Rainy Days, Busy Hands

Halloween Banner Bunting

Well, I wasn't exactly productive over the weekend in the manner I had hoped, but I used my time pretty wisely. Halloween buntings were made; I had to try something new.

An order for a Little Sister/Big Sister sorority gift came in last week. I sent out these pretty pillows to an Alpha Chi Omega university girl in Florida. That brought back lots of memories for me! I'm still great friends with a number of my sorority sisters.

Charm packs are in the house -- or at the handmade fair! This Butterfly Garden set is so pretty, and, if used in a quilt, I think it would go great with Olive Kona Cloth for sashing and backing. The fabric was prewashed, so those 5x5 squares will be true after sewing up; no shrinkage to worry about.

I finished up these French Numbered Linen design pillow covers. I have numbers 1-5 ready to go. If you have an embroidery machine, I have the digitized designs for sale as a set. Also, if you love the numbered look for your home and can sew yourself, just order the embroidered panels from me. You can choose colors and fabrics.

Time to start loading up for the craft fairs on the calendars. This pop art curvy wristlet is so sharp! I'm begging myself not to get any more new ideas and just start pumping out the list of 100 products that I have listed and have purchased supplies for. So, everybody on my Google blog roll, please stop posting the wonderful, new tutorials until after the holidays!

I know! There are just too many great ideas that flash across my screen every day...maybe I need to stop reading blogs until after the holidays... No, on second thought, I don't think I could do that.

Your items all look great!

I have a question could you embroider a phrase as well as sorority letters onto a pillow? Like sleep tight pretty girl or something and then the letters at the bottom?
