Clean Up and Free For All Friday

Day 26 of Blogtoberfest.

I made a total of 23 library bags for the kindergarten kids.  Took them over to the school yesterday.  Still have more to make.  I think I will do 2 per day.  But first I had to clean up my messy cutting table.  There was no room to work.  As you can see in the photo, I added some bag fabric to my stash.  Yesterday I ran out of thread, so DH took me over to Fabricland.  I found these wonderful fabrics on theit sales table and got about 3.5 metres for less than $10.   What a bargain!  One is a cute little Paddington Bear print.

Here is what my cutting table looks like after I cleaned up.  All of the scraps are in bins, sorted by colour.  I decided to reward myself for all my hard work with a little mindless sewing.  So I am working on my free-for-all blocks this afternoon.  Nothing more relaxing than that!

Have a great weekend everyone!
