Motivated To Sew

I've been a busy little bee in the sewing room the last couple of weeks. Recently I helped my mama paint her bedroom a pretty sky blue. We switched out her old dresser and desk for a 1920's antique dresser and wardrobe, changed her bedspread and curtains, and tossed out a lot of clutter. I made her a wall hanging and pillow covers that will match the new blue and green color scheme.  She loves her new room, it's now a bright, comforting place to be.

Naturally, once I got started more ideas popped into my head and I kept on sewing. My newest design is the Sammie bag, a cute tote which fits a 10” tablet, or it can be used as a purse. 

I'm working on another one later today, but first I have to clean my house. It didn't get much attention last week between sewing, mowing, and going places.
