WiP/FMC - More Other Stuff

Another week of "other" sewing, and the stress of it all sent my poor machine to the repair shop. Luckily I finished almost everything first, and spending a couple days with my secondary machine has confirmed my decision not to bring my secondary machine this summer!

Dresses {McCall's 5613}, top {McCall's 6022}, shirts {applique} and shorts {McCall's 6022}

A ribbon blankie divided

I cut hotel kits every day this week - thank goodness! I'm down to one kit {the mason jars} to be finalized before we leave. And it feels so, so good to have these all settled and waiting for me.

 Finished my husband's offensive t-shirt quilt. And...if you want to vote for it, the nomination form is here, and mine is #338. ;)

  1. Those dresses are so cute! :) nice work!

  2. Love the applique shirts, very cute (as is the rest of it). I'm not sure I could sew a 5/8" seam any more. It would look strange.

  3. wow, look at you go! Awesome progress.

  4. Hi Kate, I'm Connie a new GFC friend. I would love it if you stop by, and be mine, too. I love the clothes line display. I wish I could do that, too. It looks like you keep busy.
