Sew, Sew, Sew!
I have great plans for this weekend and it involves spending a lot of time sitting in front of my sewing machine. It also involves the coming holidays. I may even put some Christmas music on to really get into the Spirit of the season.
My first project will be a tote bag for a Battered Woman’s Shelter. My quilt group gives handmade tote bags full of the basic necessities’ of life. When these women leave their homes they usually do it with nothing but the clothes on their backs and their children in their arms. Every year we make them tote bags and fill them with the basics. It is so wonderful to see the generosity of people, especially quilters.
I have several other projects to get done this weekend – some will be works-in-progress and others will be completed in one sitting. I will show you pictures of my progress and try to show you how to make some very simple but special gifts that you can make for the holidays.
This afternoon we are going to explore some of the coast of Maine. Every Friday afternoon we try to explore a new part of the coast of Maine. We live in such a beautiful area and so much of it is free to the public, especially at this time of year. The tourists are gone and the beaches are empty. The best thing about the ocean is that it is beautiful 12 months a year. We are so fortunate to live here.
So stay tuned for some pictures of my projects and pictures of the coast……
