Some of What I've Been Up to Before and While I was Sick

These are the 20 tote bags I made for my mom. I didn't line them, but made french seams. I was making them in an assembly line fashion. I thought I was so smart and I didn't make a sample one first. When you make french seams you sew the fabric WRONG sides together, I sewed the first 15 wrong. What a waste of a day!
NOTE TO SELF: Make a sample first, then start assembly line!!!! Anyway, I did get them done!!

I joined several Postcard Swaps on Swapbot. This is one of 5 that I had to make on some place that I have lived or visited. I had leftover fabric from the Wizard of Oz swap so I made these Kansas postcards.

These 2 were for a Recipe Postcard Swap

This is one of 3 for the Romantic Postcard Swap.
This is my son and daughter-in-law 3 years ago.

I made 2 of these for a Black & White Handmade Postcard Swap

These are the 2 Candy Postcards that I made
And this is my first ATC that I ever made.
It turned out pretty cute I think!

I've also been working on and completed a ton of swaps that I will post in a couple days after everyone has received their packages. I couldn't do any crafty stuff for a few days and then slowly but surely I got back to doing little bits at a time. Now I have to play catch up!
