April Showers

1. Mouse's Lovey, 2. Traveling in Circles Tote 3, 3. Spring Table Runner, 4. Dapper, 5. Fox Hollow Box Bag 2, 6. Melford Bag Unplugged 2, 7. Patchwork Bag, 8. Office in a Pouch

April was a crazy month, but somehow in the midst of all that insanity, my projects took on the quiet glow of spring. Funny how life works out that way sometimes...

Most of the finishes above were gifts. I loved making them; I loved giving them away. And isn't that one of the best things about this wonderful hobby?

We celebrated two weeks of incredible tutorials for the workspace during the Girl Friday Sews Blog Hop -- you can find links to all of them in this post. It's been suggested that we have a link-up soon where all of you can share a project that you've made for your workspace from the tutorials or on your own. If you're interested, let me know, and I'll make sure we schedule it and get some prizes involved. I was featured on The Name Game this month, and my Sweet Contrary fabric mosaic made it into the top ten finalists. I'm also gearing up along with the rest of you for Sew Mama Sew's upcoming 10th Giveaway Day -- be sure to stop by here on Monday for a chance at a fun package!

In our home, May is the last month of school, and the beginning of summer's lazy days. I am so ready for them to start...

Linking up to Fresh Sewing Day.
