what i've been sewing lately...

This has been a busy week as we are getting ready to go to Waveland, Mississippi on a trip with our church to volunteer with still-ongoing relief efforts from Hurricane Katrina. This will be our 6th trip there, and we have come to love many of the families we have met! But, I have been working on a couple of things. It's hard to keep me from my sewing machine!

layer cake apron

One is this cute "layer cake apron" from the book, Dozens of Ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase. It was so easy to make, and I think it's adorable. I used thrifted vintage pillowcases and some ball fringe my friend, Cheryl, found at a yard sale and gave to me! She knows what I love! I picked up the book at my favorite quilt shop, Sew Bee It. It has tons of cute stuff in it, including purses, little girl dresses, and coasters.

linen and patchwork :: a yummy combination

Another is this pretty linen and patchwork composition book cover and matching zipper pouch. I just love linen with brightly-colored patchwork, don't you?

There are lots of other things on my sewing and quilting to-do list, but that will have to wait until after Spring Break. See you later...I've got some packing to do!
