Three More

Ahh, they're falling like bugs at an ant trap picnic now.

It does help to stack up the orders and cut cut cut first. Then re-stack up the already cut out projects into a pile on the corner of the craft table.

I'm not sure why but the projects do seem to make their way to the "hanging wall" faster if I can cut up a batch before I interface and sew anything. Or perhaps I can only tolerate the slowness of a multi project order in the beginning few days, after that to keep sanity I suppose I need to see tangible progress.

Hipsters are in again this spring. Probably for the summer travelers who want hands-free while site seeing and on trips here and there. I think I might want one now. Oh, will I have time before vacation? Who knows.

The picture of the lilac, celery and brown hipster is just not that great. It is a much prettier fabric in real life.

Last night I took a break from the sewing cave and went to my local quilt shop to teach a class. 1001 Uses Zipper Pouch is what everyone made. It was very fun. There were a mix of experienced and beginner sewers.

I simply loved the look on people faces as they exited with a completed little pouch project in hand.

I already have an idea for another class this summer. Fabric baskets. I'm dying to try one. But, must finish orders first. Whip cracking in background.
