Friday Night Sew In

Last night I took some much needed time
to lock myself in my sewing room.

I love Friday Night Sew-In's.
You can get the button for this monthly event

It was great therapy to shut the world out
and just be in my room creating all these yummy projects.

I got 2 quilt backs sewn together
and they'll be off to the quilter today
(thanks, Sarah!)
I have two more quilt backs to go
and then I will be caught up with those.

Melissa from 100 Billion Stars
designed this adorable tutorial.
I love her patterns.
They are so easy to follow
and the end result always makes me happy!
Plus, as you know, she's just one of my all around
favorite people.
If you aren't already following her blog,
you really should.
She has been a HUGE inspiration to me.
I used Good Fortune by Kate Spain
for everything but the strap.
For the strap I used Terrain,
also by Kate Spain.
(cause, you know, I think she's pretty awesome too)
Melissa & Kate go well together,
don't you think?

I also made this zipper pouch
using this pattern

This pattern has GREAT instructions for zippers.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
Mine is full of busy things,
so I'm glad I had last night to myself.
I gotta say,
I do like my own company.

Make it a good one!
