See you in September Blog Hop...

It is day 6 and my turn to share my summer projects
in the "See You in September" blog hop.
A huge thank you to
Mme Samm at Sew We Quilt our Head Coach,
Shari at Living with Purpose our Head Cheer leader.

and to Riley Blake Designs for printing gingham fabrics...
I love the small, medium and large ginghams...love them all!!

Finish #1 in my parade of summer sewing...

I stitched a pin cushion to match the first Tammy bag I made...
I filled it with ground walnut shells.
It fits perfectly inside the Tammy bag.
(it's the only project in this posting that was not made with Riley Blake gingham)

Finish #2...a few years ago I found a portable ironing board
at a thrift shop...the frame looked brand new but it's 
blue gingham cover really had to be replaced...
it had been loved (used).
Yes...it had a light blue gingham cover.
This blog hop was the perfect opportunity to make things for
my sewing room and my laundry room.
I used the large yellow Riley Blake gingham
and it is just the 'happiest' ironing cover I've made so far.
(3 more to make and all will be made with gingham) 
The embroidery design is an iron on pattern from Colonial Stitching
...an Aunt Martha pattern #3960...Mama's Little Helper


Finish #3...I now have a cover for my iron 
that I can take to classes along with my 'happy' ironing board.


Finish #4 is a clothes pin bag...I love it!!
The embroidery design was a free pattern online. 
My hubby found it online at Tipnut.com
The binding on both the iron cozy and the clothes pin bag
are cut on the bias...perfect for projects with curves, 
and a little different took to the gingham.

Finish #5 is a quilted liner for my wash basket.
I have wanted a quilted liner for my wash basket for a long time
and now I finally have one.

Finish #6 is a Tammy Bag made with RBD aqua gingham and a RBD print...
I added a touch of lace and it is a keeper. I love it!!
I am working on some accessories to match...
a thread catcher and a needle keeper.  
I will share pictures and have a giveaway as soon as I have them stitched.

...and last but not least finish #7...a tea towel.
Sweet as can be and too cute to use!!
The design is from the same pattern from Colonial Stitching
as I used above..Mama's Little Helper.

I really do not know why project I like most, the pictures are so fantastic and your embroideries beautiful. I really have some remorse when I see the lining of my ironing board, I think I really should renew it, especially when I see yours.....

So now I need an iron cover....never saw one before but I now realise that I desperately neeeeeeeed to make one. And I need one of those pin cushions too.....You made me very greedy. Thank you!

Suze said...

You always have projects that whet my appetite. The Tammy Bag pincushion is adorable, as well as useful. The new ironing board cover(s) is adorable. I love the sunshiny yellow gingham and the embroidery is extraordinary. I saw the peek of the other ironing board and love it, too. The iron cover is perfect for carting to class. And I have always loved clothes pin bags. I remember Mom's hanging in the cellar on a window knob across from the washer. ou are decked out with the gingham sunshine yellow liner for your laundry basket. The new Tammy Bag is wonderful. I must try one - some day. And, the tea towel is wonderful. I love that your husband found the pattern. What a great couple! As always, thanks for participating in the hop and stimulating me to think about creativity in a new way.

Loads of gingham goodness on your blog. Hard to pick a favorite but I am really drawn to the embroidered iron board cover, iron cover. Yellow is just so cheerful, don't you think?
