And I'm sewing

I decided it was probably not a wise idea to start a fresh project.  I really wanted to, but in the end I opted to work on some of my WIP's.  I participated in two I Spy swaps last year, and just never did anything with them.  I am happy to say one little boy's I Spy top is done.  The other is well on it's way.  As soon as they are done I will cut into my new pretty fabrics.  Not that there aren't other projects to be finished first.

This time I mean it...

I am feeling creative again.  Honestly I have not used my sewing machine in months.  Now that the boys are back in school I have time on my hands and the desire to sew.  My mom, sister, and I went to Joann Fabrics to get some fabric because the first project on my list is fabric shopping bags.  I didn't have any fabric that I really wanted to use for this project.  I usually don't have much luck finding fabric I like there, but this time I found more then what I actually needed. 

I'm also working on a sewing area.  To this point I have just been using the kitchen table to sew, and honestly it's a real pain because I constantly have to put it away to use the table.  Now with the boys in school, I am taking over a corner of the playroom to use as a sewing area.  It's not a beautiful sewing room like many people have, but at least it's an area where I can leave my sewing stuff set up. 

I'm going to go get started on a project now.

I'm working on this bali briefcase pattern.
These strips and this project
are making me slightly nutty.
