I have done a little bit of sewing over the last few weeks, mostly trying to make some progress on my two UFOs and my one WIP. I am happy to report that they are all getting closer to finished, although none of them are yet.
I did spend a little time last weekend to tame the scraps that I throw into scrap bags. I had three that were stuffed to overflowing, so I made a couple new bags and sewed up some of the existing ones. I now have a stack of 5 or 6 pet beds that are ready to be dropped off at the Humane Society. I stuff them with the small pieces of fabric and batting that are too small or oddly shaped to use in even my scrap baskets. It adds up over time! I have heard that not all places take them, so I suggest a quick call to your local shelter, kennel, or vet to see if they can use them. When I drop them off, I always let the person taking them know that they can be washed in hot water.
The day after I made the pet beds, I went on a little shopping trip with my mom to celebrate "visit your quilt shop" day. We had a little fun at The French Seam and I picked up a couple patterns and some fabric to make (what else) a new purse! I had also made a stop at a store the prior day to pick up a couple zippers to make some makeup bags.
