Surfacing.......

It's hard to believe that summer vacation is almost over for me.    Life has been nuts this summer for me as I've been working the equivalent of about 3 jobs - the PT job at the store (double+ the normal hrs), the commissioned sewing, listing stuff for sale on ebay and looking for and applying for jobs.   All while trying to get the drivers ed stuff in line for certification so I can start doing that as well.   Did finally get my DE license and now have my first student lined up for driving lessons...a little scary to think I'll be doing this on my own now and not with someone else in the backseat making sure that I don't forget anything.  

As a result of everything going on this summer has been the commisisoned garment sewing.  Am now on the last two garments in the stack that had been cut out a year ago.   Once these are done I'll have finished 29 different garments.    Still have fabric for at least another 27 garments.   And I know there is more fabric than that, just need to cut the first round of scrubs so I know what is left in the way of the fabric she sent me in June.

Another thing that I've been doing is a wee bit of cleaning and then sorting through fabrics and other stuff to sort out and list more things.   Have made it thru half of my stash of FQ's and pulled out a bunch to list for sale.   Just need to get pictures of them and then list them for sale.

In my cleaning forays (called emptying bags....) I found a stack of 5" wide strips that I came home with after a customer abandoned them (what can I say, they were counted as remnants and cost very little).   12 different fabrics that I've had for several months.........they are now out of a bag, but I have no clue what I want to do with them.   Did see one possible quilt but am still thinking about possibilities.

Colors are peaches, turquoise, gray and white....the peach and gray not my normal colors to work with.     Any ideas for quick and easy baby/toddler quilts that I could do from 5" strips?

Gratitudes:

1. Sinuses all seem to be clear w/no signs of infection - the surgery worked!  So thankful for this.

2. Summer has been mild in terms of heat this year.....if more than a bit soggy because of all the rain.

Check: Anasazi Medallion and Cobblestone Path. Both are designed for dessert rolls, which are five inches wide. This Amazon Book might give you more ideas when you look inside or from Missouri Star's idea. Something will pop up into your brain. Luckily, her taste wasn't awful!

Sorry, Moira, my brain does not work with quick and easy. I have no ideas for you but your fabric is beautiful. Enjoy!
