CCS Sewing break over

My break from charity/CCS sewing ended this last week . I forgot to take a picture of the 20 baby onesies I finished this week & the afghan I crocheted .  It was nice to have the summer off -I did this to catch up on some other projects . Cleaning up the sewing room also reminded me of the many other projects I want to finish. My goal has been to sew at least an hour a day & ive kept to that for the last. I think or so. It's pretty amazing how much you can sew this way.
My quilt -I made the top on the quilt cruise last April is nearly ready to go the long armer .
I'm still all over the place with sewing from Quito g, garment sewing & crafts. But it's ok !!!!

Sewing room cleaning

Yeah !! My messy sewing room is now a place I can actually work !!
It took 3 days . I got rid of lots but also organized everything . Fabric is all
In bins , patterns organized by style , tools put away - :)
I'm anxious to get sewing & it won't stay clean for long , but I couldn't even use the cutting table so it was past time to clean up. 
I took a car load of donations this afternoon- Goodwill, Treasures4teachers & small scraps to dog bed ladies . 
Since I've started garment sewing again I had gained many more sewing items. But it will be nice to know what I actually have & not have to hunt things down while getting frustrated . 
Charity sewing , Halloween table runner , purse for SIL , border print dress are all on list to get started on -plus much,much more 😍

AZ table runner ready to mail

This easy table runner was a recent project at Gourmet Club at my Bernina store. It was fun & slightly tricky to make . I made it for son#2 for his new house . Hope he doesn't see this until the package arrives 😜😜
I used some stash fabrics to make it look like an AZ sunset , but found the feature fabric & backing at Bernina Connection - my home away from home !!
I added the piping to bring out more of the Orange/rust color. I made the piping to thick so I had to roll the binding to the back. The binding is the backing so it blends in but I wasn't happy 
I had to do that. But learning is always part of the sewing process for me .
I have a Christmas one cut out & in the sewing queue.
