I like to see scrap fabric become a stack of finished cozies, pig pillows, hay racks and hammocks. Three different piles of fleece have dwindled to a handful stuffed into a corner of a drawer. I also got to use some of my quilting stash - fabric I was bored with or that really didn't go with anything else. So satisfying to use it!
I like the two shopping bags - and finished in time to be handed off on Saturday. There was very little salmon fabric, so I couldn't do the full swap of bag and handles as I intended. I kept the blue fabric for handles on the salmon bag since I love the combination. I dug out my trusty pastel floral print for the blue bag's handles. Not as stunning, but it works.
I like making mug rugs. I managed to squeak out four of them from the shopping bag leftovers. I'll be backing them in the next fabric and binding in the pastel blue. I hope to have them done by Saturday, too!
I like using stuff, especially when I've held onto it for so long!
I like this bag so much - and I have SO MUCH of this fabric - that I may end up making more of these. This one is going to a friend.

Look! Clean tables and a pile of finished stuff on the shelf!
I really like sewing on my Singer 15-91. I had to pull out my old Graduate to do some zig-zag stitching a week or so ago, and thought "how did I ever sew on this thing?!?" Rob convinced me to buy the 15-91 after I went in a dither over it for weeks. Awesome purchase - I'm so glad I got it!
I like that my sewing room is in much better shape than it was prior to last weekend. I can see the table and most of the chairs are empty. I even have a pattern picked out for the pastel blues and greens. I desperately need to fix my dancing shoes before the New England Folk Festival next weekend. Then I can start cutting and making those blocks. Oh, progress! That's easy to like.
