See YOU In September (Seriously Already) and Giveaway

SEE you in SEPTEMBER BLOGGERS..
 
HELLO ALL!!
 I have missed you
all sew much.
 
Thanks of course to Mdm Samm of Sew We Quilt
and Shari of Living with Purpose 
 
 
I have been super busy
doing a little remodeling
throughout the WHOLE
summer.
 
I have painted 4 rooms
inside of our home and painted the complete outside
of our home also.
WAY to much Painting
and not enough sewing.
(I could have shown you pictures of that,
but they are not as fun)
 
And on top of it all
I was unable to use my
sewing machine,
but in the process I did
A LOT of hand stitching
 
First, I finished this cute little bib.
I decided to applique the flower
instead of stitching it.
 
 

 
Next, I did a little embroidery on
a Retro Apron.  I think I
am going to have to add
a little ruffle to the edge.
But with only having a sewing
machine for the past week.
It had to wait for my last project.

 
 
 
My Sewing Room Quilt
It is in my very favorite colors.
I absolutely adore
RBD Gingham in Aqua.
Just beautiful.
 
 
 


And here is a little peek of my sewing room
I can't wait to have it all
put together and organized.
 
 
I do have my fabric
in order, so
very soon I can
get busy quilting away.
I hope you all
enjoyed my  summer SEWING projects.
 



 
 
You can find all the embroidery patterns, apron,
and bib I used
 

Sew, How about a giveaway?

Each winner will receive

  10. YES. It is September already! And after all the rain we had over here, it felt more like a rain season then summer.... Luckily we will be having an Indian Summer (well, according to the people that promised us the hottest summer ever.....) lasting till October.
    I love your apron most. No, I mean the quilt. No, no. The bib..... I love them all! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  11. You have been busy, busy, busy this summer. You must have quite an arm from all that painting, Your stitching is great and I love the touch of applique on the bib. You are quite a seamstress to be able to whip out that wonderful quilt in just a week of having your machine back. Wow! It is awesome. I love it. I wish my sewing room looked any where near that neat. Thanks as always for participating and all the wonderful inspiration.

  16. Great projects Amy! Love, love, love your gingham quilt! Beautiful hand stitching...and now really, who doesn't love aprons? Isn't summer just the time for renovations and painting, painting, painting (or in our case staining the decks and walkways) *smile* now that Fall is coming things will slow down a little...enjoy your Fall garden!

  17. What a sweet little bib. It must be the year of painting. I will be starting mine this week since the temperatures are not too hot. I see you have a couple of helpers in your fabric storage or msybe they are gaurding it ;) Thanks for sharing off to the next blog. Cheers!

  25. I, too, was covered in paint this summer. A fresh laundry room (which is the entry most use when visiting our home) and a remodeled sewing/school room are the results. Not much sewing, but lots of fun new spaces to create in. I love that bib and your quilt. The colors actually match my sewing/school room!

    ReplyDelete
  26. With all of that painting, I'm surprised you even had time for hand sewing. Love the bib and apron, but especially the sewing themes on the quilt. The quilt will be a perfect focal point in your sewing space. Great job!

    ReplyDelete

  51. I admire you for being able to survive while not having a sewing machine for so long. I think I would probably end up in the loony bin if I couldn't sew for that long. Hand stitching might help some, but I sure do find comfort in the purring of the sewing machine motor. :-) Your projects look great and I am looking forward to seeing the finished room.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love your summer projects. The bib would be perfect for my new neice and the apron just right for me to stitch while I watch the Great British Bakeoff.
