She who dies with the most fabric wins

(sorry to anyone who is getting this post on their reader twice--technical difficulties)
If you've visited my Etsy shop lately, you'll see that the bags listed there are starting to gather dust and the shop needs some serious love and updating. I'm considering a clearance sale, to clear out the old and bring in the new, but that requires having some new.

During the all-too-recent months of pregnancy blech, I would often lay in bed, stare at my sewing machines and find myself nauseous and overwhelmed at the thought of ever sewing again. It was a bleak, sad time and I was a teeny bit afraid that the love wouldn't come back. But it did and I am oh-so-glad.
Luckily, my 3-year-old is still the best napper there ever was, and while James is at school in the afternoons, I have 2ish hours of generally uninterupted sewing time. It is precious and I love it. So, one of these days I plan to attack this awesome stack of fabric and drum up some new bags for limabeanhome.
But for now, I am happy for the success of Classichound and the doggie bags, because they are keeping me busy. As is my sister who always has a custom project in the works for the ranch and her awesome bosses.
For these pillows I finally learned how to do invisible zippers. They are so much better-I might not ever use a regular zipper again.

Yay! I am so glad the love of sewing came back! :) Oh - and I might be able to give you a run for your money on the fabric race! Ha!
