Back at it

After a brief hiatus from sewing I finally made this jumper for Ms. A. I found the pear fabric at my favorite quilting shop a while back. As soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. The striped fabric came in one of my scrap swap packages.
I discovered that even though I have a nice organized room upstairs for sewing, I prefer to cart everything downstairs so that I can be in the middle of things. I had been using a chair to stack all my supplies but found this great bag yesterday. It is meant to hold a sewing machine on the bottom, but mine is too big. It is just the perfect size to hold all of my current fabrics and patterns. In the top bag I put all my notions and tools. I wheel it up next to my sewing machine and have everything I need at my fingertips. When I'm finished, I just put everything back in the bag and wheel it into a corner. I love it!

How creepy is this? I have a photo on my camera of my new sewing machine carrier. I was getting ready to download it and checked your blog first. Crazy!!

What a doll she is! And what a perfect little romper to play in. I have a suitcase that is similar and I love to take all my stuff to a quilt class in it. It just holds tons. I read back and you are doing lots of swaps. How do you keep up with those and kids too? I barely keep up with just my husband! Blessings, marlene
