Small Finish for Friday {09.27.2013}

It has been pretty busy at work, while I prepare for my vacation next week, so I did not get much sewing in. I did manage to finish these extra large chair bags. It is an order for a couple of older boys for organizing their home school equipment. These chair bags can fit dining room chairs and great fro extra storage

My favorite part of the chairs bags is the cool bug experiment fabric. It is designed by Tamara Serrao and available at spoonflower.com. What great halloween fabric too!!ChairBag_ScienceExperiment

Lovely year of finishes: May

It just seemed like yesterday I was doing the mid-month progress. This month was a little slower on my sewing/quilt projects than usual, however by no means was it slow in other aspects of my life :-).

Above is my collage of my finished works for April. I am pretty pleased with what was accomplished. I got a little distracted with Pillows and projects from Patchwork Please but I had had so much fun which is what it is all about.  Great news this week, I also got an order for 5 chair bags….so I am off to work on those 🙂

Here were my goals and where they landed up. My extra projects pictured above were the bag (used for a guild swap), pencil-case and the two cushions that have been my focus this week.

  1. Focus on stock for my Etsy Store.
    • Chair Bags (x2 sets)
      1 set is completed – posted on Etsy and blogged here
    • Oven Mitts (x1 set)
      I finished one for a friend posted here 
    • Coffee Cup Sleeves (x2)
      Completed 3!! and posted in my store….A few kind folks also posted them on pinterest. Blogged here and here
    • Pouches/ Cases (x2)
      I did complete two pouches, just not the two I had planned. Both landed up being gifts. The pencil-case one from Patchwork Please was a lot of fun to make and featured above.
    • Set of place mats (x1 Stretch goal)
      Not surprisingly did not start
  2. Make a Pin cushion (from Patchwork Please) and a travel sewing pouch
    Pin cushion complete and blogged here, also posted on the Zakka Along 2.0 Flickr site
  3. Make a travel baby quilt for charity  (~30x20in.)
    Not started
  4. Madrona Road Challenge – Mini Quilt
    I have managed to get 2 1/2 blocks done. I will have to get a move on or rethink my approach since this Challenge ends May 12th. 

My General goals continue:

  1. Try to eat and exercise to plan
    I think as far as food goes – this month was much more on plan 
  2. Blog regularly using my new schedule
    On target
