Meet my WIP basket. We have not been on speaking terms lately, but I have decided to give him another chance. Poor guy is overflowing with un-finished projects, mending, ironing, partialy sewn pieces of clothing, pants with no buttons...YOU NAME IT. I have officially decided to DE-clutter my life a bit. I got rid of TONS of un-used fabric and notions, I have re-organized my craft room, and I am ready to get the mess under control.
STARTING with THIS darn basket!!!!First on the list....pillowcases. A few months back my Mia-Maid girls sewed up some pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer. It is a great organization that gives cute handmade pillowcases to children undergoing cancer treatments. ANYWHO...a few of the girls did not finish and a bunch of the donated fabric was cut and ready to sew.....SO I took it upon myself to finish them on up.
It took a night of mid-night sewing, but I FINISHED. The girls had made 4 and I finished up theirs and made 11 more. We had already sent off 6 from our first go around. THAT makes 21 of these little cuties that are going to be out there helping cute little kids to feel better.
It is a WIN WIN. I get to mark something off my TO-DO list AND help. I used THIS pattern from MADE and still love it....so simple and easy.
Now I have to get myself off to the post office before another 4 months has come and gone!!
Anybody else have a BIG fat basket full of dirty little secrets????
