My 100 Day Sewing Challenge: #29

Before we get started on today's post, I want to thank Janice J. for her generous donation.  Thank you for supporting the work I do here!

I've been sewing up a storm!!!!  I sewed for 6 days for at least 15 minutes each day!!!  Can you believe it???  I was at 78 days and when I add in these 6, that puts me at 84 days.  I'm closing in on finishing up this 100 day sewing challenge!

We had some cold weather last week so I took advantage of staying inside and took to my sewing machine!

Take a peek at what I've been stitching up ...



These pillowcases which are now listed in my shop.


These pillowcases which are also now listed in my shop.


These also and they are listed in my shop as well.


As I've been cutting out the pillowcases, I've been cutting the leftovers into strips.  I've cut 1 inch, 1.5 inch, 2 inch and 2.5 inch strips!  They went in the appropriate boxes where they will wait until I'm ready to use them in a quilt.


I'm still working on clues number 5 and 6 in the mystery quilt I'm working on.  I like to pin pieces together that are to be stitched and then sew them up a few at a time right before I start on each days sewing project.

That's it for me, what have you been sewing, crafting, knitting or crocheting?

  1. You are making some gorgeous pillow cases. I hope you get lots of sales. I have been working on my goal of learning embroidery. I have made another pocket pincushion with a small embroidery at the front of the pocket. I finished of the single bed crochet blanket for Katie's Jared. This is in the gift cupboard until his Birthday in May. I am currently working on some more cotton crochet face cloths to go in a parcel for the new baby due in May. I have plans to make this new baby and her big sister a crochet hooded jacket each. I have some lovely soft Aussie wool in pink and apple green for this. I'm off to continue on washcloths.

  3. The new pillowcases look amazing! I hope you have many orders and get to sew some more very soon! It is very inspiring to me that you continue with your quilting in little bits. I hope to get back to that one of these days. I have way too many projects started that I'd love to work on. It's a matter of organization.

  5. Patsy you have been going so well with making all of your lovely pillowcases :). I hope that your shop takes off for you and you make some extra income for your family.

    Also try eBay as well to diversify a bit. I know here in Australia anyway we get 40 free listings for the month as a regular seller without opening a shop. To open a shop costs a certain amount a month which I choose not to do.

    It is all worth a try as the more places you have your products listed the greater chance your items will sell and if you sell an item you can always remove them from sale from your other shops until you have made more.

  6. I love your choice of colors for the pillowcases! I wish you great success!
    I’m still plodding along with hand sewing a baby quilt. I have nine rows done with four to go. Once I get those done, i’ll See how large (or small) it really is. I may need to add another row or two. Then, I need to decide if i’m going to appliqué on the front and with what design. Or, just quilt it heavily with designs and words. (The fun parts!)
