Aaahhhh ... it's good to be home.

Sometimes, your mom really does know best.  My mom challenged me one night this summer to dust off my sewing machine and sew for 1 hour.  Just 1.  When the hour was over, I had to take a picture of what I had made and text it to her.  I managed to sew together seven honeybun strips.  Seven.

It took me that long because first I had to reacquaint myself with my sewing area.  I hadn't sewn anything in almost two years ... YEARS people!  I was in a funk something fierce.  Anyway, I pulled out fabrics, admiring what I had in my stash, remembering where I had bought most of it, but when I finally sat down and started sewing, the fire in me was lit again.  I have been sewing almost everyday since that fateful phone call from my mom.

Here are some pics (bad pics) of projects I'm working on.  What are y'all doing?
