? Around here we always have to plan a coat into the costume. Thanks for stopping by and entering the Kaffe Fassett fabric giveaway.

Your crochet roll looks great...
I recently made a stitchery roll that I can email you pictures of if you're interested.... i couldn't show it on my blog as it was a surprise for someone.
