Happy Friday! My friend Amy and I decided to save up our finished projects for a Friday reveal – she has a Mr. Linky up for you to join in and share your finishes with the rest of us too!

Not that I would have been able to post anything earlier! We have had a busy week getting ready for school . . . well child checks, immunizations, school shopping and trying to sleep and sew a bit too :)

My first finish is the sample bag for my LQS – Seasons of the Home – I should have taken a picture of it hanging with my pattern at the shop when I dropped it off today. Next time! I had the kids with me and we were on our way to the outlets for new shoes :)
The fabric line is Lily Pond by In The Beginning – It’s cute and really soft!

With the extra backing/binding fabric from my zig-zag quilt I made a quick skirt for Ella. Great fit with no need to alter it for her! It goes past her knee too, so it will fit for a while – hopefully :)
Hem detail — This skirt was so fast! I could have been done in an hour, if I had elastic on hand (never), I used princess seams to hide all the unfinished bits and the hem is a band added with princess seams, and top stitiching to finish it off nicely. Maybe a tutorial is in order – what do you think?

Finally – A Notion Or Two blocks for Sarah! I managed to squeak out 6 blocks from the fabric that she sent –
Aren’t they fun!? 6″ squares using 1 – 1 1/2 ” strips – can’t wait to see this one come together.

So now it’s your turn to sew-n-tell! Visit Amy and link to your recent finish, and maybe just maybe we can all be motivated to finish more together next week!

I still have a mega to-do list that needs to get cleaned up, not sure how the weekend will go, but I’m hopeful :)
