Fresh Sewing Day: Happy July!

First day of July! Like most of us, I'm not sure how it came to be July already. I've had a great summer, although (unsurprisingly) less has been accomplished in the dissertation area than might be hoped. Ah well.

I don't have a lot of big project finishes this month, owing to a typically nomadic summer for me that found me in Michigan for over a month with only my little sewing machine! Still, it was nice to try some new things, such as bags.

June 2012 finishes!

I've got one quilt top done, and another in the works, so my July finishes will have more quilts!

There's one picture in my collage I haven't blogged about yet-- my new pincushions! I made these this afternoon out of some scraps. I didn't have one before, and now I have two. Easy and cute!


I'm linking up with Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day and also the Small Blog Meet! I'm looking forward to checking out some other new blogs!

  4. I love your pincushions!! I don't have any either and am thinking of making one that straps to my sewing machine or one like your's! What did you use to stuff them?

    1. Thanks! I just got a bag of fiberfill at JoAnns--the smallest, cheapest kind they had, nothing fancy. :) And you should make both kinds, in my opinion. :)

    1. Thanks Karen! The orange bag is actually the same bag as the green one next to it-- it's reversible! I made up the pattern, so I can't direct you to anything helpful for it-- but I might use that for my tutorial on the Plum and June Blog Hop, so stay tuned!

    1. I was in Grand Rapids for the bulk of it, with visits to East Lansing and Rochester Hills. Are you a Michigander? (Michiganite? Michigonian? I don't know what the correct demonym is!)
