Sew and tell

I'm joining in on Amy's sew and tell this week! I am always sewing something :)
Here are some of the things I have been working on this week. Above are some Bird Cage Christmas ornaments, I love these, I made some for myself last year. The backs of them are vintage linens, and besides the cream fronts, the fabric for these came out of my scrap bag, which I love, I need to use up those scraps!

I have been slowly working on a quilt for my youngest Sage. I had my kids pick out their fabrics from my stash months and months ago for their new quilts. I feel bad it has taken me this long, but what do you do? I especially feel bad because Sage (who is 5) has never had a bed sized quilt of her own. What kind of a Mom am I? :) Stay tuned for the finished quilt though, I love, love all the fabrics each of my girls picked out, they are going to be so cute.

I also finished a batch of girls purses. That mushroom one is my fave. I am getting ready for all my holiday shows coming up. They start up next weekend!

The bird cages are super sweet. I love the bags, too! What a cute idea. My girls might actually like something like that! (I can't do much convincing of wearing dresses or skirts). Oh well...
Good luck with your craft shows, I have one tomorrow.

ps, I love your ticket tags, super idea.

Oh, super cute bird ornies, Amy, how clever! Love the bags, too and I had to go back to see the tags, adorable! It's the little things like that that get my attention when I'm shopping.

The fabrics for the kids' quilts look great and fun to work with. (That always helps, right?) lol

I really like your bird ornaments. Very cool that you were able to use your scraps with vintage linens. Cute purses and like that you let your daughters pick out the fabrics for their own quilts. Enjoy the weekend.

What great projects! Looks like you had a very busy week!

Don't feel too bad that you haven't finished a bed quilt for your daughter yet. I'm slowly working on the first one for my oldest son, and he's 22 years old! lol No matter when you finish, they will love them to pieces. ;o)
