Current Projects Around Coffee Time

Believe it or not, I do still sew!
Here is a Sleepover Bag made from a pattern by Melly & Me.
It's on its way to Treasured Threads to be a show sample.
Mr. E needs new bedding for his new room that is fit for a little boy.
He is getting two quilts: an emergency vehicle quilt . . .
And a road construction quilt.
And curtains.
The colors don't match in the photos,
but the stripe fabric is the same fabric in all the pieces.
I changed my fabrics for em ay kay ee's {Make} A Bag Sew Along.
I have a package of Moda's Summer in the City charms.
Right now these fabrics are speaking to me more than my previous fabric choices.

I started working on the bag today and I'm up to the quilting step. I'm trying to decide what color to use for the quilting. I'm going to outline quilt the seams so I don't want the color to jump off the fabric. I'm thinking of using white thread. I tried pink, brown and turquoise, but none of them seemed to work.
The crochet hooks are still flying around here too.
I crocheted a journal cover for a swap gift and it's on its way to my partner.
And here is a stack of crocheted items waiting to become something.
Cryptic, I know. They are for a swap gift and the partners are not secret.
I guess that's all the news for today. The weather has been gorgeous. Mr. E is delightful as ever. Life is good.

What's happening in your studio these days?

Sweet P

Not much. I wrecked my hands doing yardening and I need to get healed to be able to do anything.

You are so busy! I can't seem to get motivated. Maybe seeing things that everyone else is doing will get me moving again!

I think I would use white for the quilting as well, if you don't want the stitching to "jump out". I used black sparkly thread on mine because I had a new spool of it that I wanted to try out - I only did minimal simple meandering, but it looks really good! Make sure you send your photo to the flickr album!
