Another month gone

This last few weeks have been busy.

I help a friend select fabrics for a new project, she had done great on her own already but just needed a little confidence boost.

Taught a very enthusiastic and eager 14 year old niece how to sew.
There is great untapped talent here, she designed this little raw edge applique for her tote. Unfortunately she lives in a foreign country and won't be visiting soon, but I'm excited to had opened her mind and creativity to the world of sewing.
My sister made me make her curtains for her bedroom.
Celebrated a birthday with my big, loud, fun and very much appreciated family
Best of all, spent time with the little peanut
Although it was a fast paced month, the stash was used more in this short time than it did since the beginning of the year, I just didn't have the time, energy or frame of mind to kept tabs. Now that everyone is gone back home and the household is getting back to normal, I'll tally it up for the next report. It will be good! curtains, pillow cases, tote bags and crib sheets do take a nice chuck of yardage. Yeah!!!

Don't you love it when you can pass your skills on to a family member? I would love to spend with my niece who likes to sew and help her along with a quilt or something but she lives too far away. It looks like you had a wonderful time with your family and that's what life is all about. Happy birthday.
