I have a few ArtBins which have little odds & ends tucked into them... partially finished patchwork panels, some EPP hexies, little quilt blocks, etc... they’re not big projects, but pretty little things that have been waiting (for well over a year I might add!) for some love & attenion!
I forgot about them, (or ignored them if truth be told) but while I was cleaning and organizing my sewing room I opened the little bins to see all those little unfinished projects that I did at one time have plans for. I decided that I would complete each and everyone one of them, in one way or another in the next few months!
So, today I finished up my custom sewing then moved on to my UFO (Un-finished Objects). I had 2 patchwork panels made with beautiful Liberty of London fabrics sitting on the very top of the pile, so today was the day they were going to get their 15 minutes of fame. *wink* They were already attached to the linen pieces on top & bottom, but nothing else was done on them at all. I was inspired to create pouches with them, so I finished them both off today...
I’ve only snapped photos of the blue Liberty pouch so far, (the other is pink was was done later in the day) but i’ll definitely snap photos of the 2nd Liberty pouch tomorrow to share. I really love this one though... lots of quilting, cotton lace, coconut beaded zipper charm, leather tag... just so much goodness!!

I’m really happy with how they turned out and as always, it’s wonderful to sew on my own terms. I feel most creative when I have 100% freedom, no stress, just creating for the sake of beauty! It’s a good thing!
I’m not sure what UFO i’ll tackle next, but when I do, i’ll blog about it again.
Tomorrow I think i’ll tackle a couple of my smaller custom orders: coasters, keyfob, and then Saturday I have an NCW sitting on my list! I think i’ll get the ironing and fabric cutting for that order accomplished tomorrow. Thankfully, I had a couple custom orders come in today, thank God as Dh only got 7 hours this week... *thud*.
Anyway, I won’t bore you any longer... and my dinner is ready. Yes, I eat WAY late... lol! So on that note, have a wonderful evening! Thanks for peeking in!
