Fresh Sewing Day

October was full. There was Sewing Summit. There was a blog hop. There was a challenge project. There's been a festival. My sewing machine was in the shop for 12 days. Life went on. In reality, the mojo came in spurts. Thankfully, I managed several littles. And one uber-special biggie.

To say I'm proud of my Weekender Travel Bag is a huge understatement. I still don't know why I even thought I should or could make it. But I'm sure glad I did. It's been great fun to use, has helped introduce me to some fun people, and just plain feels like an accomplishment. yay.

Two of this month's projects are my own design {the Logo Card Holder and the Mod Angles Cushion}. That's gratifying. And two represent a new type of project for me - the glue-in metal frame purses. I'm still pretty pleased about them and am anxious to make more.

So all in all it's been kind of an odd sewing month. {Read: there are no quilts in my mosaic!} And I'm fine with it. And ready to flip that calendar.
Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day.
