Finally Sewing

After going back to work last week, I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Of course this was after I got up at 7:00 on Saturday and started cleaning house.  It was overdue for some cleaning, fortunately it wasn't too bad and I was able to finish what needed to be done by lunch time.  One of my first sewing projects was to de-clutter my sewing room, I don't know why I let it get so cluttered when I'm not sewing, it becomes a dumbing ground for any sewing related item.  After de-cluttering I finished a pair of pants and a blouse that I had started a couple of weeks ago.  They were almost finished, just needed to hem the pants, and sew the one and only button on the blouse.  I really like the way they turned out.  Then I decided to put the binding on a quilt that I am giving to my great niece.  She is only two, but she gets so many toys and clothes that I decided this year I would make her a Christmas quilt, everyone needs their own Christmas quilt!!  I have two more Christmas quilts that I need to get quilted, actually one is at the quilter's now.  My two great nephews are also getting quilts.  Hopefully more sewing this week, now that I am adjusting to working again.

Very pretty quilt. And I can relate to the sewing room getting messy in between projects. My room is also comfy, so I'll go in there just to read, watch a bit of TV or just think. So, it starts getting cluttered with other stuff!

Mine needs a bit of decluttering...
