Sewing Bee

I had a (very small) sewing bee today with Katie and Sasha. It's been over a year since I did this. (Seriously? Wow) I finally got around to making a pair of pajama pants for my older son. There is no photo because they came out too small but will fit my younger son once I hem them. I also completed sewing a gift for a friend that I started over a year ago. The pieces were all cut out so it came together pretty quickly once I reacquainted myself with my machine. I'll post a picture once it gets to its recipient.

Now I'm at a loss about what to make next. I had fabrics sort of picked out for a simple Kaffe Fassett-ish medallion quilt but I was not feeling it today. The colors are mainly pink, brown and teal/aqua and I'm just not into that combo at the moment. I do have a bag full of quilt tops still waiting to be quilted. Some have been started, some are basted. I thought it would be a good challenge to try to complete them all by the end of the year. But I'm not committing to anything right now. It was just really nice to have a day with some friends and some sewing.
