To Sew and Sew and Sew

I've been doing a lot of sewing lately. 
Some stressful.
Some personal.
Some commissioned.
My most recent project consisted of pastel fabrics in pink;
And blue;
As well as green and yellow.
All this lovely fabric was turned into napkins; 72 napkins to be exact. 
They were made for an upcoming banquet Elizabeth's Bible Study class will soon be having.
Pink was the most requested color by the girls.

Completed Canopy Bed

I am so excited to finally have Elizabeth's canopy bed finished. What a job it turned out to be; way harder than I expected but well worth my time.
 I used sheer curtain panels for the canopy sides. 
Along the top edge I made a ruffle from lace fabric.
The same lace fabric was used for the tiebacks as well.
 I used satin fabric for the top of the canopy which blocks the light very well.
Elizabeth closed the sides last night so it would feel like sleeping in a tent. The bad part? When I tried to wake her up this morning she didn't want to leave her bed :o)

Glass Jars

I have an addiction to glass jars. Oh how I love them!
 These gallon size jars were purchased at an estate sale for 25-cents each.
What a plus to have the labels still attached.
I love using jars this size for my wheat. 
Each time I see them sitting on the counter it makes me want to bake bread.
