Taking notes and making lists.


I made a list today and stuck to it. The bins are finished and so cute I very nearly kept them for myself. It was hard to decide if I should keep them together or separate them. Too many decisions and not enough time.


Are they not sweet all together?


Gentle yellow on canvas with a hounds tooth fabric trim.


Gingham blue (and yes I changed the trim but I did think twice about it) with pillowcase trim and tablecloth lining.


My weakness...nursery blocks and dogs trimmed in chicken wire fabric and lined in feedsacks of pink and blue floral.


Green with envy...trimmed in yellow and lined in a beautiful vintage basket print.


The one I couldn't throw away...this half of a flower piece was so pretty I knew at least a pocket was possible. I trimmed this in a pale pink Japanese print and it is lined in a deep pink feedsack.


They are all listed now in the shop...there is no hope for me to keep them now. 

Tomorrow I will  only have one carpool lane to sit in. I can hardly believe it. How will I ever get any stitching done without my car lanes?

These are charming. And you are strong to list them. (But just think - you'll get to make more, and you'll love them, too.)

Those are darling. I can see why you would have a hard time parting with them.

Making a list and sticking to it is the best way to get things finished!!

My sister told me that she really loves your sweet bins. I'm going to ask her to pick out a few for her birthday. They are just divine.

Renee, They are wonderful. I love the combinations of the vintage and trims. I can see why you had a hard time parting with them!

Nan said...

So cute, don't see how you have the patience for them but yet what I do maybe a challenge for you. This week I made two blouses and two skirts!
Selling these on Etsy is a great idea for you.
