I loved the Occupy Your Sewing Room movement started over at Cat Patches!  This has been a busy week for me so it was a good mindset for me to think of myself as “occupying” my sewing room!

I completed the above memory pillow.  This a simple and fun project and makes a lovely gift.  This one is a gift for a daughter whose father died.

I completed several custom sweatshirt totes.  This one we started with an inexpensive, plain sweatshirt and used iron-on letters.  The photos are a blur because these were heading out the door as fast as I was sewing them.

I am beginning another memory pillow this evening which is beginning with a varsity jacket.  The jacket belonged to a man my age who lost a battle with cancer.  His sister asked me to make it – and I learned that he passed away today.  She knew it was imminent but wants it to be a memory for his family.

I also completed two T shirt quilts – but I can’t share those, either, until they have been given as gifts!

So….my sewing room occupation has been successful, but there’s more to do!
