Good Wednesday morning to you! I woke up to a beautiful foggy morning in my neck of the woods. In fact, when I got out of bed and slipped into my slippers that were next to the open sliding door, I was certain that they were wet! They weren't really wet, but there was a lot of moisture in the air last night, and they felt damp.
Are you a coffee lover? I sure am!! I look so forward to my morning coffee every day. And in the cooler months, I often enjoy a mid day jolt too. Typically I don't care for my coffee sweet. But I love the Pumpkin Spice creamer that is only available during this time of year! It is the only sweetened creamer I like. Thank you Erika!
I have been sewing every day. Trying to get my Etsy shop back up for the holidays. I had a special order Bloomie for a customer in the shop where my daughter works. She wanted a Fall color to wear to wedding coming up.
Since making the mock up version of my ipad case, I have been using it every day. I decided it needed two things. A proper closure, and a lining. Since I was just messing around, with no plan in mind, I didn't make mine with a liner. But if I put them in my Etsy shop, they will of course all be lined. But I had to make mine sort of backwards since I had already constructed the bag. It is fine for me, and the additional quilted lining provides the right amount of padding for this case. I used one of my old funky vintage buttons and made a closure for the bag too. Now I love it!
The inside of the bag, which is the opposite side of the quilted fabric I used to make this.
I also sort of redid a small Fall table topper quilt. It was actually at Gennifer's house. She had it displayed, and I recently saw it and said YUCK!!!! Take that ugly thing down! I made this about 10 years ago, and the topper itself, I loved. I made two actually. I loved the Thimbleberries fabric I used, but I have always hated the ugly prim turkey applique that was front and center on this piece. So I took it home, and did what I could to get rid of it! The quilt was already bound and quilted, so removing the turkey was not easy. I took apart the entire area. I wanted to remove the pumpkins too, since I have come a long way in my blanket stitch since that time, but I couldn't without ruining the whole thing. So I removed the turkey and all the stitching in that area, then added a simple pumpkin applique and restitched the diagonal lines of the quilt. I need to put a blanket stitch on the pumpkin now. So it was sort of saved.
Next up, I had a couple of charm packs sitting in my sewing room. One had already been opened and used for a zipper bag I made. So I just sewed the squares randomly together, and will make a small table topper.
